"I’m very temperamen­tal, but I’m working on it"


Krishna Shroff is happy to have created an identity for herself unrelated to her famous film family, comprising her father, Jackie, brother, Tiger, both of whom are famous actors, and mother Ayesha. But Instagram’s ‘It’ girl (with 1m followers) remains rooted to her family. “We’ve always been extremely close since it’s been just been the four of us. We are each other’s biggest supporters and critics. Family's opinion matters the most when it comes to work,” she says.

A nomad at heart, Krishna says, “You will never find me in one place for too long. Growing up, I looked up to my superhero brother and his grit and determinat­ion; but I definitely drew inspiratio­n from people I met on my travels.”

Founder of the MMA Matrix gym, Krishna shares, “I believe in balance, so I don't shy away from chocolate and champagne even when it isn’t a ‘cheat’ DAY.”—DINESH RAHEJA

List three things nobody knows about you.

1. I’ve been told I have a resting b***h face and am pretty unapproach­able. But I promise you, we can be best friends too.

2. I’m extremely claustroph­obic.

3. I’m very temperamen­tal, but I’m working on it and getting better at it too. It took me ages to think of these three things because I’m an open book.

Would you go on a date with someone you met on social media?

Yes. Been there, done that. It was Facebook.

One relationsh­ip rule you follow.

Live and let live, but respect the boundaries people set.

Your midnight munch? Grilled cheese.

Your favourite exercise? Squats. All day, every day.

A health shot you swear by. Hot water with lemon on an empty stomach in the morning. And fresh ginger root tea before bed.

A podcast you are listening to. I love the Joe Rogan podcast.

A perfume you keep on your bedside table?

The entire Miss Dior collection.

One thing you do for your mental health.

Keep my circle extremely tight.

{ Bedside stories }

Your favourite breakfast in bed?

I always have breakfast in bed.

And it's always eggs, toast and a black coffee. Don’t talk to me before that.

What do you wear to bed?


What are you reading in bed right now?

I don’t read. I usually fall asleep to cooking videos.

Are you big on sleepovers?

Actually, I don't like them. I don’t like anyone in my bed, so I avoid sleepovers. I love my own space.

What are your guilty pleasures? Champagne, pizza, and Nutella straight from the jar.
