Tell us about your roleFeels like home

My character name is Biba and the show is about four boys trying to figure out life. I play one of the boy sisters on the show. Biba, the character I play is a typical Delhi girl who lives by her own rules. At the same time, she is very motherly towards her brother as she is much older than him.

I’m getting married on the show, which is really fun and you’ll see a lot of it. I was able to wear the best clothes, the best make-up and also had an imaginary wedding. Biba as a character is very ambitious for me because I’m not as outgoing as Biba.

Your journey from influencer to actor.

It was a roller coaster ride. It was generally enjoyable because I made some amazing videos that still surprise me to this day. And I keep doing them because it’s a lot of fun to write comedy and perform it. But at the same time, there was this actor side that was hidden in me and that I try to pursue now. So when this character came along, it was really nice because he’s not a big character. It is an impact without which the show will not be able to move forward. My manager, Sahir Raza, made me feel at home. When you’re shooting at home as an influencer, there’s only a tripod and a camera, but when you go on set, there’s at least a hundred people, so it can put you on a place if you are not used to it. So, I had those moments, but my journey overall has been very fulfilling.

You hate the word influencer, but you are one.

Yes, there was a time when I did, but not anymore. I think we have to change our perspective. Now everyone is trying to be an influencer and at the same time we all refuse to accept the fact that we are influencers. There is some form of circus and joke there because it started with a negative connotation when it was first used. And it comes from being used that way and being an influencer has its own benefits. It’s been a struggle and as a content creator, the biggest hurdle you have is redefining and reinventing yourself every month because that’s how quickly trends change. So being able to mold yourself through all that chaos is extremely difficult. Every job has a challenge and I try to reinvent myself every day. And I hope I’m fine. When I started, influencer was a term that few people knew. But seeing how far we’ve come makes me feel good.

Do you think people’s mentality is changing towards influencers? If you look during the pandemic, there’s been a big boom of influencers replacing models.

Influencers have taken the world by storm. Now everyone wants to be one or at least try to be one. The journey is not easy. But it’s definitely a trial career to try. Unlike other professions, you can just wake up and say today I’m going to try being an influencer. There is not much investment in the career and you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Before the pandemic we weren’t taken so seriously, now I feel like with the growth of the industry it’s hard to ignore influencers. All brands want influencers and some of them have grown bigger than celebrities at this point. I think the shift has definitely happened and people are now open to being an influencer and letting their kids be an influencer. It’s been taken a bit more seriously as a career option and it’s no longer a hobby it was associated with. As a fellow creator, I’m extremely proud to see the rise of the influencer industry.

We want people to know that we’re not just fooling around with our phone cameras and thankfully we’re getting recognition now. And we bring smiles to people’s faces and especially during the pandemic, it was such a difficult time. I remember doing content literally every day during the pandemic. Some viewers told me that your video made me smile and was rewarding enough to keep going.

You told me one day, Sophie, it’s me, the high school girl who used to daydream. How did Sophie’s journey change and what caused this change?

I used to identify with Sophie as a character when I was in school. She used to dream all day and do these weird scenarios. I remember when my teacher in the class used to read Sophie’s story, it was a funny thing. I remember being exactly the same when I was in school and dreaming about all kinds of things. So now I think I’m living this dream of Sophie that I imagined and I’m not dreaming anymore. I wake up to so many people loving me and I wake up to messages and comments. I think Sophie’s life has turned 180 degrees for the good. Life has fewer struggles now, I would say.

Your perspective on mental health issues.

The sanity stuff is always there because life is unpredictable. But now people’s mentality towards mental health has changed. Now we can cry together and go to therapy together. I had mental health issues at the time when I started my career as an influencer, but at that time I was unaware of it. But now I am aware of it and I know how to work on it. But overall, life has definitely transformed and become easier.

How has body shaming affected you?

I suffered a lot of bullying at school. My relatives and my family did not spare me either. I had stopped dreaming and stopped having ambitions for some time. I felt so small in my body. I felt like I couldn’t do anything in life because of my looks. Now, I am good in my body and I own it. I even talk about it and that’s fine.It’s bodies and it’s supposed to be in different shapes and it’s totally okay not to listen to the bullies who make fun of your appearance.
