Behind the Spotlight

plain ritz


“Labels” can be limiting. So it’s like this . . . I am a 20-something year old girl, who was born in Calcutta, brought up in Singapore and lived there for over 20 years. I studied business at the University of London & I’m also a post-graduate in communications. Initially, I started my career in PR & Marketing in Singapore and I was in the corporate field for almost 2 years before venturing out. Yes, currently I am based in Mumbai. 

What brought me to Mumbai was my love for theatre & dance. In fact, if you follow me on Instagram & Twitter, you will know how I still spend a considerable amount of time auditioning for roles. I have anchored for a number of digital & TV shows, I’ve done a few plays, quite a number of commercials, music videos and even cameos on TV soaps (hell ya!)..During the last one year, I presented and produced content for a luxury & lifestyle show on Bloomberg TV. It was a great experience as I got a chance to mingle with a lot of personalities from the lifestyle, fashion, food & luxury industry. I also write features for a magazine & host a hell of a lot of social, corporate & lifestyle events. 

I started Spotlight because I always wanted an outlet to express my thoughts; about random things and daily musings. It’s been five years and Spotlight has become an integral part of who I am. I have collaborated with well-known brands and talented people. I have tried to put everything I like (films, fashion, beauty) … all under the spotlight.  The encouraging response from my readers has made me even more eager to document everything I possibly can. 

I hope you enjoy reading my blog. Feel free to click around, leave a comment or send me an email. I promise to do my best to respond as soon as I can.
