Shefali Jariwala is one of prettiest names of the Indian entertainment industry. She took the industry by storm when she came with the ‘Kaanta Laga’ song in 2002 and ever since then, there’s been no looking back for her. In an exclusive interview with us she talks to us on her weekend plans and much more!
What is your plan for the weekend?
To host a dance party for myself! I am going to be home turning up the volume and dancing all nights on some crazy Bollywood songs.
What are three things you are most grateful for this Friday?
Good health, my well-being, my mental state I am very relaxed and happy. I am grateful that I have a home full of love and we are safe from this pandemic and doing all things we love.
What song are you enjoying the week?
Bollywood mash-ups, party songs of the previous season. I am in a major dancing mood so I am going to be listening to a lot of Badshah, Honey Singh and Neha Kakkar and cool filmy songs!
What’s your weekend morning routine?
Its very simple! It starts with some exercising and then some home resposibilites that I have. I set my house in order and make sure my pantry is full and little bit of cleaning and organizing.
What does weekend self-care look like for you?Resting and relaxing! Anything that helps me relax. It could be a massage or a pedicure or just having a long shower depending on my mood. A lot of me me time is necessary, maybe reading my book or having wine while watching a rom-com. Anything that makes me happy from within!
What’s your must-have beauty product?
Vitamin C serum or a base – cream. Vitamin C really works wonders for my skins and brings a beautiful glow on my face and this is one product I swear by and can never live without!
What facemask do you absolutely love?
Since I have a little oily skin is the one I make with avacado, cucumber and honey. Mix it all together and my skin looks beautiful, clear, fresh and radiant!
TV show you are currently enjoying?
Big Boss 14! It just started and I am following it more because I participated in the last season and I want to watch it to know what it is like as an audience. I have never seen it before and I am really enjoying watching it.
Are you a Tea or Coffee Person?
Absolutely a coffee person. You can get me a good cup of coffee anytime of the day! I am very fond of coffee and I just love my coffee!
What’s your favourite comfort food?
Chinese! I love desi-chinese and another thing is waffle. I know waffle is a breakfast food but for me I can eat waffles at any time of the day!
What is the funniest thing you have read about yourself on the internet?
There are a lot of funny things but apparently I died because of the tattoo I made during Kaanta Lagga. It was not a tattoo, it was body paint art and I am very much alive. So sorry to all those people that thought I am dead.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Proving my partner wrong about something. If not that then would be another scoop of ice cream or another slice of cake.
What’s your spirit animal?
A butterfly because it is a symbol of transformation and development and that’s how I am. I am very adaptable to changes and I cope with it with a lot of ease and grace.
Where are you going on vacation when the pandemic is over?
I am waiting! I am a beach and ocean person. I love the sand in my feet and salty air. So I will head off to a beach holiday destination whenever I can. It could be Maldives, Seychelles or even Miami depending on the situation next year!
What advice do you have for any kid who looks up to you?
Follow your dreams!! I know it sounds cliche but you don’t know how many people are pressured into lives they do not want. So if its your dream to be a doctor, a dancer or a sportsperson then just be it. Just make sure you are really good at doing it and give it your best. Dreams take a lot of work and the truth is often they are a labour of your love. Sometimes you don’t even get paid for following your dreams for a long time but it’s okay follow them anyway!
