A multifaceted young actor, who has learnt fashion designing, choreography, and modelling, is now keen on trying her luck in the Tollywood with her debut film Prema Geema Janta Nai .

Priyanka Chopra’s cousin, Barbie Handa, is all set to hit the silver screen soon, pairing up with another debutant hero Sreerama Chandra, the Indian Idol fame.

With 15 commercials to her credit, she says that her first love will be working for ad-films. “My first commercial for Dabur Amla hair-oil was shot with Didi . I have also done other advertisements like Nokia,, apart from a few solo ads,” she said. Barbie is all in awe of her sister.

“Priyanka is my source of inspiration and will remain to be for a lifetime. Her success motivated me to get into films. And I am grateful to her for showing me the path of my choice.”

Language is no barrier for the actor as long as the script of the movie is impressive. Staying in the City of Destiny for more than 15 days for her debut film shoot, she appreciates people of the city and Tollywood actors.

“It is overwhelming to connect with the Telugu audience, as they are quite warm. Moreover, I enjoy the fast beats of the Tollywood numbers. I am very fond of Allu Arjun, I think he is a terrific dancer.” The actor’s favourite hobby is dancing. She does Zumba, freestyle, hip-hop, and a combination of all.

“Exercise helps you stay in shape. Everyday I wake up in the morning and enjoy my dance session. You need to maintain yourself and be aware of what’s happening around in order to keep pace with the competition,” she concluded.
