8 things we learned from Neha Dhupia’s Facebook Live session with ELLE

We caught up with actor Neha Dhupia at a recent preview of designer Natasha J’s fall-winter ’16 collection – teamed beautifully with temple jewellery from Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri, might we add. The actor was dressed in her latest line, Bespoke Garden. “I was in Jaipur and Udaipur a couple of months ago and I was inspired by the Mughal flowers and the architecture. Soon after I was in Spain, at the Alcázar of Seville, and the lawns were just so beautiful I had to translate them into the line,” says the designer. Talking about Neha Dhupia, her muse, she added: “I’d like to steal her attitude, the way she carries an outfit is really cool. Whatever she wears, whether it’s a kurta or a sari, she has a great attitude.” Yep, that she does. Here are some highlights from our rapid-fire with the actor:  

She’d never be caught dead in…
“Bell bottoms; as harsh as it may sound, they are just not meant for my body!”

She’d really like to meet…
“Cate Blanchett; I am huge fan of her,” affirmed Dhupia.

She’d never trade anything for…
“My phone; this is a really easy one. Even if I was offered a night with Matt Damon, I’d still keep my phone.”

You probably don’t know this about her but…
“I was born with a silver streak. A lot of people say, ‘Baal colour karna bhool gaye.’ But no, I was born this way.” 

The last thing she Googled was…
“Treks around Kathmandu. I am going to Nepal next week, so I was wondering if there were any treks on.”  

She’d love to swap lives with…
“My niece because that would make me 30 years younger. And also because whatever she asks for, she gets. She doesn’t have to work hard for it.” 

Her dream squad would feature…
“Nigella Lawson, because she’s a really good cook, and a really funny guy who could make me laugh all day. And Natasha J because she would dress me up all the time, so I’d look good, eat great food and laugh all the time!” 

What she really, really wants right now is…
“My flip flops; my heels are killing me.” 

We feel your pain, Neha. We do.
