I started my acting career in Assam, Northeast from where I belong and I was working in Delhi, Mumbai, and now in many international platforms. My work has been seen and I am always open to networking, international lobbying, and traveling. That made it easier and I am a powerful manifester. Projects have come to me effortless and I am working on it. I have clarity in my vision.”

Not only films but also Music video projects as I am a Latin bachata dancer. Being a Latin bachata dancer, its became part of my lifestyle and culture now.

How was your experience working with painter Govind Kanhai?
Kristna: “It was a lovely experience to work with Govind Kanhai, his brother, and his team. The set was created so beautifully and the memory of the studio where we were working is still clear in my mind. The concept is on Fine Art Nude Painting and the idea was so beautiful with every look, I felt like I am an earthly Goddess in poetry which is a fantasy realm. Now when I see myself in his painting, I think I am in the painting, alive forever and made immortal. Those portraits have a soul which I feel is me expressing my feminine sensuality and grace through his paintings. I feel glad and honored they choose me for modeling for their painting and I could play the role well that they narrated and wanted from me. I know I am a good subject of art as my mind is liberated and my spirit is free flowing. My mind is free from any inhibition and I feel oneness with the cosmos and nature. Kanhai and his brother have painted portraits of the first prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru, Former Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and former Deputy Prime Minister of India Lal Krishna Advani.”
