Nia: Ya, ofcourse, big time. The mentality of people when they say I don’t give a damn what people think is the time you think the most what people think of you.If they like you or hate you , it’s the strongest vibes you get from the people.I try to send positive and warm vibes to other people. I always make sure that people like me.

Nia: All the people I fought with, I have never gotten in touch with them and whatever have been the reason, once apart – always apart.
Rangmunch: How many hours do you spend on the internet?
Nia: I am always on the internet. The moment I get over with my shot, I would go on my FB and check my pictures that my fans have posted.
Rangmunch: Do you think you have changed after becoming an actor?
Nia: No not at all. I think I have grown as a person. I have much more confidence in myself than before. But as a person I am still the same.
