Apart from acting what are your passions?

Shobhita: Designing Clothes, Singing and exploring new places.

What genre of movies do you find comfortable in doing?

Shobhita: Romantic

Do you think it’s wise to step out of the comfort zone to try versatility and broaden the bandwidth or perfecting and sticking to one’s genre is a better option?

Shobhita: If you are good at something you should stick to it. If you don’t have a plan, should step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Should always have a goal.

Is it true that you changed your name from Shobhit to Shobhita. What was the reason behind?

Shobhita: Shobhit sounds like a guy’s name so i added ‘A’ to it.

Your movie Ishq Brandy received acclamation from across the country. How was the experience?

What would you prefer in the long run? Living like a star or enjoying life as a commoner away from the limelight?
