The 21-year-old began dancing at the age of four with Bharatanatyam, completing her arangetram at fourteen. She then moved to other forms of dance, regularly taking to Instagram to share videos of the same. Speaking to the pageant officials, Shetty stated that it was her ability to turn her passion for dance into a full-time profession that she took the most pride in.

She further added that, growing up, she most admired her grandmother. “She’s someone with compassion, values, intellect and respect. Her guidance and offerings are what I am today.” Her parents have reportedly also been instrumental in her growth. When asked about her pageant inspirations, she named Miss World 2000 Priyanka Chopra.

“When you look up to a person some of their words get stuck by you. The aspiration value increases, I remember hearing an interview of hers where she stated, ‘Don’t try to squeeze into a glass slipper. Instead, shatter the glass ceiling.’ I have been a fan ever since,” Shetty noted.
