The BollyWitch is my way of expressing my art of dance and performance. I was inspired to become The BollyWitch from my desire to see South Asian artists represented more in the queer scene. It's important to me to show the world that desi queer art is beautiful and should be platformed. Furthermore, South Asian trans women have so much to offer the art scene and I'm very proud to be able to contribute. Being The BollyWitch also gives me the freedom to express my love of Witchcraft and Magick. As a practicing Witch, I pour my love of all things mystical into my drag, as well as pulling inspiration from my love of horror and the macabre to create sinister, yet beautiful performances that have left audiences captivated.
