Family Karma's Monica Vaswani is considered the perfect Indian girl by her community

Monica is an aspiring Bollywood choreographer and is considered the perfect Indian girl by the community she lives in. Because of this, she feels pressured to get married and start a family. According to her bio on Bravo's official website,

"She’s ready to take her relationship with Rish to the next level, but a growing rumor among her friends threatens their future together. Monica faces hurdles head on, including making amends with a friend in the circle."

"During my time as Miss India Virgin Islands, I served as an ambassador for the South Asian community working to preserve and display my culture and heritage. I worked closely with different charitable causes like Sunil's Home Orphanage and Paws 4 You to increase awareness and donations."

She was also a representative for the Miss India Worldwide pageant. Monica added that because of this, she got to meet multiple global leaders like the former President of Suriname, Dési Bouterse, Ivanka Trump, Miss Florida 2012, and the Indian Ambassador to Suriname.

Monica added,

"During my time in South America I was able to network with other young female ambassadors from around the world and attend different success workshops with Mr. Raj Suri."

According to TV Over Mind, the Family Karma star appreciates Bollywood the most, and her favorite actor is Ayushmann Khurrana. In an interview with BollySpice, she shared,

"He is so good! And he is so cute! Him as an artist, he just has a way of just fitting into the role. He gets cast in such different films, every movie that I watch of him, I love!"
