    Kiara’ was choosen by me. We were brainstorming with lots of names and I remembered watching Anjaana Anjaani, and the way Priyanka Chopra introduces her character: ‘Hi, I am Kiara.’ I loved the way she said it. I had loved it so much that I thought if I ever have a daughter, I would name her Kiara. So when I wanted a name, I used it for myself.”
