It will surely be exciting to share my moments brought to life with the Lumia 535. I am also looking forward to challenge my fans to better these selfies. There is so much to capture across the country, from the historic India Gate and Taj Mahal to evergreen popular haunts such as Leopold café and Koshy’s. I am excited to see how these landmarks are brought to life by the youth of the country”, she said.
