In mid 2003, without anymore ado, Pia auditioned for ace choreographer Marc Robinson and the same year she waltzed up the runway at the Lakme India Fashion Week.

Extremely sensitive to the deplorable plight of animals she vehemently refutes to buy or even wear any kind of fur and leather. An active volunteer at People for Ethical Treatment for Animals (PETA), she firmly believes that if the buying stops, the killing will too!
