She feels that an actor has to appear completely at ease and tension free while performing a role in front of the camera. It is because she describes the camera as her mother, where nothing escapes her eye about the actor as a child. Hence Sumann tries to stay as natural as she can be, So that she can be in touch with true emotions and bring out an inner level of refined expressions. This fitness freak, who is also a national-level athlete, stays in shape with a strict schedule of daily yoga, gym and core strengthening. Dance is another thing that gets her going and is a maestro in the Indian classical dance form of kathak and also a trained classical singer in her childhood days. Travelling, driving, surfing and singing are what she unwinds too. But amidst stardom and fame, Sumann always puts her family first, mom being closest to her heart, sister close to her soul and dad being her inner strength.
