Lily’s thoughts and expectation about this show
Inevitably, it’s a lot of pressure. It’s also a huge honour, and I’m focusing on the latter part,” said Singh, who will be 31 on Sept. 26. “I’m focusing on how exciting this business is and how much it could mean, rather than focusing on, ‘Oh my God. What will people think, and what if this messes up?’ So I’m just having fun while I do it and I think that’s going to get the best result, ultimately.”
