- Ramesh J. Chauhan, her father, is the chairperson of Bisleri International, which is one of the most popular brands of bottled water; however, in an interview, she revealed that her father let her fail on purpose in a few of her school exams, she said,
"Because he believes that’s the best way that I am going to learn. What you learn from mistakes makes more impact on you.”
She shares a special bond with her father. She taught her how to ride a bicycle and how to swim. In an interview, she revealed that her father does not go out of India much because he is vegetarian.
One time he visited her when she was studying in London, he taught her how to cook dal. Tennis, Hollywood classics made in the 1950 and 1960s, especially, films starring Audrey Hepburn, and South Indian & fried food are some of their common interests.
In an interview, when she was asked about what kind of relationship she had with her father while growing up, she said,
"One thing I appreciate about my dad is he always spoke to me as an adult, even when I was five years old. A lot of Indian parents may call someone like me ‘spoilt;’ my dad just says, ‘She has brains. She’s not afraid to vocalise what she’s thinking.’ If I tell him something that doesn’t make sense, he will tell me, ‘Sorry, your argument doesn’t make any sense. Come back to me with a more intelligent one.’ So he’s always pushing me to do more and be more.”
She is a travel enthusiast. In 2010, she took a break from work and went on a world tour; she travelled to many countries during her tour including Costa Rica, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, and France.

In 2022, Ramesh J. Chauhan made his decision to sell the company to Tata Consumer Products. In an interview, he revealed why he chose to sell the company to Tata Group and said,
"Tata Group will nurture and take care of it even better, although selling Bisleri was still a painful decision. I like the Tata culture of values and integrity and hence made up my mind despite the aggression shown by other interested buyers. It was not just the value I am getting for it, I was more anxious to find a home that would look after it as I did. This is a business I have built with passion and it is now run by equally passionate employees.”
