Simone's journey into acting began as a result of her love for always wanting to create something. "Anything that allows me to do that has got my attention!" she said in a 2019 interview with Veylex. "It allows me to be spontaneous and play — I guess it's something I've always wanted to pursue, and didn't think twice about it."
Simone's father shares a passion for music, film, and photography, so naturally, she grew up "always playing Rock 'n' Roll tunes, or Bob Marley, and the TV always had epic movies on, like Kill Bill." She added, "It's a bit ironic, I grew up in a household full of Indian academics, y know, the doctors, the engineers, the accountants - it's pretty cliché! I was never a budding academic, and always thrived in creative fields."
