Shahrukh Khan is her favourite Bollywood actor and her perfect date will be in “space” she said. When asked if she has invested in cryptocurrency Bitcoin, Sophia said that she was only two years old and therefore too young to hold a bank account.

Hansen called Sophia a mix of artificial intelligence (AI) and character development.
