How did modelling started I was in college when Farrokh Chothiadid a candid shoot with me and sent my head shots to Elite Model Management, who signed me up. I did not immediately start modelling as I always wanted to finish my college first, so Elite only booked me for few assignments and once I finished my college modelling became my profession. You love being a model becauseIt’s a good feeling to be recognized, the feeling that I get after giving my best shot and of course the travel. Most of my travel is to places my work takes me and it’s a different city each time. This is exactly why I love what I do.
And the dark side of modelling is…You are always under scrutiny. You have to be ready to be judged at all times.
Fashion For you is. I feel fashion is all about having a right attitude and being grounded at the same time, once you are comfortable in your own skin, you can carry off anything with style. What appeals to you more- Walking on the ramp or posing for print ads? Both have their own appeal. Ramp is more about the adrenaline rush because I know there are many people looking at me and I can not falter. Print is fun and its exciting to see the results once it’s out. Foreign models getting preferences India? Your take Its a trend now, may change in the future.
What keeps you fit? I exercise and have a healthy lifestyle. The truth is I have always been on the smaller side when I was younger; I went through a phase when I desperately tried putting on weight. Today, I can use this to my advantage. I eat everything and more than any of my friends! I workout and used to do yoga. I must confess that I don’t need hard workouts to stay in shape though.
And your beauty secretI follow basic guidelines for a good skin regime — drinking lots of water, getting enough sleep, exercising regularly and eating healthy. I cleanse, tone, and moisturise my skin daily and always make sure to use sunscreen before I step out. One golden rule to cope up with all the pressure, competition in this fieldI always make it a point to give my best shot when I am working. I dont feel any pressure or competition from outside because for me everyone has their own potential and they work according to it.
