- How did you become a model?
I started modeling 2 years ago in Mumbai itself after coming to the city for dancing. That time I used to dance and act in a Bollywood musical in Germany and was invited to give a Stage Performance on New Years. Loving India, I decided to stay for the time my visa was valid and got some more assignments during that time, and finally decided to sign up with a modeling agency to become a fulltime model.
- What did you do before you became a model?
I used to perform on stage, but since this wasn't a secure income, I was working as well to finance my passion after finishing school. At times, I had two jobs at a time, plus going for rehearsals in the evenings and doing shows on weekends.
- What is you favourite shoot that you have done and why?
My favourite shoot was doing a main lead in a web-series called, "It's my City", which was produced by Priyanka Chopra. We shot 14 episodes in 10 days. We had days on which we were shooting up to 15h, so I didn't get much of sleep or a day of break at that time, but I loved doing it and I hope we will get a next season to shoot. I loved shooting for it, because it gave me the opportunity to grow more into acting, which was my passion before and is still my goal to reach.
- How did you feel during your first photo shoot?
I don't really remember, but I must have thought something like "I hope I am doing a good job".
- Describe yourself in five words.
Cute; honest; weird; intuitive; hardworking.
- What do you snack on between castings?
I try to eat healthy as much as possible, so I would always carry some fruits, dry fruits or nuts in case I get hungry in between castings.
- What is one makeup product you can’t live without?
Moisturizer. I am using Emolene which hydrates the skin very well.
- How do you keep in shape?
I try to go to gym whenever I am free, but more important for me is to eat healthy.
- Who is your biggest inspiration in the fashion industry?
I wouldn't say I have an inspiration or a role model in the fashion industry, but if I would have to name someone it would be Coco Chanel as she dared to 'free' women to squeeze themselves into tight corsages and heavy dresses and defined a new era and freedom in fashion for women.
- What do your family and friends think about you being a model?
I feel very lucky and grateful that I have a family that would always motivate me to go for my dreams and is supporting me in everything that I am doing. When it comes to my friends, I choose really carefully who is in my closer circle, and someone who wouldn't support me or couldn’t uplift me during tough times, wouldn't be someone I would want around for long.
- Why did you choose to come model in Mumbai?
I only chose to come to Mumbai, modeling happened for me over here.
- What are your model goals?
I am a hard working person and I always would give my best on any job and I want to gain a certain name and respect in this industry as model as well as as an actor.
- What has been the best advice you have received as a model?
The best advice I ever got is to always believe in yourself, being patient and that there is a time for everything in life. Especially as models we have to accept that there are times when we might not get a lot of work, but then there will be times again where we will work like crazy. 100%. For me the most important thing is to know what I want in life and see the bigger picture, so I don't get caught up in little things.
