During my college days, I participated in many modelling contests also took up my first project for Tata Motors. After my graduation, I took a job in IT as a Software Architect but soon I realised modelling, ramp, Shoots excited me much more than a 9 to 5 desk job, therefore I quit my job and now working a Freelancer Model.
TNV: Why modelling when you could have settled in for a more stable permanent career?
DD: Because I believe a dream with passion is worth risking a stable career, That’s why I left my job as a Software Architect in Metric Stream Ltd. as very soon staring of my stable career I realised very well that this is not meant for me. Rather Modelling, Acting and theatre exited me to the core, so I decided to quit my stable job and make it big in the Showbiz. Tell me about your first assignment. if any How did it happen? What was the experience like (make this answer as personal as possible) I had plans for getting into the Industry after completing my Bachelors of Tech. in IT by God had other plans for me I got to know about an audition for the well Know Tata Motors and next I was waiting for my audition with other 300 guys, after the audition I was not at all expecting a call from them , but the same evening phone rings and I got to know I have been selected I did the Tvc which aired all over the country, therefore I believe One should never fear failure, rather fear not trying.

TNV: What are your views on ‘Save Girl Child’ campaign?
DD: Save the Girl Child is an awareness campaign to save the girl Child in INDIA by Ensuring their safety as well as to stop crime against Girlchild. Each one of us should take the initiative to save the girl child. We have to educate people that Girls are equally sometimes more important as Boys in the society to maintain social equilibrium to educate we should give awareness and campaign through mass media, Volunteering with an NGO would be a good start. We all can lend some time to the cause of India’s Girls, Also as a part of NGO’s we can ensure that there are adequate support and facilities. NGO’s like Save the Children are working closely with governments ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ campaign via massive awareness and large-scale female welfare service across districts. This can ensure that a girl child has access to life, education and opportunities instead of being just a household worker.
