Why modelling when you could have settled in for a more stable permanent career?
- The word modelling evokes the perception of “life of glamour”, but I feel it is a very challenging and influential field and not everyone is fortunate enough to make a mark. I took up this field with a view to make a difference in whatever way I can and prove that this is a very responsible career option as well.
Tell me about your first assignment. If any, how did it happen? What was the experience like?
- My first assignment was an advertisement for Help Age India. The ad was about an old guard of a housing society, who takes care of everyone. So, I being a responsible, empathetic youngster surprises him with a cake on his birthday. I felt so connected with that ad that I realized how important it is for us to love someone of our grandparent’s age. Respecting and loving elders is a thing which is taught to all of us since childhood irrespective of our region, caste or creed. Also, all that love and attention the old people crave from their near and dear ones should be given to them by such little acts of kindness.
What do you feel makes you a good model? Your face? Your body? Your attitude? As opposed to others?
- Attitude is a little thing that can make a big difference. Our attitude can change course of every situation. So I feel my attitude is my biggest strength that makes me a good model and different from others.
