You are already in the field of social media. Are you planning to take this forward in the entertainment industry as well?
Yes, I am, as a model, I have got published in several magazines and want to take it ahead in every way possible in the entertainment industry as well.
What are the things that make you look for something different and out of the box every day?
I get inspired by people everyday people in my life. Since now I am experienced in modeling I want to put my imagination in the photoshoots that no one have thought of yet. Apart from modeling, I am trying to act as a director and stylist of the shoot as well.
‘The journey of a celebrity is always celebrated’- What is your view on this statement?
‘The journey of a celebrity is always celebrated’ this statement goes to every person on this earth. Everyone is a celebrity for someone in someone’s life. I celebrate the success of my people that I’ve in life and they celebrate my success
Share some of your experiences during the initial stages of modeling.
In initial stages, there are now and then a blank stage. You don’t know what to do and where to start. I realize socialize and communication skills are a must in this field. This was the time where I believed in trying harder and keep on trying. Eventually, by being associated with top fashion brands like Zara, Gucci and more for 6 years I learned tons of things. Like how to style, how the clothes are made, designing ideas, about fashion shows, etc. I believe every step we take ahead is an initial stage and staying fearless is a plus.
What are the positivities that keep pinching you every day to create something good inside you and how do you deliver the same logically and creatively?
If I am planning on the next shoot than I make sure it will be better than the previous one. I get the best ideas while I am driving. Yes true, weird as it sounds. Also, I always request people to give feedback on my work. Experienced people’s feedback does matters to me. I believe if I have a right photographer I can bring my imagination in reality. Currently, I have concepts which more than just fashion
How do you feel when you walk the ramp and during photo shoots? Tell us something about your first project.
First time walking the ramp was an amazing feeling. I felt like I’m going on the right path. I did a shoot first time with my friend Rafael Trinh. It was a shower shoot and I was kind of shy but I pushed myself through it.
How do you see yourself as a professional and as a person?
Professionally I listen to whoever reaches out to me. Like to know their ideas and mindset. Whereas, as a person, I prefer to be down to earth as much as I can.
Create a fashion theme of your choice and depict it as a model.
A fashion theme I already have of my choice which I’ve thought long ago a high-end trench coat or glittery outfit with combat boots in a slum open area. The purpose behind this is to influence people that people coming out of slum are something too. They can make their name and have a voice.
Do you feel liberal by your profession? What is your vision of India and how do you want to see it evolving for better?
I do feel liberal in modeling just as in every day. I want our country to stay in our culture and follow the traditions but with a modern attitude with new thinking. Human rights are women rights, education. The mentality of people has to change.
What message are you willing to convey to the coming generation of models?
To the coming generation, I always say be yourself. Your fashion is your fashion. Get out of your comfort zone. Take notes from your supportive mates and most of all, be supportive of one another. You should never stop working on yourself. Just keep creating the content.
What new change would you like to add in the entertainment industry?
The new change would be being real, be you. Make the least use of this thing in reality “fake it till you make it”
According to you which generation is inclined towards you the most?
It’s not the generation who is inclined but it’s the people. The people with better thinking are inclined to me the most. I have a lot of respect for the people from ’60s’70s or even older generation contributes to change the society. Because at that time the thinking was different. And now for them to accept the new mindset must need courage.
It always seems impossible until it’s done’- What is your take on this statement?
I am a very strong believer of “keep trying till you succeed” nothing else I can say on top of that
How can you describe your mission and excitement in one line?
“Mission impossible is possible”
