Kingfisher Calendar Hunt model turned actor Lasini gets candid as she takes us through her exciting career.

Lasini is a model who has appeared in ads and has walked the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week.

Now awaiting the release of her debut film in Tamil Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal in which she has a co-starring role.

In a candid conversation, Lasini talks to us about her first modelling assigment, wearing a bikini for the first time and what it feels to bag an acting role. Excerpts from the interview:

Tell us a little about yourself. How did you get into modelling?

I am a pretty chilled out person. I love to eat and eat to live.

As a child model I was very fat. But I would always feel that good looking people have an easy life, hence I wanted to be a part of that category.

I started modelling when I was in college and now the journey continues.

What does Lasini mean?

It''s the name of a goddess.

Your impression of modelling after your first stint...

My first stint as such was when I joined the 'I Am She' pageant. I had no clue what to do and what not to do. But I slowly started to take in as much as I could within the training time that I spent with the team there.

How does it feel to land a movie role?

It still feels like a dream. The director and his team are wonderful and have supported me immensely.

When you were wearing a bikini for the first time, what were the thoughts racing in your head?

I was very nervous. I didn't think I could pull it off. But once I got on that stage it kind of felt freeing in a strange way. It sure makes one shed a lot of their inhibitions.

What is the biggest challenge when you move from modelling to acting?

I look forward to things that challenge me so I guess I am still discovering what those challenges are.

Do you have plans to foray into Bollywood as well?

If the opportunity knocks, I would want to answer it.

What are you like when the makeup is erased and the strobe lights are switched off?

Well, except when I am working, I am sans makeup and in my sweat pants, most of the time.

I like spending time watching movies, finding new places to eat and chilling with my friends.

The biggest myth about the glamour industry that isn't true

That it's easy. It's all fun and games, and looking pretty is all that matters.

The truth is that one has to be focused and determined. There are too many deterrents and distractions.

I always believe that if it were that easy, none of us would want it that bad. So work hard and give it your all.

Lasini in five years will be...

Hopefully happy doing what she loves best!

Your ideal movie role

It's funny when I say this, but I want to be able to do a female Dabangg someday. I loved what Salman did.

A movie you wish you had a part in

3 Idiots. I loved each and every second of that movie. So inspiring yet so entertaining.

Your dream date

Along the beach by the sunset with my loved one.
