Pranati Rai Prakash knew she wanted to be part of the glam world.
With no godfather to lean on, she made her way slowly but surely, first making it to the finals of Miss India and then winning India's Top Model.
Today, she's a regular on the ramp. And she's testing waters as an actor; she's appeared in Ekta Kapoor's Web series Cartel and movies like Love Aaj Kal and Family Of Thakurganj.
