How did modelling happen?
I participated in Miss India and it started from there. I started taking interest in styling and fashion.
Your first modelling assignment
I walked for designer Aparna S, who made me a showstopper; I can never forget that experience.
The flip side of being a model
Models in India don't get recognition but people (in the fashion industry) otherwise are very, very nice.
Dos and don'ts for aspiring models
Be yourself and have a personality.
Nowadays modelling is not just about having a pretty face but also about (your) personality.
Also, don't overdo your style.
Your fitness mantra
I have a very disciplined fitness regime. I workout, eat right; I get up early and do exercises.
Your fashion mantra
Be yourself and dress according to your vibe.
