How did your career start?
It all started when I was having a conversation with one of my friends from this industry. He said, “You’ve got a very good height and physique so why don’t you try modeling?”. So, he referred me to his photographer friend, Noor Khan, and asked me to get my portfolio done. I was excited but at the same time not so confident. And nervously got my first shoot done from Noor Khan. That’s how I started my career in this field.
What are the main modeling jobs you have done so far?
There have been many in the recent times, like a shoot and show for Streax Pro (hair brand). I did walk for Dehradun Fashion Week and soon after that, I got shoot proposals from Flipkart, Amazon, eBay, Paytm etc. Another recent achievement was walking for Siddartha Tytler in Delhi Times Lifestyle Week. I have also got featured in the TMM magazine which was the best moment till date.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Always work hard and stay focused on what you want to do. Be Confident, and have patience. You won’t get all things you want, when you need them, they come when you are least expecting it. Try to reach out to a good and trustable mentor, because many people are here to exploit you. So just try to mingle with people who are in the industry for the love of it. Only they deserve to be called your contacts. Always stay humble
