I always wanted to be in the fashion industry. When I was pursuing history hons., I realized this is not what I wanted to do. Then I started taking part in various pageants, people criticized me for that but I was adamant to my decisions and see after facing so much criticism, I am running my own fashion and acting institute Indian school of Modelling and Fashion. Moreover, I always believe in the fact that “what is yours, will always be yours no matter what”.

My style statement is anything comfortable and i believe fashion & comfort go hand in hand.

I think fan following is not the appropriate word in my case as I haven’t achieved anything that big yet but yes it feels so good when people admire you and your work. I feel overwhelmed when people praise me for what I am doing. And criticism is also very important as this gives you a boost to work harder.

Dance and my mom. As dancing is into my blood and my mom is my life.
