1. Tell us more about your background and journey.

I was just scrolling through my Facebook and I came across a modelling competition which was going to be held in Gurugram, I thought of giving it a shot and discussed it with my parents. 

I was really not expecting that I would be the runner up of that Competition. There were nearly around 25000+ guys who took part in the show and I happened to be the runner up. So after that, many phone calls for daily shoots and ads started coming through. I am happy with what I am doing.

2. Did you ever think of being a model?

No, it was just spontaneous when I became the runner up of the modelling competition. I am really thankful to my parents and the organizers of the competition who gave me this opportunity to compete.

3. How can one approach their career and have the confidence and belief to become a model?

I believe as a minor, you need to first convince your parents because ultimately they are your guide. After that, when you get the support of your loved ones and you have the passion to do something, your confidence automatically builds up through hard work and repetitiveness. And then it's all on destiny.

4. If not this, what would you be doing?

If not this, I would have tried  a lot of things like any sport because I am active and very sporty or maybe dancing, acting or comedy because I have always been great in these extracurricular activities.

5. For a complete outsider with inroads, what advice would you like to give?

To be honest, I would love to tell the newcomers that there is a massive scope in modelling so if you have the support of your loved ones and family members then you can go far and do can do fantastic in this industry.

6. What does your typical day look like?

So my day starts at 5:30 in the morning with gymming, then around 8, I will have my breakfast and by 9, I usually approach to the studio. I an home usually by 11:30 at night, have my dinner and goes to bed after a hectic day.

7. Which is your favourite book and why?

My all-time favourite book is Goosebumps because it has a very great story and concept of twists and turns. Going by its name, It will literally give you goosebumps.
