Dr. Sejal Jaiswal - Things Went Ahead I Won This Miss Nagpur and in 2015 I Won Miss Maharashtra (Model/Physiotherapist from Nagpur, India)


I then did the reality show with MTV dating in the dark. I did two music videos after that then after completing my physiotherapy, I moved out. I am working for all sorts of productions and trying my best here.

1. Tell us about your upbringing, background and journey.

I am working as a model and an actress. 

As far as my upbringing and background is concerned, I was born in Nagpur. As a child I never thought that I will become a model but I always had an inclination towards Bollywood and movies which used to excite me a lot.

I'd say that the things happened for me gradually. 

If I talk about my family, I come from a simple family but they are very supportive of all my decisions. Infact, they have always been there for me from my modelling days and in decision of moving out. Although, they were very clear that I had to complete my education. So I completed my physiotherapy from V.S.P.M’s Nagpur, Lata Mangeshkar College and a few other hospitals. 

I had a pretty usual background like others, but I always wanted to do something different and that is how I decided I would choose this field.

2. How did you start and when did you decide to be a model?

Well, it happened when I was in physiotherapy, a friend of mine suggested that I should participate in a small contest. And as destiny would have planned it, I actually unexpectedly won that contest. 

I happened to perform in front of the likes of Anil Kapoor and Tushaar Kapoor. 

While I was there, some photographers spotted me and offered me to get my portfolio done. I then collaborated through my portfolios and sold my pictures.

I think in 2013, my pictures were noticed by a model in Nagpur. And it was then that I bagged my first shoot in 2013 itself. It was for a drinking water brand and my hoardings were everywhere. 

I would say that my modelling career is 50 percent due to my fate and 50 percent my hard work.

Things then went ahead and I won Miss Nagpur and in 2015 I won miss Maharashtra. Then within a short span of time, I was onboarded for some designers and E-commerce websites. 

I then did a reality show with MTV - "Dating in the Dark." I also did two music videos after that. 

However, while all of this was happening, I went on to complete my physiotherapy.

Now, I am working for all sorts of production houses and trying to do my best in Mumbai now.

3. What do you enjoy more Physiotherapy or modelling?

I actually enjoy both the things, but as you know that now I am completely focused on my modelling and acting career. 

Actually, I love both & I can’t pick one.

4. What have been the biggest challenges you faced in this industry?

Things have been great for me because I am getting work easily. 

But the biggest challenge for me was moving to Mumbai, a new city. This does remain my biggest challenge till date. Moving here and working as a model is a wonderful opportunity for me & I am grateful for it.

5. What does your typical day look like?

So if I am working, my typical day is all about my work. If I am shooting then doesn’t matter if I am waking up at 4:30 am in the morning or if I am waking up at 6.30 am or 9 am, because it totally depends on the call times for shoots.

On the days that I am shooting, I just wake up and prepare for my shoot before I get to the set. I shoot for the entire day on most days. When I come back at home, I prefer to relax. 

If I am not shooting, then I am not a very early riser. But I still try to like to get up by 9 am, then after that I enjoy my breakfast. 

It is pretty usual for me to go through some scripts and to keep giving auditions.

Other days, I just workout and come back. I like meeting up my friends. It pretty much depends on my routine & on my work. My days are very dyanamic.

6. Which is your favorite movie or show?

Forest Camp is my favourite movie. It’s a Hollywood movie and it is one of my favorite movies. Talking about shows I am not really into shows, I don’t watch shows, instead I love watching movies.

7. What is your success mantra?

I believe in being consistent. I feel success comes to those who are consistent.

Hard work and fate is okay, but consistency is something that will definitely bring you success. I believe in being consistent and not giving up ever.

8. Which is your favourite dessert and what makes you appreciate it?

I am not a big fan of desserts but I love Chocolates. But if I had to pick one, I would say that chocolate truffle is my favourite.
