As the title suggests we have a flamboyant model with us , Priyanka Arora.
Well this model is an 2nd runners up in Miss Gardencity 2013 and had many print shoots for sarees, lehengas, casuals Plus catalogue shoot for samyakk, tvc shoot for Navya Bake House , raiikar tablets etc.
Sipping a coffee, we ask these questions with her.
I got into modelling because I love being in front of camera.when I am shooting,I forget everything else in my life and celebrate each and every moment living my passion.in longer run,I would want to be an actress and I feel modelling will be a stepping stone in my career.
I can never forget my first shoot in my life.I and the photographer, we both were amatuers in fashion photography.but I remember one thing,I did all I could to get the best out of it.and strangely it came out well.what makes that shoot so special to me today is the rawness it had.with passage of time and polishing I have become better but in this process I have lost that charm which my 1st shoot had.I am happy that I have grown as a professional but I cherish the memories.its like the way you miss your childhood after growing up,happily accepting growth as a part of life.
As a child I remember I was crazy about Aishwarya rai bachan,kate winslet.from teenage my role models kept changing and today I get inspired from so many artists from painters,writers,actors etc who are doing such great work in their field.they might not be very famous but they definitely are very inspiring.I can see light in all of them and they all inspire me.
My parents didn’t really want me to do it.my dad was completely against it initially.my mom however believed in me.but honestly its not about what others think about you,its about what you do.I feel its very important for one to know what they are really passionate about and they MUST pursue it.
Size 0 is a stereotype image of a model.I agree its a requirement for runway modelling.I feel a model is a reflection of the product he/she is endorsing and there is a lot of work requirement for non skinny good looking models in print and electronic media.
I want to be an actress.that would be my 1st choice.as a person I am an art lover,anything with art inspires me.and when I do something,I get completely into it. People who are close to me say that I write well,so maybe I can consider being a writer.
Cleansing,toning and moisturizing to have a healthy skin.hair spa and regular hot oil massage for good hair.stay healthy and take care of your body .on an overall love yourself.
8.If a young girl/boy wanted to be a model what would your advice for them be?
Analyze your positive and negatives.work so well on your self,that even your negatives work in your favour.talk to everybody in the industry,listen to them all,but follow what your heart says.most importantly,believe in your passion and yourself.
I don’t aspire to be like anyone else.everyone has their own journey,and I am sure god will give me the best .success is a state of mind where you are happy and content with your body of work.I would call myself successful if I get to do the kind of work I always wanted to do.
I am obsessed with bollywood music and I can’t live without listening to songs everyday. Infact,I can’t shoot well without songs.I kinda live the lyrics and emotions in songs.I love chats,choclates and red wine.(I am a punjabi,food is my weakness..:p)
Vichy cleanser and toner,elizabeth arden night cream.
I am generally dresses up casually in a jeans and t shirt with nice wedges.however I love to dress up elegantly in a gown and saree.
There is so much talent in our country,with change in the pattern of bollywood cinema.I am a big fan of manoj bajpayee,naseeruddin shah,irrfan khan,konkona sen sharma.as a star I think deepika padukone and ranbir kapoor are extremely talented.
My kind of man is someone who respects his woman,her choices and her career.someone who can accept my quirks and correct my mistakes maturely.personally I would want to be with a man who might throw tantrums at his client in office but wouldn’t mind joining me in kitchen on sunday morning.a man who can dine with me in a 5 star but also enjoys roadside panipuri with me.any man can do everything in the world to make a girl fall for him,a real man is someone who can do anything to keep her smiling till her last breath.
