Thank you for inviting me for the Exclusive Interview and making me a part of such a beautiful evening.

Q: How did you come into showbiz industry?
Ans: I was 20, without a clue what kind of career I wanted to pursue, when my mom mentioned modeling.At first, I was very hesitant just because I was afraid of being judged about my photos.

She pushed me to get over my fear and go to a few open calls. That is when I met with Joy Films, the acting and modeling Agency in JLT Dubai. They took my Test shoot and Selected me as a main Model for Etisalat (TOP DUBAI TELECOM BRAND)

Q: Say something about your Modeling journey?
Ans: I have shot for some great brands but a featured role in Tiger Zinda Hai (Bollywood Movie) was the most special and it is always going to be something that would remind me of how things can happen organically and when you least expect it in the fashion industry. The other milestone in my work was when I become the face of Emirates culture for FiFa World Cup.
