Joyride on the ramp
JUST TAKE a walk down the memory lane and remember yesteryear's successful actress Sharmila Tagore and today's Priety Zinta, one thing common in them:their dimpled smile. In the modelling arena you rarely find any model with a dimpled smile. Indrani Das Gupta has one. It seems the model of some of prestigious brands as Airtel, LG, Parachute Oil, Panasonic, Santro, etc., has not left many stones unturned, is walking on the ramp to success.
Born and brought up with all traditional family values in Muscat this Bengali beauty joined DPS, RK Puram for schooling and then graduated with Economics Honours from Miranda House. "Belonging to a family full of engineers, I also decided to continue with my studies and did my Masters in Economics from Jawaharlal Nehru educationists,", says the brand ambassador of Lakme and Allen Solly women's garments ."Modeling is accidental to me. I participated in designer Ashish Soni's fashion show and thereafter there was no looking back," reminsces Indrani who also featured in Euphoria's "Phir Dhoom" famous music video, "Kaise Bhoolegi Mera Naam". Full of humility, she does not rule out the role of luck. "I think my dimpled smile and curly hair proved assets in my success. My hard labour, involvement in the work and the desire of always giving 100 per cent, pays a big dividend for me. One should be ready to learn every aspect of it and never compromise on the quality of work." At a time when many models are turning to the silver screen and trying their luck in Bollywood, what has she to say? "For the time being I am concentrating on my modelling assignments, with offers from Australia and Singapore. Though I have been approached by certain filmmakers, I am waiting for the right time and role." With oodles of innocent charm, this fan of Bade Miyan, Amitabh Bachchan, says that even a role of two seconds with him will be like a dream come true for her.
It seems Indrani, in Delhi for Dwarka's Ratnabhushan Utsav-2003, has been enjoying the smooth joy ride of her modelling career, blissfully!
