1. First tell me how are you going nowadays after starting new venture – vogue culture?
Being a part of entertainment industry for over 8 years now i have seen a lot of talented people succeed and also a lot of talented ones not getting the work they deserved. To achieve success it’s not only the talent what matters but also its important to know the in and outs of what you are working.
Hence, we started Vogue Culture with the aim of giving the right direction and guidance to every passionate person entering the field of art. Though we have recently started with vogue culture but our team has been working in the field of film, fashion and advertising for over 7 years now.
We are all excited about our new venture and to see new talents come in and learn and make their dreams come true.
2. You are choreographer , show director , mentor but what’s your favorite task among all this ?
Well, this is quite difficult to answer as I love my work.
I have been choreographing dances since I was 15 years of age. Dance is my passion it’s a stress buster and I can express myself through dance. On the other hand mentoring and fashion show direction both, very unexpectedly came across my way when I was in the last year of my college. I did a show just because I wanted some pocket money, but later I developed interest in it and today I love educating aspiring models and actors and see them succeed in their career. Today i have groomed more than 250 models out of which more that 50% are successfully working in the entertainment industry. I feel really proud of them and I feel blessed too that I am a part of their success journey. The love and respect i get from them is beyond everything.
So, to conclude I love all three of my jobs. It’s like 3 kids of one mother, you can’t say who’s your favorite.
3. Who inspired you to get into mentorship and entrepreneurship ? How long it took to take this drastic change around your routine?
I come from a business background family, so even as a child i never thought of working for somebody. I knew that that whatever field i choose i would become an entrepreneur. I decided to pursue education in fashion designing in my school days. I always dreamt of having my own label where my friends wished to work for a designer. My mentor Vineet Khatri, always said one thing, “You Have To Think Anyway, Then Why Not Big?” as I said earlier that fashion show direction and mentoring were two surprises on my way and I enjoy doing it. And through all this journey what kept me motivated and inspired was my mother. Who never doubted me or what I dreamt for. She has always been on my side, for all the decisions I made she taught me to take a decision and make it right. Her support and positivity has made it all look easy for me all these years. The credit for my success goes to her.
4. Every journey begins with baby steps , we are excited to know about your courses and response for the first batch
As I first said that we started vogue culture with the aim of giving the right direction and guidance to every passionate person entering the field of art. We are here to educate every passionate person for the same. We teach you the techniques of modeling and acting. Also we help our students to clear their doubts and become more confident.
I am glad that we a have a tremendous response since we have started this.
I am all excited to meet our first batch students.
5. What was the most challenging show you directed ever as a fashion choreographer ?
Every show is challenging as there are expectations from our audiences of something new every time. But for me the most challenging show was in 2017. It was a kids fashion show for the brand shoppers stop in seasons mall. I had to groom and choreograph a ramp show for almost 300 kids yet keeping their innocence alive.
Indeed it was a successful show. Kids and their parents were happy. And at the end what gives you pleasure is to see happy faces around. That’s why I love my work, I give smiles on people’s faces.
6. There are lot of misconceptions about pageant and modeling world. Would you like to clear few of them?
Sure! There are many misconceptions about the whole industry. I don’t deny to the fact that there are bad people and bad things in the industry. But aren’t these things in other industries too? I feel this is everywhere, just the things in our industry are more open to the common public and hence this industry is the most talked about.
I don’t say that these are right, they aren’t, at all. Talented people should get the work they deserve. And I have always taught my students to focus on their work rather than focusing on the negative things around and surely their hard work will pay off one day. I personally have came across people Offering wrong things against work and so are few of my students and colleagues. But at the end its our choice of what path we should choose.
I always tell my students’ parents to support their children and not put too much of pressure. There is a right time for everything and it will come their way with hard work and passion. But the pressure of not achieving goals might lead the teenagers to take shortcuts. Instead let them take time to understand and learn what they are doing. Hard work and honest work lasts longer.
7. What’s your vision for next few years , and what do you want to convey fellow artists , passionpreneurs and our readers before concluding this conversation and don’t forget to share social media details.
One should definitely have goals in their lives. My goal for next few years is the progress of Vogue Culture. As we have recently started the institute we need to give it more attention so it can flourish well.
It was my dream to start such institute where we can produce different kinds of talents. And in next few years I would definitely want Vogue Culture to flourish not only in Pune but also around Maharashtra and in India someday.
I would also like to tell the readers that we educate ourselves so we can get good placements and salaries. Today entertainment industry offers the most highest paying jobs. Then why not take the right education for it? Just posing in front of camera using filter or just by delivering few dialogues doesn’t make u a model or an actor. It is way beyond that. I would urge everyone to take education before entering this field too before you start working so you can get better result and a sustainable career.
