Interview with Fashion Model Anjusha Bhattacharyya
How does it feel when you are on the ramp?
It comes naturally to me & I am the happiest when I am walking the ramp.
Out of all the clothes you wore, what was your favorite piece you particularly liked during shoot?
I am most comfortable when I am wearing a bikini or a bodysuit.I think every girl should love their body and respect it. It is the only thing that will be with you till the end.
What is fashion for you personally?
I always say be comfortable & confident in whatever you wear.Also you don’t have to look like a model 24 hours.sometimes you will see me all dolled up while sometime you will see me dress down wearing a simple tee and maybe a boyfriend pant with my hair up in a bun without a single touch of makeup.its all about your comfort.
What is the most fun part of modelling?
The amount of different outfits I get to wear almost everyday !
What advice would you give to young women readers of singonline who want to follow a similar career path as you & look up to you?
It’s really nice when young girls say they look up to me and even if I can teach them a thing or two from my experience this will all be worth it. Just be true to yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do what you dream to. Believe in yourself.
Don’t abuse your body and even if you are really scared or nervous at times, never show it & always put the brave face on.
Was being a model your ultimate goal?
It was never my ultimate goal. I do a lot of other things too but yes, it was definitely one of the things that I always wanted to do.
What other things do you do?
Due to modelling I hardly get time, but yes I do take up styling projects as & when i get time. I am also an activist animal worker and run a shelter called OASIS Open Arms For Strays In Stress.I am currently working on my own range of swimwear line which should come out within end of this year. Also I am helping the family with our upcoming camping venture.So ya I have my hands full at the moment.And in my spare time I love doing yoga,gardening & travelling.
