What prompted you to be an entrepreneur?

When I was studying in Mumbai, my aunt who was making some advertisement got me into modelling and there it started as a hobby. In fact my whole life has been a leisure pursuit. I have never planned anything. Then when I came to Delhi, my friend’s father was running an export house and I started modelling for them, and when I realized how much fun and rewarding it was, I started taking more professional assignments. I was not really prone towards academics but was very devoted and hardworking by nature. So I chose modelling as my career which I used to relish and was very committed to it. Later on I felt I could contribute further to the industry, and started as a makeup artist in 1997, when I was expecting my second child. But with complete staunchness, I started bridal makeup later in 2003 with a studio at home.

How did you go about it?
