Mona: Reaching for the sky
A regular on the Paris ramp, Mona wants to make it big in Bollywood.india Updated: Feb 18, 2006 20:15 IST
For her, the best part of being a model is to be able to meet lots of people everyday. New to the city and to the profession too, Moni Kangana says she wants to walk international runways.
Two years ago, while studying Political Science in Delhi, modelling was one opportunity Mona could not have missed. It landed her in Paris doing shows for the Metropolitan. Her association with the fashion industry in Paris grew stronger with her on and off visits for ramp shows like Haute Couture and Paris Fashion Week.
Cut to December 2005, and assignments started pouring in for Mona. Still shoots for Garden Vareli, Tanishq, Lee and Sony Ericsson phone was followed by come catalogue shoots and fashion shows for almost every designer.
Shifted base to Mumbai recently, commercial cinema is not her area of interest. She would like to try out art films though. “It is too early to think about acting. Also, I do not have the typical Bollywood looks,” she explains.
