Zoya Afroz walks the ramp as showstopper in B’luru Fashion Week
Celebrated beauty and winner of Femina Miss India Indore 2013 Zoya Afroz graced the ramp at Bangalore Times Fashion Week 2017 as showstopper on the inaugral day itself. She also shared her journey ever since the beauty was formally recognized.
She said that “The journey has been amazing. I don’t think I can ask for anything better than this. My first modelling assignment happened when I was just three years old. This was a great deal because most parents in India prefer to push their kids towards studies rather than any extracurricular activities. But my parents gave me the chance to do both,” says Zoya.
The 23-year-old says that she is grateful for the opportunities that have come her way, and is espeically thrilled to have got to work with graceful actresses, such as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
“There is a lot of hardwork that goes into all this glitz and glamour. With the kind of competition around you today, I it is that much more important for you to prove your talent,” she adds.
If not an actress, was there anything else she had aspired to be? To which Zoya tells us, “There was no plan B. This is what I always wanted to be. I have actually sat down to think about what I would have been if I wasn’t what am I now.
But I swear I do not have anything in my mind. I was a commerce student; my accounts and balance sheet never tallied. I believe one should always try to pursue what they feel they are best at. And I think I have found my calling. So, if I wasn’t an actor I would be a struggling actor wanting to be one,” she signs off.
