Indian Models

Standing tall at 5'11" with soft wavy hair and a charming smile, Kolkata-based Shonal Rawat is unlike the average model but her allure is hard to shake off. The former Miss India and first runners-up of Miss Asia Pacific 2003—with campaigns for Nescafe, Shalimar Paints and MTV Most Wanted and runway shows for key designers on her resume—takes success in her languid stride.

"I thank God for his blessings each morning," she told me during a chat. "It is easy to get carried away by the fame and glamour so being grounded to reality helps when the initial adulation fades. A model's lifestyle may appear glamorous but it requires hard work, discipline, patience of a sage and travelling on short notice! I have cut down on late nights, sleep for eight hours to replenish energy whenever I have that luxury, stick to a workout regime and spend quality time with family and close friends to reduce stress."
