Archana Vadnerkar was preparing for a Chartered Account course while in college when she gave wings to her childhood dream of modelling. ''My family was and is very supportive of my choice of profession as long as I complete my education. I'm glad I took the step to enter this industry. This is one career where sky is the limit! It only gets better, when you get better. I am thankful for the opportunities I have gotten till date and look forward to more such wonderful one's.
I work hard on maintaining myself. I eat healthy, keep myself hydrated and workout every day. I love weight training and practice yoga. I also love going for long walks! That said, I am grateful for the quality assignments that I have worked on. My most memorable ones are my first ramp show for designer Vikram Phadnis; it was special in every way. Among commercials, the ones that stand out are for Dove Shampoo, Garnier and Matrix. It's fun to act. I loved the mini series I shot for Channel V, directed by Kabir Sadanand. Comedy Theatre with Paritosh Painter and his team was an amazing experience. I was both nervous and thrilled to perform live in front of a huge audience!! So, modelling and acting has been good for me but if it doesn't work out someday I have completed MBA; I hold a Diploma in Advance Software Technology and would love to complete my Chartered Accountancy. I've done it half way — it's on my to-do list and that's all I can think of. From experience, the advice I would like to share with models entering the industry is to stay focused, humble and grounded. Learn, polish and groom yourself!''
