Standing over 5’9 inches tall, the beautiful Shrishtti Das immediately attracts spotlight with her tall and lanky personality. Hailing from Pune, this 22 year old beauty is a professional tennis player turned model and now has her eyes firmly set on runway modeling and pageants.
“I have always been attracted towards fashion and beauty pageants and used to watch a lot of fashion and pageant shows. The pandemic actually got me thinking about modeling as a career seriously. Beauty pageants are also something that I always wanted to try as well and that is how I decided to give it a shot,” says Shrishtti.
At a time when Shrishtti was wondering where to start, her friend suggested Ritika Ramtri’s renowned academy Tiara. ” I joined Ritika maam’s one month program at Tiara. She taught us everything from make up to posing to answering questions. Ritika maam groomed me very well. I was not very confident about myself but she guided me very well. She still keeps in touch and sends us videos and keeps recommending.”
Shrishtti who is currently pursing MBA is looking at shifting her base to Mumbai soon to pursue a full time career in modelling and try her luck in pageants. “Miss India is something I have my eyes set on. I am also looking at runway modeling as it is something that also excites me.”
When it comes to inspiration, Shrishtti looks up at Manushi Chillar and internationally it is Gigi Hadid who is her fashion inspiration.
Acting is also something Shrishtti would like to try her hand at in future. “I am attracted to the craft of acting as well. I always practise dialogues of popular movies in front of the mirror at home. Deepika Padukone is my favourite,” says Shrishtti before signing off.
