Interview Reet Sahu talks about her passion for modelling
She started off by walking the ramp as a college student. Although she was pursuing a course in retail and merchandise management, Reet Sahu knew modelling was her true calling. Little surprise that she went on to participate in several shows and pageants even after she got married.
“My parents were very keen that I first complete my education before I pursued a career in modelling. However, even as a student I got a lot of opportunities to walk the ramp and went on to do several print ads and catalogue shoots for designers after I graduated,” says the model.
Even as her career picked up, Reet got married in 2008. “Both my husband and in-laws were supportive of my passion for modelling. I participated in the Gladrags Mrs India pageant in 2011. I was one of the 16 finalists. After that I participated in the Mrs India International pageant in May 2012,” she says. Accompanied by her mother-in-law to the pageant, Reet went on to become the first runner-up.
Now Reet is the brand ambassador for Mrs India International in the country and is also busy with charity events. “I am very passionate about working towards educating the girl child and am also working with Ushor, an NGO that works with children with special needs,” she says.
Reet is also busy doing fashion shows and would like to set up her own image consulting firm in future. What about films, we ask, “If something good comes up, then why not?” she says.
