We all make mistakes Nishka; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a model; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I remember asking my BFF to step out of the dance group because she wasn't working hard on her footwork whereas other girls were doing it so much better. We wanted to get through the audition for our school dance competition and did not want poor dancers in the group. But I realized that she was very hurt by the decision, and I think I shouldn't have asked her to leave but should have left it to the judges to decide.
Nishka , when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I believe in giving my best to all my clients since they have chosen me and given me an opportunity. Firstly I wouldn't commit myself to too many projects and secondly based on capacity and client priority I will deliver my excellent services to them.
Please tell us Nishka, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a model?
I recently had a very bad situation with one of my clients. I was very sick with a bad tummy & vomiting just the day before my shoot. I was not at all in the condition to get up and do my shoot. But since the date was finalized, and everything was set & organized along with all the extras scheduled to work with me the next day. I simply pushed myself somehow managed to reach the location the next day. My parents explained the Director & Producer of my condition, they both asked me if I could still do the scenes.I told them fiercely that yes I shall be able to do it. Truly speaking my body had given up, I had fever and tummy pain my mum was weeping standing in one corner, and I was doing my scenes. My shoot started at 9 am and finished at 6 pm, I took I hour sleep in the vanity van during the lunch break but finally completed my shoot. I received a lot of appreciation and love from their production team. I am a very committed person, and I can understand the need of the time :-)
Nishka, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I had an audition come through from my acting agent for real father-daughter duo for a tv commercial. My dad very clearly turned it down on his side as he did not have modelling / acting experience. He was very stubborn on his decision and did not want to accompany me for the audition. But finally, I convinced him with my acting skills :-)
Nishka, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want with share to everyone. What is it and why?
The proudest moment was when I was in my third round of the Disney Premiere Show audition. It was the final round, and Director asked the finalist to act upon a script provided by them. I was very confident, and I did my best scene, and my name was called out in the winner's list who had to travel to Orlando to perform.
Nishka, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I am always very creative and love doing things on my own. I have made my rap songs, I have written my own scripts and recorded it in different English accents, and people have loved and enjoyed my work.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a model?
