Model: Saksham Ghai
"I am 100% Punjabi (Indian) so we're usually business men."
Tell us about yourself: Why do you want to work as a model? Why are you interested in modelling as a career?
In high school, was always the different guy. The way I behaved, dressed and so forth. Girls took notice and asked if I modeled. Now, I am 100% Punjabi (Indian) so we're usually business men. I gave it a try and I promise you to this date I don't know what about it I love but I love it. Perhaps it's the fact I get to meet new beautiful people everyday and the fact I get to travel to new locations and help out the poor and needy with my time & donations. I meditate and do yoga majority of the day so that's another thing about me.
How important is modelling education: Have you attended modelling courses? What related courses or studies have you taken?
It is extremely important. Did attend Barbizon and learned many things such as ramp walk, posing for the camera, being still & calm backstage & etc.
What do you think makes someone “fit” to be a model?
Believe being a good human being is what makes a great model. Modeling should be as much about inner beauty as it is about outer beauty. :)
What are your goals as a model? How do you see yourself progressing in this field?
First started off by a simple photo shoot at a local photo studio. Now, thanks to God am signed with 8 agents worldwide. 3 in San Francisco, 3 in Los Angeles, 1 in Brazil & 1 in Europe (Germany, Austria & Switzerland) - A friend of mine was sweet enough to forward me Mr. India America 2015 Pageant's website. Did sign up & thanks to God won Mr. India Galaxy 2015 title along with Most Photogenic Face 2015 & People Choice's Award 2015 with 300,000+ votes. This made me the youngest Mr. India & the 1st Mr. India in over 23 years (700+ contestants) to have won 3 titles.
How do you communicate with people? Are you patient? Are you friendly? How open are you to clients’ requirements?
People tell me so. People view me as a Superstar but I view myself as a simple human being. I get thousands of messages both personal and public daily and reply to all or as many as I possibly can. Please do view it for yourself if you'd like at, www.facebook.com/ghai18
Do you eat nutritiously? How often do you exercise or go to the gym?
All the time. Do my best to work extremely hard. Exercising 4-5 hours a day. Eating high protein, moderate fat & moderate carb foods.
What is your dream role as a model?
Would love to work for H&M. Have been wearing there clothing as a child.
Do you have any limitations? How do you define your boundaries when choosing to accept a modelling request?
The only limits you have are the ones you set up within your mind or allow others to set up for you. Live by this quote. :) I'm a little crazy (positive sense) - I accept everything that comes my way. Even if I know I have no experience to do it. Go on set with positive belief and the project (coincidently) turns out well. Thank god.
State your availability: Would you travel? Work full-time, part time? Any hours?
Always open to traveling. This is my full time job along with acting.
