Here are the things i realised when i looked back at certain incidents of my life..
In my very early days of modeling, probably just two months old, i had a financial crisis and i asked a friend to help me out to get some modeling assignments as he had many contacts. He just said, "sorry shiv but you're not good looking enough." After i progressed a bit, i did a bold shoot just to analyse my body type and the pictures came out cool. I was proud of it. Just a few months after doing many other shoots, i came to know that a school friend's father died. We haven't talked in years but when paid her my consoling visit, she said, "hey, mom is out for her job and she'll be back in an hour.. Can we go out before she comes?" I gave her a weird look as her mother was very friendly, to which she said, "actually, we've seen ur modeling pictures so she's doesn't hold a good image of you in her mind"
I was even fired in the middle of catalogue shoot and i was crying on the inside, out of embarrassment.
Moral of the story, people will always shit out on you but u don't have to take it. I pat my back to have come so far on this journey. .
