I’m having a working birthday in Delhi and the celebrations began last night around 11pm where all the other models created a naughty cake for out of all the sweets that were laid out on the buffet table.

Being from Mumbai, the worst-hit city, safety was the the first thing that crossed my mind. The protocol of testing us one week before isolating us in a hotel made us agree to the show. We were excited but also scared of the situation. Digital shows require patience. These shows are shot on moving cameras and there are retakes. So it is a bit more tedious than a normal show. However, it’s great watching the show and looking at the ensembles, up close and personal.”
