Modeling and acting are arts that sometimes lead to undiscovered paths and unknown ways. It is something that might give you the spark you always wanted in life. This is so true for Minakshi Jaiswal, a model, and an actress who believes in never giving up and exploring life. She is a person beautiful inside out, with elegance and charm in her personality. As her beauty and fitness mantra is entirely different, she uses natural toners to bring that extra charm to her beautiful face. In an exclusive interview with Tycoon magazines, Minakshi Jaiswal, the brand ambassador of Tara Jewelers and the lead actress of Telugu movie Dhadi, reveals some of the enigmas from her life.
Q: What was your first big break in the industry?
My first big break in the industry is my Telugu movie Dhadi. I have also signed a Hindi movie, titled “Dil Mein Utarkar Dekho” but the project has been delayed due to the pandemic. So, this could be another big opportunity for me. My first music video, “Mukammal” is coming soon, and I am super excited about it.
Q: If you weren’t a model, what would you want to do?
If I weren’t a model, I would like to be an officer in the Police Department. I had always wanted to experience that life in khaki serving the people and solving all the crimes and mysteries to keep everything conventional for the public.
Q: When you are not busy modeling, what are some of your favorite things to do?
I always find joy in small things in life. So whenever I get time from the hectic schedule and shootings, I dance, listen to some good music, and sing. My favorite singers are Emerick and Justin. I also love traveling.
Q: Could you describe your daily routine when you do castings?
I wake up early in the morning, the crack of dawn peeping in through the window tells me that it’s time to start the day with some yoga. Then I go for breakfast and then a hectic plan for the day awaits which involves the ongoing projects. In the evening, when I get free from the shooting and projects, I go to the gym.
Q: What have been your favorite modeling & acting assignments so far?
I have got some good projects and I love the work I am doing. But my favorite modeling assignment is Tara Jewellers. This is so close to my heart because it was due to this that I saw my big hoardings and billboards all across the city.
Q: Which 3 words do your friends use to describe you?
Innocent, Emotional, and Straightforward.
Q: What is your favorite healthy snack?
My favorite snack is Idli. I love salad with loads of cucumber, carrots, capsicum, and sprouts. And orange juice is always a blessing to my taste buds.
Q: Share your fitness Mantra.
Every morning I open my eyes, the very first thing I do is to drink a glass of warm water with some lemon juice in it. This not only detoxifies my body but also refreshes me early in the morning and keeps me fit & active all along the day.
Q: How do you deal with all the traveling required to be a model & Actress?
When you are an actress, it becomes important to take care of your skin so I always carry sunscreen, rose toner, and a pomegranate toner with me. Other than that I stay hydrated and drink water regularly while traveling and I believe that works well.
Q: When it comes to your experience in the industry as far as diversity and you being able to present yourself as you are, what kind of changes do you feel like you have seen in the past 2 years?
The past two years have changed a lot. Due to the pandemic, we have moved a lot behind. But I believe that now as things are getting towards normality so we must accept the things and should work on what is yet to come rather than what has passed. And I generally see some people keep on ignoring the opportunities that they get, so for that part, I would say that what is starting must be acknowledged and respected. You never know where that opportunity can lead you.
Q: DO you have any advice for those who want to start modeling and acting? Where can they follow you?
For those who want to build a career in modeling and acting, all I would say is NEVER GIVE UP. This is life, anything can happen at any instant. So, stay positive and keep searching. Never underestimate yourself, keep faith in your capabilities and the paths to success will unfold. My fans can follow me on my Instagram page, FB page, and Twitter.
