Ask Natasha Suri, a Miss India World title holder. Somehow films didn’t click for her. She began with modelling and after a stint in films, she is back to modelling, “I really wanted to do films. But things didn’t take off and the two films that I signed never saw the light of day. So here I am,” Natasha said.

  Natasha who was in the City for an event said that she began her career on the ramp, dabbled with the film industry for a bit but returned to the ramp again. “I think my strength lies in modelling. I look perfect on the ramp but I think my contemporary looks don’t really suit the big screen,” Natasha told Metrolife.

Movies and modelling aside, this tall, husky beauty has had her share of joy and sorrow  in a reality show she’s participated in. Natasha was one of the contestants in the reality show Zor Ka Jhatka. “I love water and I am in absolute awe of Shah Rukh Khan but I learnt a bitter lesson when I was in the show,” confessed Natasha. Reality shows are not as rosy as they’re made out to be, Natasha feels. “You’ve got to be made of steel if you have to participate in one. There’s tremendous pressure to perform. While adventure through water is all good, you really get left behind if you don’t rise up to a certain level. I’ve broken down on the sets and had my share of pain,” she said and added, “but these shows make you a stronger person.”

Talking about shows like Bigg Boss Natasha said, “There’s so much backbiting and by the end of it you think you have lost your face. You have to have the ability to snap back and be undisturbed by what’s happening around you,” she advised.           

For now, Natasha is content with the ramp and she’s one of the most sought-after models for print shoots.
