Indo-Australian MTV VJ turned actress and singer Anusha Dandekar feels now a day’s Bollywood celebrities have taken over the space of magazine covers and show-stoppers from supermodels.
The actress feels that it is not appropriate to use word ‘decline’ as far as supermodel concept is no more and the supermodel s generation is completely changed.
Anusha told media persons, “Bollywood definitely has taken over the reigns of magazine covers, show stoppers…The supermodel generation has changed and we are not going to lie about it. But why not try and bring it back.”
Miss Dandekar will next be seen as a mentor of her upcoming season two of MTV’s “India ‘s Next Top Model”.
The VJ said that they are trying to groom the best of models on the show without body shaming anyone.
“We want to bring back the cream of the crop. Supermodels have to have height, a certain look. We got a lot of people saying that we shouldn’t be body shaming,” she said.
“Everyone has to understand that there is a prerequisite for every career in your life. You want to be a doctor; you can’t be one without a degree. As a model, it’s the sane thing,” she added.
The show will features actress Lisa Haydon and ace photographer Daboo Ratnani as judges, while Neeraj Gaba will be seen as a mentor, apart from Anusha.
