Women Fitness India got the wonderful opportunity to join the stunning VJ turned reality TV Star, Benafsha Soonawalla, for a interesting conversation.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You started off as a model and then took up as a VJ on national youth channel, despite being a degree holder in BMS. Walk us through your journey and how you decided to take this unconventional career choice?
Ms. Benafsha Soonawalla:
I was always passionate about every kind of performing art. Dancing, singing, acting, even walking the ramp. I didn’t really know if I’d make that my career but I enjoyed it to the fullest in school, college etc. I would model here and there for the fun of it, but when I was in my 13th grade, I got a call for a reality show called roadies, to go in as a wildcard. All I had to do was send an introduction video and I wasn’t sure about the show since I had exams approaching. I went for it anyway and it turned out to be a really fun experience. I came back and gave my exams and did really well in them. I never let my work get in the middle of my studies, I always did well even if I had to shoot all day and come back and study all night going into the morning. It was all good, and honestly even kind of fun to challenge myself like that. Little did I know that immediately after, mtv would hand me an opportunity to become an official VJ with them. That’s how my journey started. Ever since there has been no looking back, I went on to host several shows on tv, corporate events, did another reality, did a few digital ads, walked in fashion weeks and very recently even started my own YouTube channel. I had to move on from my mtv contract, and they weren’t too happy about it. In this industry, I want to explore as much as I can and hence I had to make the choice but the love is always there. In fact, I have a flight in a few hours to go host an mtv show. Hahah 😀
