‘We need to bring back the con­cept of su­per­mod­els’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

VJ-ac­tor Anusha Dan­dekar (right) feels that to­day Bol­ly­wood celebri­ties have taken over the space of mag­a­zine cov­ers and show-stop­pers from su­per­mod­els.

The ac­tor says that while it is un­fair to use the word “de­cline” as far the con­cept of su­per­model goes, the fact is that the gen­er­a­tion of su­per­mod­els has changed.

“Bol­ly­wood def­i­nitely has taken over the reigns of mag­a­zine cov­ers, show stop­pers. The su­per­model gen­er­a­tion has changed. Why not try and bring it back?” she said.

The VJ will be seen as a men­tor on the up­com­ing re­al­ity fash­ion show.

She said they are try­ing to groom the best of the mod­els on the show with­out bodysham­ing any­one.

“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 same thing,” she added.
