Actress model Madhu Sneha judges NMIMS Euphoria’s fashion show ‘Oomph!!!’
Urges students to get inspired by Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan’s success saga
Actress, model, DJ, Pantaloons Femina Miss Fashionista 2012 and Kingfisher Calendar finalist Madhu Sneha judged Oomph!!!, the fashion show at management institution NMIMS’ annual fest ‘Euphoria 2014’ and urged students to get inspired by Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan’s success saga. Madhu Sneha, who will soon be seen walking the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week, announced SNDT (Juhu) College as the winner of the Euphoria 2014 Fashion Show from amongst participating management institutions including close runners up Welingkar’s and hosts NMIMS amongst others.
A great and unabashed fan of Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan, the multi-facetted Madhu Sneha, who just participated in a Theatre Lab workshop by Neeraj Kabi (‘Ship of Thesus’ fame), encouraged the students from different institutions to get inspired by the indefatigable Shah Rukh Khan and his quest for super success. “Congratulations to SNDT students for being first amongst equals. The electrifying atmosphere and high octane energy at NMIMS Euphoria Oomph!!! takes me back to the crazy and pure energy that I used to have during my college days. I would always ask the male model to be Shah Rukh Khan while I would play the part of Madhuri Dixit or Juhi Chawla or Kajol. Not being conscious of any limitations or negativity is what has brought me so far all the way from Kolkata to Mumbai. Looking back, I am happy that I have been able to transform my ambition, audacity and admiration for successful personalities into a success story of my own. I loved attending Oomph fashion show as the show and the students were very ‘filmi’. I encourage them to seek inspiration from the success saga of Shah Rukh Khan who believed in himself and reached the pinnacle of stardom.”
The Tyra Banks of India, Madhu Sneha, who is an anchor on Food Food channel, was also on the jury of Sydenham College’s Simsree annual fest Simerations 2013 along with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s favourite choreographer Mudassar Khan (Dabangg, Bodyguard, Bol Bachchan and Boss amongst others) and Dancing Curve’s Itika and Raunak. Model, actor Madhu Sneha Upadhyay is a young cooking enthusiast who steals time between shoots to experiment with cooking. Young, tech savvy, well travelled with a high food quotient, she in every way represents the new generation of home cooks, with less time on their hands and yet the will to never settle for the ordinary especially when it comes to their culinary palate. She also did the Renault Duster ad recently.
This mesmerizing model was born in Howrah (near Kolkata) and was a studious conservative middle class family geek till she participated in the Bhawanipur College Fest and her entire life changed! The scintillating Sneha Upadhyay is the first runner up of the Kingfisher Calendar Girl 2012 hunt in association with NDTV Good Times and chosen in the Top 3 after a long hunt for a talent race among contestants from all across India. The girl, who had not even worn track pants is now scorching the ramps across India with what ace lensman Atul Kasbekar calls is the ‘perfect body’. And renowned Bollywood designer Manish Malhotra chose only this Kolkata girl for his shows. The diva now aims to model her career a la Trya Banks and wants to replicate the global icon’s success in India.
Sneha started off with an audition as a ‘Cat Woman’ and the model with ‘Rhythm in her Body’ had leading fashion choreographers drooling over the Indian equivalent of Hollywood star Halle Berry! In fact, Sushma Puri from Elite Model Managemetn chased her all the way upto the Kolkata Fashion week in order to sign her on. And ace designer Nandita Thirani chose her as the lucky opening mascot for showcasing her Lakme Fashion Week collections. And then followed a string of fashion designer fans including Manish Malhotra (he only chose Sneha from Kolkata she closed for him in the Kolkata Fashion Week), Jaya Misra and Shantanu-Nikhil amongst others.
An ambitious young fresh face, Sneha quit her marketing job in the fast-paced city of Mumbai to change her career course to the glamorous world of fashion. A true believer in herself, Sneha swears that soon the world will know and believe in her! She is the most confident about “Myself as a whole” and her asset is her “confidence that has got her quite a lot at a young age. She reads quite a lot and is a linguist with English (literature graduate with honours), Hindi, Urdu and Bengali. And she claims that she is a born dancer. She has dabbled in copywriting and thinks of writing scripts during her leisure time. She has also tutored the contestants of the Indian Princess contest organized by the Mumbai-based Atharva Group. She enjoyed the task of grooming and tutoring young raw contestants and elevating their self-esteem, self-confidence and self-belief.
As in sync with her Kolkata mindset, Sneha dreams of doing meaningful globally crossover films in the mould of actress such as Aparna Sen, Smita Patil and Madhuri Dixit amongst others. And Sneha Upadhyay is very clear that she is here to be and carve a niche for herself while leaving her footprints in the sands of time. ..
