Surprisingly for a newcomer, she took the failure in her stride. Even as she prepares for her new film Aushima seems nostalgic about her modelling career and her recent foray into acting.
For someone who seems cut out for glamour, Aushima’s family background is a complete antithesis. Her father works for the UN in Bangkok. Her mother is the regional director of a non-profit organisation in Bangkok. Even more surprising, she is former Uttar Pradesh governor and bureaucrat, Romesh Bhandari’s grand-daughter. So, why did she get into showbiz? “I always had a passion for acting,” she says. And there was opposition from her family too. “They didn’t support it at first, but are now my biggest support.”
Aushima’s modelling career started abroad. “I did some assignments in Bangkok. Later, I went to Sydney, to pursue a course in Media Arts and Production where I continued modelling till I returned to India.” In India, her first professional assignment as a model was for a popular soap brand. In 2005, she qualified for the Femina Miss India pageant. Though she did not win it, Aushima liked the experience. She says, “You never know what you are in for. I never went there with any great expectations. I just went in with a smile and came out with one. And I knew it would not help me in my career as an actress as well. But, I got to meet so many new people, and learnt the art of grooming myself.”
