True to the core
Blessed with smouldering looks, a great body and personality, Nitigya Singh is a head turner. He has been on the covers of many international magazines and walked the ramp for many fashion shows. He has also endorsed a few well-known brands in India. The charmer takes time off his busy schedule to talk to WOW. Excerpts:
How would you introduce Nitigya Singh to the world?
One in a billion people who does what he loves and always pushes himself to get better every day.
How do you start your day?
I don’t really plan how I start my day unless I am shooting the next day. Just like every day is different so is every start to it. But let’s say by drinking a bottle of water.
Three things that the world doesn’t know about Nitigya …
I have never studied in Nepal.
I am very disciplined and organised.
I am adventurous and sporty.
What does being a model mean to you?
Being a model is more than photographs and ramp walks. Not every shoot is the same and not every show has the similar kind of mood. When you become a model, you become an icon. People look up to you, admire you, hate you, love you and follow you. It is really important to understand that when you have the limelight on you, you make a statement and you can make a difference. It’s powerful.
Other than modelling what are your plans?
Nothing so far, I am just going with the flow and learning new things. I know that when the time is right, life will have something ready.
Is there anyone in the industry that you consider a role model?
There is always someone who we look up to but none that I know from the industry. I have always looked up to my parents. For me, they have always been my inspiration.
You cannot live without…
Studying in a boarding school all my life I believe I am flexible and can adapt to new things very easily. But there are few things without which life would be meaningless like cleanliness, music, gym and good food.
What are you currently busy with?
Shoots, shoots and more shoots.
