Falak Shah, 19, from Srinagar, has always dreamed of becoming a model. Although she encountered obstacles, she overcame them and convinced her parents to pursue her modeling career.
She said that as a Kashmiri, she wanted to promote ethnic products and inspire others to step out of their comfort zone.
In June 2021, Falak started her career as a model and has collaborated with some of the Kashmiri brands Schenpann, Sara Sehar, Farewell, Cashmere Crafts and many more.
“I was very fascinated with modeling since childhood,” Falak told Rising Kashmir.
“I started my career as a cosmetologist and then moved into modeling. Being a Kashmiri girl, I prefer to start from here just so I can influence others too.
“My first photo shoot as a model was with Cashmere Crafts and my experience was very good,” she added.
Falak aims to do ethnic modeling only as she said it was the best and most enthusiastic way for her to present things.
The Srinagar teenager also worked with Rapkid Arafat in the song “Yar Tera” performed by Ariyan Bhat.
After that she also worked with Arpan Singh in the song ‘Diljaniya’. She is also featured in the upcoming web series “ASAR” written and directed by Shoaib Shah Films.
In addition to modeling and working as a cosmetologist, she also manages to devote time to her studies.
On local talent, she said, “In Kashmir there are lots of talented people but sometimes we are hesitant to step out of our area. The problems will always be there, but you have to learn to overcome them and move on.
“It is difficult for some, especially in a place like Kashmir, to accept modeling as their preferred career option. But if someone is committed and pursues their dream with conviction, all obstacles seem small,” he said. -she adds.
