Hi! I’m Shraddha Nigam, born in Lucknow but grew up in Hyderabad. I got the best of both the city, and it is so hard to choose where my heart lies. I am an engineer by profession but a model by passion, who aspires to help young women find their confident selves.
Was modeling and acting something you’ve always wanted to do as a child?
When I was 15, I fell in love with the world of modelling. I used to watch modelling shows and imitate ramp walks wearing long heels, tripping most of the times. It was quite fun, besides the bruises.
I guess acting is the next progressive step most of the models take wanting to explore the world of cinema. Personally, I am happy with modelling, but my family and friends call me a drama queen, and it must be because of all the tantrums I throw at them. They find me a perfect fit for it, and I want to put their intuition to action.
How will you describe your fashion style and where do you shop from?
Fashion, for me, is being comfortable in my own skin and having a unique persona. I like experimenting with my clothing, styles and accessories. I always look for things which I can carry confidently and goes with the mood of the place.
I believe in shopping sustainability and creating multiple variations of the same clothing. This makes sure my bank account is not upset and allows me to create new styles. I usually shop from Amazon, Myntra and Forever 21 when they are good offers.
Is there any food or drink you can’t live without?
Even though I love modelling, I never compromised on my eating habits. However, I make sure I get what is required and healthy for my body type. Fried chicken is my favourite, especially when it is made by my mother on a monsoon rainy afternoon. But I do not mind having it daily if my parents can afford. Nevertheless, I do give rest to my taste buds during the festive season and Thursdays.
Yes, I love drinking ‘maa ke haat ke chai’ along with Osmania biscuit. Hyderabadi ke jo hu mere jaan.
Where in the world will you love to travel to if given a choice?
Every place has its own story and memory in itself. If I had the money, I would love to see all the seven wonders of the world along with my parents. This would be my gift to them for all the sacrifices they have made for me.
How do you like to spend your free time?
During my free time, you would see me meditating, going for casual walks and doing yoga. On my cheat days, I binge watch movies, TV shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime. My favourite TV shows are Friends, Money Heist and Vampire Diaries.
Do you believe in any superstition?
I believe that luck favors the brave. I put all the hard work in everything I do and hope for a positive outcome. So far it has worked well in my favour.
What do you not get about guys?
On the contrary, I would say men are easy to understand and emotionally fragile. It takes the right women to churn the best of their man and vice versa. I’ll be lucky to have such a guy in my life.
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Shraddha. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I believe the word sexy is perceived in a negative connotation in our Indian culture. For me, Sexy is an emotion when you see something beautiful and confident. Example: I am sexy!
