Donning the judges hat for the first time on India’s Next Top Model, Model and Bollywood Fashion Diva, Malaika Arora said, “Fashion is all about being free-spirited and expressing oneself without any inhibitions. A supermodel is someone who effortlessly carries off the latest and most bizarre trends and rocks them like a diva, with utmost grace. As a presenter in the third season of India’s Next Top Model I will be expecting the girls to go that extra mile and do whatever it takes to be the next supermodel. Fashion will be getting tough with every passing day for the contestants. I definitely will be looking at the ease with which the girls carry themselves.”
Making his debut on India’s Next Top Model as a co-judge, model, actor and fitness enthusiast Milind Soman said, “The Indian modeling industry has evolved drastically ever since its inception. What amazes me is that we are almost at par with the international modeling industry. Many of our models and supermodels have set the international runways ablaze. At India’s Next Top Model we are looking for a face who will be a perfect combination of poise and personality. Someone who should be able to express herself effortlessly and brave the tough world of fashion with a smile.”
Ace photographer and the co-judge Dabboo Ratnani said, “I have been questioned by many on what does real beauty look like. It is a very subjective and complicated question and as a photographer I do feel that you can find beauty in the simplest of things. One is not beautiful or pretty simply because of cosmetics or the size. It is all about being yourself. In India’s Next Top Model, as a judge I have always looked at going beyond what meets the eye. This year, as fashion gets tough, the audience will be amazed to see the potential that these girls possess.”
Excited to mentor contestants, style icon Anusha Dandekar said, “The third season is going to be the most exciting one yet. The competition is strong, the girls are passionate and you never know which way the episode will take you because even though the challenges, photo shoots and ramp walks are going to be tough, the girls are pushing to be tougher! As a mentor, this is going to be my proudest season yet because the transformations will be incredible! Forget just keeping it stylish, I’m going to be making sure they keep it top model at all times! Can’t wait to get the season started!”
Known for his keen eye for detail, Mr. Gaba, said, “It’s important for a model to be herself. Not just models, anybody who wants to project the best versions of themselves, it is essential to just be unique, be you. You can’t afford to be a copycat, otherwise there’s nothing unique that you’ll be able to bring on board for prospective brands, designers etc. You have to put your best foot forward, be it on the ramp, a commercial shoot or editorial. If you can do that, then you are a supermodel for me. I am glad to be back on India’s Next Top Model.”
Get ready to join in on all the action as Fashion gets tough in the third season of India’s Next Top Model, every Saturday at 7:00 PM only on MTV.
