To catch a viewer’s attention there should be something different from the previous season. So, what is the USP of the show this time? “Besides celebrity judges, this time there would be mentors too. Models Diandara Sores and Gauhar Khan will guide the contestants about the nuances of Modeling Moreover, unlike the previous season, this time the contestants are shooting for actual projects, that will give them more experience about Modeling as a career,” says Sheetal.

The show is coming up with a new panel of judges. Fashion designers Rahul Khanna and Rohit Gandhi, fitness expert Yasmin Haz, photographer Nisha Kutty and actor Upen Patel, will test the contestants focusing on different aspects of modeling.

Speaking about the show and the contestants, Yasmin, who helped Kareena Kapoor get a size zero, says, “This time we are looking for someone who can make an impression on the viewers as well as the judges. She should have all the qualities to carry herself well. She should know how to walk with balance and speak with confidence.”

Photographer Nisha Kutty feels that in Modeling posing for a shoot is the most important thing. “A model who poses confidently in front of the camera is the most sought after. Their potential, height and looks all add up to it,” says Nisha.

Talking about the fitness regimen, Yasmin says, “Most of the girls slouch, so we are focusing more on their posture. We have included circuit training, boot camping and pilates training to make them fit. Similarly, we have also given them diet schedules. Moreover, to boost their morale, many interactive sessions will be organised to clear their doubts.”

Talking about the shooting sessions, Nisha says, “Earlier the contestants were informed about their shoots in advance, but this time, to check their natural look, surprise-shooting sessions too will be organised. Besides bikini shots, shots with male partners are also being organised to verify their level of confidence and the way they carry themselves in different situations.”

So it seems, the show has become tough for the contestants. The focus is not just on physical fitness or looks, it will also lay emphasis on all the aspects of modeling.
