Awhile back we featured Shruti Viswan in the Top 9 Indian Models on Instagram. Back then she told us ‘I am gender fluid and I associate myself as the two facets of being both feminine and masculine, which is why I have an undercut. I am a passionate being with big ideas and small pleasures.‘ Shruti. It’s our pleasure to have her back for an exclusive. Clink on the pictures and follow her on Instagram.
What do people not know about Indian women?
Zero tolerance to bull shit, haha
What’s the best thing to do in Mumbai that the tourists don’t know about?
Catch a nice play or an underground gig.
Your favourite fashion designer? Which designer or brand would you like to work with?
I adore the Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. His Japanese Avante garde aesthetic is one of its own kind. Some day I really wish that our paths cross.
Your work out routine and motivation?
My work out routine focuses both on mental and physical fitness, so I start with yoga in the morning followed by meditation and then towards the evening I go for a run and a few other hybrid fitness techniques. Iam quite self motivated, I think it is something that I have inherited from my dad.
How often do you get asked out on social media and in real life?
Well, I don’t really focus on how many times I get asked out either on virtual or real life, what I enjoy is how genuinely is someone interested in me as a person.
How does a professional photographer get the best out of you?
I thoroughly enjoy what I do. I like getting involved in the whole creative process of a shoot. A photographer can get the best out of my by having crystal clarity about why he wants to do a certain shoot and how he wants to evolve the creativity as it takes its course.
Your party trick?
Be yourself. Dance your heart out.
Your advice to aspiring models?
Don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t deserve what you want and be absolutely in love with what you do.
Ever been in a fight?
err… I didn’t read that quite well 😉
