Cute, bubbly yet shy...Karishma Kotak!

[Article for a Fashion Magazine]

International Model Karishma Kotak became the talk of the town when she entered in Bigg Boss house. This lady with a captivating smile has made a way into too many hearts during her stay in Bigg Boss house.  She was born in Patiala and brought up in London. She has been modelling from the age of 16. She got herself onto the Kingfisher Swimsuit calendar in 2005. Later in 2006 she took part in ‘Lakme Fashion Week’. Karishma made her acting debut in 2007 with ‘Shankardada Zindabad’, a Telugu remake of ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’.

She was recently seen in one of the most controversial shows “Bigg Boss”. When asked about her experience in Bigg Boss house, she said “Bigg boss has definitely been one of the most interesting experiences of my life. It is like being in a time capsule, you are in your own world with people you don't know and you have no clue what’s happening in the outside world. I had to stay away from my family. I got to meet so many new people and learned new things. It is like vipasana to an extent, no phone, no watch, no calendar, no TV, no internet, no books, no paper, no pen and constantly being monitored by cameras (laughs). I am glad because I survived there for such a long duration.”

She took up Bigg Boss because she wanted money for her dad’s treatment. As it’s much talked reality show in India so it was a good opportunity for her to grab the eye balls. “Bigg Boss came at a point in my life where I needed this push, and it was also an interesting concept,” she added.

Her dad passed away while she was inside the house. Later she came back again soon. Kotak does not have any regret for not being able to be with her father during his last days. “My dad left a small video message for me. He said he is proud of me and also said that the show must go on. It was my father’s wish, he wanted me to stay strong and continue the show. It was undeniably the toughest part of my life, but I don’t regret because I fulfilled my father’s wish.

When asked about her sense of style, she smiled and said, “My personal sense of style is elegant and quite girly.  Like others she too did so many fashion goof ups and prefers not to talk about it. “Goof ups happen so many times…it’s better to forget them and move on as sometimes they are quite embarrassing.

Everyone has something to treasure, their most prized possession. When asked to the tall and svelte model, she flaunted her Jimmy Choo’s handbag and said, “It’s my most esteemed possession. It’s so beautiful, but it’s so heavy and sometimes difficult to carry. Still I just love it.”

She has a fashion fetish but it's not related to clothes or jewelleries. She actually has a fetish for shoes and keeps on adding to her big pile of existing collection. “I have a fetish for Shoes, shoes and shoes! My mom is so fed up of my shoes but I still buy a new pair every now and then and then sneak them in and pretend that they have been around for a while.”

So does she have any guilty indulgence when it comes to style? “Ya ya!! I love getting my nails done and so I get them done at least once in every ten days. So my guilty indulgence would be manicure and pedicure. I consider it as a real treat for myself.

Rohit Bal, Tarun Tahiliani and Leepakshi Ellawadi are her preferred designers and her favourite shopping destination is London. “I am brought up in London so of course it’s my favourite and most favoured place to shop.

She had already done some movies in south like ‘In Ghost House Inn’, and after her stint in Bigg Boss she is open to do Bollywood also. “As of now, work has been great after Bigg Boss, so I expect some good work. I am planning to be in Mumbai and do more reality shows, modelling. I have been hosting shows before Bigg Boss, so if I might host a show if get an opportunity. I will grab anything good which comes my way,signs off the Gujarati gal who can easily be mistaken as a foreigner.
