Talking about revolutions in the industry, India now has it's first ever male-model sufferring from autism and we think this is beautiful.
The 19-year old Delhi boy, Pranav Bakhshi is a fashion enthusiast and a big fan of Jon Kortajarena, a Spanish supermodel. He has already walked for a couple of raging hi9gh-strret labels and intends to strut for the international label someday.
A generic love for camera, Pranav has always been ecstatic about clicking photos. A fitness enthusiast himself, the newest sensation on the block loves following the grind and a look into his instagram profile will confirm it. The modelling agency that signed him, Ninja Model Management, found his looks and expressions very appealing and fit for a good model. And rightly so, after his portfolio shoot, many clients started putting in requests for him. Way to go boy, you got this!
Even after being aware of his condition, Pranav stops at nothing when it comes to his passion. His bio read, 'Autism is my superpower', and we think it's beautiful.
Proud of her son's achievements, Pranav's mother, Anupama Bakhshi sheds light on his journey. “We were in a mall when suddenly he came up to me showing a billboard. He expressed his desire to model and I could only agree with his decision. Pranav is very well aware that he has autism and is fighting it on a day to day basic. But he is a strong man and I really want the other kids with autism to take inspiration from him and believe in themselves,” says his mother.
More power to you Pranav!
