"While I was in junior college, there was a professor of mine, and she was also a photojournalist, while she was a professor of English literature. She requested I do this one fashion feature for her and I just did it for her. I never went to the conventional root of having a portfolio and going and looking for a job or having an agent or an agency, I was just a student doing this one feature for a professor. But she was the one who told everybody about this girl called Aishwarya, and I had calls pouring in. I was virtually invited into the industry with very good assignments."
