Educational background of content creator and entrepreneur, Diipa Buller-Khosla

The South Asian lifestyle influencer, model, activist, and entrepreneur Diipa Buller-Khosla's education began in Chennai, wherein she lived for a year and did her schooling in Udhagamandalam (Ooty). Then, she went to study medicine since her mother is a doctor. However, when the pre-med student did an internship at a hospital in India, she realised that the profession was not for her. In an interview with Harper’s BAZAAR, Diipa mentioned that she wanted to be a doctor to help people. When she would go back home after working in the internship, she was completely drained and tired.

Thus, she then went on to study law at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Netherlands. After earning a bachelor’s degree in international human rights law, she interned at the United Nations’ International Criminal Court and IMA Influencer Agency in London. However, this time too, she felt that law wasn't her true calling. Diipa then adopted the concept of digital content creation as she wanted to make a quick impact. Thus, she began making content based on beauty.

For the wedding, she wore nine different outfits for her 4-days long wedding in Udaipur India. They had pre-wedding festivities and two weddings, giving respect to both their cultures. Since then, the content creator keeps sharing lovely glimpses of her happy married life on her social media handles. In 2021, the couple was also blessed with a baby girl, Dua.

Professional achievements of Diipa

Coming back to her professional journey, Diipa then, along with her husband, Oleg Buller, set up a non-profit-organisation, Post For Change Foundation, in 2019. It was mainly formed to address social and global issues, related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals on women empowerment and gender equality. Due to this, she got widespread recognition and she also became the first Indian female influencer to speak at The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting at Davos in 2022. Moreover, she also became the first Indian influencer to walk at the Cannes Film Festival in 2018 and then at the Venice Film Festival.

Diipa Buller-Khosla on building a brand based on Ayurvedic rituals

In 2022, Diipa Buller-Khosla then launched her beauty brand, Inde Wild, inspired by her mother. Her brand products mainly combine Ayurvedic rituals with revolutionary science-backed chemistry and have already achieved a global platform. While the entrepreneur's bestseller product, a hair oil made using her mother’s formula, was made in Gurgaon, the lip balm is made in Seoul. Since then, she also started conducting Champi (head massage) campaigns to gain worldwide recognition. 

Diipa Buller-Khosla's 2023 appearance at Cannes gave a platform to her brand, Inde Wild

Diipa Buller-Khosla's participation in the 2023 Cannes Film Festival paved the way for her Indian-origin brand, Inde Wild. In an interview with CNBC-TV18, she talked about her wish to make such a brand which has a great impact. She said:

"I always wanted to do something that made an impact on our society - while law was able to do that, I knew it was a more slower, structured process. I fell in love with content creation because it enabled me to make an immediate impact by creating a platform where I had a voice free to advocate for any and all causes I cared about just through a simple click 'post'. Growing up, my mother always treated Ayurveda as 'the science of life'. When I started learning about skincare and the science behind it, that it only make sense to include my version of science with it. After all, I feel in love with ayuverdia because its organic and real - I felt everyone deserved an opportunity to buy products with the same authencity so I decided why not create them."
