Kingfisher swimsuit calendar comes out in limited edition every year and aspiring models find it the best place to start their career. A number of models line up to participate in the contest with the dream of being part of that exclusive calendar.
This time too, hundreds of models will line up to try their luck and ace photographer Atul Kasbekar will shoot the entire 2011 calendar again. However, the latest addition in this year’s project is Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who happens to be girlfriend of liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s son Sidhartha Mallya. Well, before you start guessing lets clarify one thing that Deepika will not wear a two piece and start modeling for the calendar. The actress is playing the role of a judge along with her beau to select the 12 sexiest models. She was there to support her beau on choosing the models on Tuesday.
Several models participated in the competition to feature in the popular Kingfisher swimsuit calendar. Speaking about the criteria of her selection, Deepika said that the models should be intelligent apart from having good looks.
Padukone added that she just doesn’t want a good looking face or a perfect body but a perfect blend of both beauty and brain. She thinks that if one really wants to be successful, she has to be the entire package of intelligence, smartness, good look along with a perfect figure.
The actress added that she had been a part of the Kingfisher calendar earlier, so she can identify with the aspiring models very easily. Deepika added that during her time, there was no model hunt and she feels lucky to get that opportunity. She said that Atul Kasbekar noticed her at that time as she already started modeling by that time and she did not even required to compete with anyone.
Mallya stated that Kingfisher Calendar gives the biggest platforms to the aspiring models. He did not forget to compliment the models saying that they were bold and beautiful.
The calendar was launched in 2003, which was the first of its kind in India. We believe in association with an experienced model like Deepika, Sidhatha will choose some fresh and attractive faces, which will offer 12 fresh fragrances for 2011!
