Look of the Year,1995|
Nina Manuel modelling was the first choice. Born in Mumbai, brought up
and educated in Kuwait and Bahrain, Nina started modelling when she was in school.
Nina won the Femina Look of the year in the year 1995 and from that moment she
shot to fame. This dusky, long-legged beauty was the talk of the modelling world
with her saucy eyes and a smile forever playing on her naughty lips.
Nina has catwalked for almost all the big names in the fashion industry like Tarun
Tahiliani, JJ Valaya, Ravi Bajaj, Rohit Bal... and even done campaigns for upmarket
brands such as Coke, Levi´s, Baush & Lomb, San Miguel. She has featured in videos
for pop singers Remo, Anaida and Baba Sehgal. Today Nina wears the garb of Channel
[V] VJ and you can catch her on the Late Night [V] show.
Nina loves to
listen to music made by the kinds of Mobey, Vienna Scientist, Café Del-A-Mar,
Tricky and Basement Jacks. Relationships are very important for her and she says
that the person she loves should love her for who she is and not for who they
want her to be.
Who is her ideal man then? "The mind interests me more
than the body... I´m not hell bent on men with muscles. It isn't a necessity,
but yes I wouldn't date this really huge, fat guy," Nina chuckles.
