Khanvilkar is the only model who, at present, is appearing in more than 3
music videos. She has bounced back after her divorce from fellow model Sameer
Soni whom she met when they were doing Cadbury's Choclate ad. She has just splashed
all the magazines and TV with her face. She is everywhere. That'w why I decided
to make her the model of the month. She has become one of the most sought after
professional model today.
Rajlaxmi is from Ratnagiri District of Maharashtra
thus making her hard core Marathi Mulgi (girl). When she was married, she was
know as Rajlaxmi Soni and people thougt that she was a South Indian.
Rajlaxmi is not interested in movies as she says that she don't have falir for
that. She says, "I get homesick very easily and I can't stay for extended periods
of time at outdoor locations. Moreover my parents are dead against acting in movies."
Her father Manmohan Khanvilar is a builder, architect and an interior
decorator. She says, "Truly, my father is my life. I'm completely carzy about
him and I can't tale anyone saying anything against him. I love my mother too
but I am closer to dad."
She studied at BPM High School, Khar, Mumbai.
She loved to take part in every sporting activity was a complete tomboy. She did
pretty well academically and participated in almost all extra curricular activities.
Rajlaxmi Khanvilkar did her 11th and 12th from Mithibai College, Mumbai.
While in College, Rajlaxmi started doing fashion shows and was able to convince
her father about that.Hemant Trivedi was one of the designers in one of the college
shows and he told her that she ahs a chance to amke in really big in modelling.
Suddenly the word spread that a look alike of Aishwarya Rai and Namrata
Shirodkar was the new face on Indian modelling scene.Her first big ad campaign
was Garden Vareli.
At the age of 20 she got married and after 7 months,
she got seperated also. At that time, she was just crazy about marriage. She wanted
to get married from the age of 18. She says that she is not a career woman.
Rajlaxmi doesn't wear revealing clothes on ramp or for ad. Her parents are
against it. Co-ordinators also adjust to this demand of her. In future, she wants
to open a Skin Clinic and want to teach Art of Living.
