and Tupur, the sensational twins are creating waves in the modelling world.
Two years back they didn’t not exist and now their names are on everybody’s lips.
Born on 24th of April, 1980, they are carbon copies of each other. Tupur is 12
minutes older than her twin, Tapur. They though look alike and even their names
sound similar but basically both of then are poles apart mentally. They share
a very deep bond and are always there for one another.
They have a pretty
impressive portfolio and have done ads for Titan Raga watches, Lakme and Park
Avenue amongst others with a cover for Femina and numerous fashion features in
various magazines like Elle and Cosmopolitan. They have also been offered a couple
of Bollywood movies but right now they are not interested in joining films coz
modelling is their first priority.
Tapur, is a commercial artist from
Sophia College while Tupur, is a genetics student from St. Xavier’s. “ We came
into this profession just by chance and luck and hard work has brought us here”.
Asked if looking alike was ever a problem Tapur puts in very sweetly, “ No, its
our plus point. At first it did cause some trouble but we didn’t let it bother
us. We had a great bonding and didn’t let outsiders create problems between us”.
Everyone must be wondering what is the meaning of their name, right? When
asked amidst peals of girlish laughter, Tapur says, "Our grandparents got the
names from Rabindranath Tagore poem, 'Brishti Porey Tapur-Tupur!' which means,
‘Pitter-patter falls the rain!’" We love our names as it is unique and stands
out in the crowd and people find it easy to remember too.
