Lately, modelling and beauty contests have become a path to get a break into films.
A lot depends on how the model faces or rather presents herself to the camera. Ramp walk is one of the parameters to judge a model.
Bollywood actress Jiah Khan was recently spotted at the Maxim bash. She was seen giving tips to models there.
Jiah Khan must have given some tips to the models present at the event. Being an actress, she knows how to face the camera.
Modelling is getting popular in India as a profession. The appreciation received by Indian girls on the international front has contributed in it.
Several former models including Aishwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen have received accolades in films.
Jiah was born as Nafisa Khan. She joined the Hindi film industry at the age of 19 in 'Nishabd' (2007).
Ram Gopal Varma presented Jiah Khan as a daring young girl who falls in love with a much older man in 'Nishabd'.
Later, Jiah did films such as 'Ghajini' and 'Housefull' but she is yet to find a place for herself in Bollywood.
Probably Jiah was always interested in films, that's why she studied film studies and literature during her formative years.
Jiah was supposed to debut with the Bhatt camp film 'Tumsa Nahin Dekha' but later the role went to Dia Mirza.
If reports are to be believed then Jiah was about to be featured with Shahid Kapoor in 'Chance Pe Dance', however Genelia D'Souza was the heroine in the final cut.
