When opportunities will knock your door you never know. Model and host Mini Mathur before marking her entry into entertainment world, worked as an advertising professional. Mini started receiving modelling offers after becoming the face of Ray Ban sunglasses.
The Dil Vil Vil Pyar Vyar actor taking a trip down to a memory lane shared on the same. On her Instagram feed she stated that how the unexpected Rayban advertisement turned her career from an MBA in an advertisement to a TV host.
Mini wrote, “The advertisement for Rayban that unexpectedly turned my career as an MBA in an advertisement agency to a TV host. Way back when. It’s funny how life works. A model doesn’t show up for a pitch. The creative director Abhinav Dhar decides that me- a management trainee at my desk on a Saturday afternoon, is good enough and click! @rohitchawlaphotography_ shoots me beautifully with studied disdain reserved for client servicing trainees.
“What happened after, changed my career path. This ad got me more & more modelling work and suddenly @sanjoykroy decided I was good enough to be the co-host India’s first game show on zee – Tol Mol ke Bol along with the @actormaddy!! I often wonder … is this serendipity or destiny. Was I meant for the corporate world? What if I wasn’t at my desk that afternoon in 1996? What if the model had shown up? Have you often wondered? Tell me? @rayban #mystory #careertwist #serendipity #destiny”
