While everyone recognizes the brand value you have after you've been successful, only a few people actually care to think about the effort you've put in to get to where you are. We've seen hundreds of rags with rich tales, and the best thing about these tales is that you immediately connect with them as soon as you hear them.
This time, we 're going to talk about Vikramjeet Virk, who used to live in a small town in Karnal but now has accomplished so much in his life. He started as a model, and now he has a lot of movies in progress (that too in various languages).
In an exclusive interview with GhaintPunjab, Vikramjeet talked about his struggle and entry into the fashion model world.
He said, "We didn't have the simplest communication resources compared to the means we have today. In today's time, if you need to search for a model agency, you just need to type “Modeling agencies near me”, and you'll get all the details. However, when I began in 2003, you had to dig for all the details on the basis of your groundwork. He admitted that if someone somehow manages to get important contact details, he used to be on cloud nine after that.
Talking about his entry into the world of fashion modeling, he said he met a production team from the popular Punjabi TV show, through which he was referred to some modeling agency. Following that, he met with the Elite Model Management Agency and a renowned choreographer. The choreographer instructed him to take part in the Lakme Fashion Week auditions in Delhi.

He confessed that during those days, because he didn't have a place to stay in Delhi, most of the time he used to live in Bangla Sahab Gurudwara, Delhi. He also said, "While I didn't have the charisma and beauty of being chosen at the auditions, I was lucky enough to be picked. Therefore I got a chance to appear at the Lakme India Fashion Week. This gave a jump start to my career.” Also Read: Interview: Vikramjeet Virk Discusses Modeling, TV, Films, Pollywood & Lockdown!
