Neeta Lulla is famous Indian costume designer & fashion stylist. She has worked on over 300 films. You will wonder to know that she didn’t have any interest in making career or in fashion industry.
While in an interview with Bollywoodlife, she shared a funny story as how she started taking interest in the professional learning.
It’s actually a pretty funny scenario. I didn’t really want a career. My in laws are very highly educated, and insisted that I should do something with my free time, whatever my interests lay in- whether it was tailoring or cooking or anything else. It was then that I enrolled myself for the fashion design course from PV Polytechnic SNDT University.
During the first year, however, I was pretty much disinterested and attended classes sporadically and flunked in most of the tests. But when the college teachers said that they would inform my in laws that I was not taking any interest in the course, the warning bells started to ring.
At that time the annual fashion show preparation were starting. I took part in the makeup and styling categories. To my utter surprise I landed the best designer award. From then on I just went with the flow and even I the second year I got the best designer award once again. That’s how it all began. It was not pre planned, things just started happening.
This shows that sometimes fear helps us perform better.
