Born and brought up in the land of fish, football and royal Bengal tigers. I am Rhituparna Chatterjee, a Bengali tigress. I’m strong, independent and fearless. A biotechnologist who decided to pursue her passion, Modelling into profession. That one thing that I always wanted to be is A model. I participated in a beauty pageant in 2012 and was placed the 1st runner up. There was no looking back since then. Again in 2014 I was the 2nd runner up of Shyam sundar jewellers present Sharad Sundari. I have worked for designer Payal jain, Abhraham and Thakore, Samant Chauhan,Nakshatra diamonds, Tanishq, Audi to name a few.
I am a nature lover and an artist. I spend my leisure time taking care of my plants and by putting my thoughts and soul in my canvass. Books have always been my best friend; I can spend my whole day lying in bed reading books. A true Bengali at heart, Tagore and Ray will always hold a special place in my life. I never stop learning and I strongly feel as a model you should explore all your sides and come out of the cocoon. Every time I set my foot on the ramp or studio, I feel an extra kick of energy. My confidence is my best accessory. I live life to the fullest. I have always been a great fan of Audrey Hepburn. Her style and flamboyance have always inspired me. Life has never been a bed of roses for me but my positivity and never give up attitude have always pulled me up. I strongly believe “Work hard in silence, let your success be the noise”.
My family has been my biggest support system. They believed in me and no matter what never gave up on me. Whatever I’m today, I owe it all to my family.
A turning point in my career came when Rajib Sir gave me the opportunity to feature in BOGO GIRL. This was a highly prestigious offer for me as I had always looked up to Rajib Sir and his work. He was extremely cordial and fun to work with. He guided me so well that all my stress went away in a blink. I will always be grateful to Rajib Sir for believing in me and exploring a new version of me.
To all the young girls out there who have big dreams in their eyes, never give up. Always work hard. Your determination and dedication will help you reach the zenith.
