Model Kashyap Soni stepped into the modeling industry with no knowledge of how the industry works. He hails from a family that runs a legacy business. He did Mechanical Engineering and was the topper of his college. Kashyap started working in this industry in 2018. Then, he had no clue that he will become so passionate about acting and modeling.
After completion of his college, he started working upon himself and started grooming himself. Afterward, his trainer Sangram Singh motivated Kashyap to go ahead for this industry. With the help of his mentor, he was selected for his first advertisement shoot with a Gujarati Actor Ravi Sharma. It was his first breakthrough into the industry.
His family has been supportive, always. Even after knowing little about how this industry works, they have been a pillar of support. He has won many pageants and triumphs in the modeling industry too. Moreover, Kashyap is also keen on acting.
After his successful advertisement shoot, he competed for Mr. India 2018 in Bangalore and finished off winning it. It was a great learning experience for him with the very famous jury, Sonal Monteiro, and many more.
Kashyap was Mr. Ambitious 2018 and 1st runner-up in Mr. Ahmedabad 2018. Moreover, he has worked with brands like Amazon, Flipkart, Lee Harvest from Gujarat, and Anand Gupta couture from Mumbai. He has also been part of many Gujarati short films. Also featured in Gujarati and Hindi. He also does shoot for Radha Mira Creation garments whose owner is Bharat Boliya. Kashyap also worked in the video song dedicated to our respected Prime Minister Narendra Modi as praise for what he did for the Nation and homeland Gujarat. It was sung by very profound singers of Bollywood, Ved Sharma, and Avanie Joshi.
It was quite challenging for Kashyap in the initial stage. The main reason for his rejection from films and roles was his Gujarati undertone in speech. However, his hard work and dedication on his correcting his speech paid off. Later, he was getting small side roles in the film industry.
His journey was easy, although he met many fraudsters along the way. However, he believes they turned out to be the stairs to success for him. The people were actually, contacting real models and this helped Kashyap to network. He later got in contact with them and started knowing people from the industry.
He has also been betrayed at times, but he kept on going without letting this hamper his work.
“My close ones betrayed me many time. Though I never said anything to them even after knowing everything. I simply ignored it and kept on focusing on my hard work. One day everyone will see my work.”
Kashyap is also the brand ambassador of Heritage Hill and Weekend Villas in Rajasthan and Athiz Resort of Sasan-Gir, Gujarat. He has many skills up his sleeve. He is a jury, fashion choreographer, and director as well.
Kashyap is one of those models whose journeys seem easy on the outside, while the struggles they face are real. Hope his story helps as an inspiration to you as it was to us.
