Gehana Vasisth again came into the limelight when in November 2017, in a string of exposes, she revealed the dark secrets of several Bigg Boss Season 11 contestants.
Speaking about her first break Gehana says, I got my first break in 2012. It was a clothing brand ad for Monte Carlo. For me it came like a shock, as I never expected it and I was preparing for my MBA CAT entrance exams. However, as the amount offered was good and I was doing my engineering in Computer Science on an education loan, I took up this offer immediately, with the only thought that I will be able to pay for my college, hostel and other fees. Later on in 2012, I participated in an international pageant where I was selected to represent India at the international round.
After the Monte Carlo ad, there was no looking back. I got offers and worked with brands like Pepsi, Philips, Arena, Lux Shampoo with Malaika Arora and many other lesser known brands. I was also selected as an anchor for the show True Life on MTv and also for the serial Behanein on Star Plus. My first Hindi film Dal mein Kuch Kala Hein was with Pakistani artiste and former Bigg Boss contestant Veena Malik. I later did an item song with Bali Brahmbhatt and a film titled Filmy Duniya.
It was at this time that I made my debut in the South film industry and was selected for films like Anukunnadi Okati Ayyindi Okati, Namaste , B Tech Love Story, Aidu 5, 33 Prema Kathalu, Preminchu Pilladu, Lalijo Lalijo, Banjara Tigers, Peigal Jaakirathai, Iravaakalam to name a few and many more.
I was also selected for the Hindi Bollywood film Kamasutra 3D in the role of Savita Barbie, but the film is yet to take off. Fortunately, my success story did not stop there. I was selected for the film Lucknowi Ishq as an item dancer opposite Adhyayan Suman – son of Shekhar Suman. I have also been part of Kasam serial on Colors and right now I am shooting for Pyar Ki Kasauti of Balaji Productions.
I have done about 20 south films in different roles as well as over 70 ads and ad films. Not to forget several stage shows and 4 serials in continuity roles.
Gehana Vasisth has faced several ups and downs in her life, but she persevered and kept going. She did not give up and after four years fraught with hard work, determination and grit, she has achieved quite a lot – and that too without any godfather. Hats off to Gehana Vasisth.
