Supermodel-actress Elena Fernandes who made her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Kapoor & Sons, has always been an academic before she carved a niche for herself in the glamour world.
Unlike most model-turned-actors, Elena is highly qualified and holds a law degree though she admits that modeling and acting happened by chance!
Elena says, “I’ve already done my law degree from Kings College University of London and now studying LPC which is Legal Practice Course at the University of Law to qualify as a solicitor. I did my practical legal research paper in between shoots and rescuing and neutering cats in Mumbai.”
“Modeling and acting was something that I fell in to. I’ve always been an academic. And I juggle it with my career and animal welfare duties,” Elena adds.
