Imran Khan's Runway Modeling Academy

Imran Khan's Runway Modeling Academy
Priyanka Pulla / fullhyd.com
Modeling in Hyderabad took its baby steps with Imran Khan, and now, in its adolescence, he waits like a patient parent for it to commence its adulthood. Which he says is about 5 years away.

A fashion choreographer of great repute, Imran Khan started his career as a model himself in 1982, and set up Runway in 1997 after having established himself rather well. His academy today has about 400 students on roll, but only about 35 of them are up and on their way, being trained by Khan. The others who still have to make the grade in areas like physique, attitude and discipline required of a model, have to head home and iron their skills again before coming back. Khan is picky and has results to show for it too. Every year, at least one of his students enters the Femina Miss India, Grasim and Gladrags supermodel contests. In 2001, Reggie Verghese from his academy won the Gladrags title.

While he is the only instructor for modeling at Runway, he draws on the skills of a beautician, an aerobics instructor, designers and, foremost, his wife Mahnoor Khan, who is an accomplished designer and beautician herself.

Hyderabadis still have their misgivings for modeling, and the fashion scene is not vibrant enough to support full-time models. But the students of this academy often move to other cities and get assignments in movies, video albums and advertising campaigns. Famous ones in Hyderabad are Neeru's, Kalanjali and Chandana Brothers, all of which are graced by models trained at Runway.

Presently, Runway plans to tie up with a UK-based modeling agency to help it keep up with the growing demand for Indian faces. And that means much more on the platter for Khan's students.

Most of the big fashion shows in Hyderabad, and a small sprinkling abroad as well, have Runway's name attached to them. The Country Club shows, the Reliance prepaid launch, the Toyota Camry launch, the Ray-Ban killer loop glasses show, and private shows for many MNCs in Hyderabad are some of them. Khan choreographed the fashion shows at the Festival Of Asia held in London in 2003, as well the Birmingham Telugu Association's decimal celebrations in September.

So if modeling is something you are serious about, get noticed by Khan, and it shouldn't be too tough to get noticed by the rest of the world. And the price you play is probably the lowest in India, at Rs. 5,000 for beginners. Moreover, Khan believes in enabling earning while learning, so if you don't count his exacting standards, his students have a rather cushy deal.
