Ketholeno Kense: To The Camera Born
Last year, she won the Kingfisher Calendar Hunt 2014, and 25-year-old model Ketholeno Kense, popularly known as Leno, says, “It was the most challenging thing I have done so far. The three to four hours of sleep a day and continuous work were brutal, but all the hard work was worth it”.
Denims, oversized shirts, and an array of shoes and sunglasses are her wardrobe staples; and when asked about her preferred body type she opts for a toned, healthy body — but on a cheat day she would undoubtedly vote for bacon. Bollywood is vibrant, says the Nagaland-born model, who is upbeat about an upcoming political movie project that she is working on.
An enthusiastic poser and eager Instagrammer, Ketholeno is modest about her work so far — which includes appearing on magazine covers, shooting for fashion spreads and sashaying down the ramp at fashion weeks. She states, “I never expected to reach this far. I feel blessed knowing that I have put hope in other models from the North-East. It’s incredibly humbling to know that I can inspire someone.”
