Jennifer Kotwal: Actress

Looking trendy-as-ever, Jennifer Kotwal of Just Mohabbat fame gets chatty while on a visit to the city

From several Hindi television serials like Just Mohabbat, acting in a brief role in Subhash Ghai’s Yadeein to working as a model for the past six years, Jennifer Kotwal retains her appeal and her piquant style.

She was spotted in the city on Thursday for the launch of a beauty cream. Kotwal, a Parsi actress from Mumbai, has even worked extensively in the Kannada film industry. A perfect blend of splendor with intellect, on asking about Jennifer’s experience as an actor and a model and the distinction between the two diverse professions she is into, she says, “For me, both the careers are of same importance. I try my best to perform well in both the fields. Whatever I do, I do it with confidence. But there is surely a considerable difference in the two patterns – acting and modelling.” Both of these are her hobbies and she works at upholding them.

An alumnus of HR College, Mumbai, she completed her degree in Economics. Being born and brought up in south India, she faced difficulties while acquiring a fluency in Hindi. “Just Mohabbat helped me a lot in my career. I credit the tele-show for helping me polish my Hindi. I feel thankful for the opportunities that I got later because of it,” she adds. Dressed in casual jeans and a trendy kurti that saw a blending of a sense of modernity as well as Indian-ness in her dressing. Simple yet elegant, her talking reflected her simplicity.

Presently, Kotwal has kept herself away from the acting and modelling industry and is working on her fitness. She feels, “Being crazy about stuff like chocolates and pastries, living just on fatty food, I need to have a well-balanced and controlled diet. And so till June I will be working on achieving the same.” On being appointed a brand ambassador for the skin care product, she explains, “It feels good and is surely encouraging for me to go ahead in the field.”
