Rajasthan girl Apurva Soni, who became a name to be reckoned with after participating in the reality show MTV India's Next Top Model Season 3, has been the face of several brands and television commercials. Now, she is ready to take a giant leap from modelling to acting by appearing in a web series produced by Applause Entertainment.

But, it has not been an easy ride for her. The actress, who received much accolades and appreciation in the modelling world, was looked down upon as a teenager for her skin colour.

Talking about the same, she says, "We are in 2019 and still a large number of people in our country suffer from this complex about skin colour. I grew up in a conservative family in Rajasthan and was always at the receiving end of taunts and insulting comments from my relatives and family friends. Even at school, I was not spared. My parents, however, have always been very supportive and taught me to be a confident and secure person."
