Mandira Bedi is a TV presenter, model, actress, fashion designer, style icon and fitness enthusiast. But the stunning mother of a six-year-old is certainly not content with her well-plumed hat and says, “I always told myself that I will keep pushing my own boundaries and would never be content with a particular item for too long”.
“You Do Your Best Only When You Enjoy What You Are Doing” Mandira Bedi at the Signature Startup Masterclass Season 2
Born to Punjabi parents in erstwhile Calcutta, “Mondira”, as she was named originally, was raised in Delhi till she was four and then moved with her parents to Mumbai. After completing her education from St Xavier’s College and Sophia Polytechnic, in her own words, she felt, “life has come full circle from where you look at your teachers, to standing in front of an audience, hoping whatever little you have done could influence them, in however miniscule a way,” when asked about hosting a Signature Startup Masterclass on a cold evening in Chandigarh. Grateful as well as anxious, Mandira is poise personified as she adds, “I am very excited to do this. Of late I have done a fair amount of ‘motivational’ talks, because honestly I never believed there could be a take-home that people attending my ‘talks’ could have. I was very anxious for the first few, but now I am happy doing them. I thought about it for a while, and I realised I could share the underlying theme of coming out of your comfort zone that has marked my life. It feels very good to be one of the coveted few to be able to motivate people.”
