A model from Kerala’s Prakasam district has landed in London after spending three months in the UK and making a name for herself in India.
Prakasampalu is the name given to the model in the photo above.
The 23-year-old, who will be joining the British model-management agency Models and Models India, has worked in the city since December.
She was part of a team of models that won a beauty pageant in Prakatnam in March.
She said she was attracted to the city because it was the only one she could call home.
“London is an attractive place, it has a lot of glamour and is a place I wanted to go to, I love it,” she said.
“There are lots of options to work in London, especially in the fashion and beauty industries.”
Palkhuri’s career started when she moved to India in the 1980s to study nursing.
She has worked as a clinical nurse in India, the UK, the US and the UAE.
Her work with Models and the Models and Modeling India office is a part of Prakashan’s ‘Made in India’ initiative.
I was really lucky in getting a chance to work with the Models & Models team in India as a model, Prakkulaidya, 23, who is from Prakam, India, told Mail Today.
“The beauty industry in India is changing and so are the standards of the models,” she added.
With the rise of the online industry and online dating, Palkhuli said it is easier for women to work abroad.

When asked if the models have been offered any money, Pankhuri said, “We are not making any money.
In fact, we are working very hard.
It is a new challenge for us and we are learning to live it.”
Palkhu is one of the many women working in the modelling industry from Kerala, a state that is home to more than a million people.
Prakasaam, a city of some 15 million, has been known as a hot new city in India because of its glamour, but the city also has some of the most diverse ethnic communities in the country, with the Indian diaspora comprising about a third of the population.
