Jasmin Bhasin opens up about her struggles
Recalling her early gigs, Jasmin Bhasin shared that she used to earn around rupees 500 or 1000 for hosting events. She shared that her turning point came when a renowned photographer's team, staying at the hotel where she worked, approached her for a brand photoshoot. Earning rupees 5000 for this opportunity, her pictures were put up in hoardings and newspapers which opened the doors for more lucrative photoshoots and projects.
