Suleman Hussain | The Man Behind the Model

Suleman Hussain | The Man Behind the Model

1. Can you take us back to your first modelling campaign? How did that opportunity come about, and when did your modelling journey kickstart?

In 2019, I started with Lajwanti when someone approached me on Instagram.

2. As a model, what has been the most significant moment of your career so far, and why does it stand out to you?

The most significant moment of my career so far hasn't been about a specific event, but rather the presence of the right people beside me or in my life who supported me throughout.

3. In what ways do you think the modeling industry can further advance its efforts towards genuine inclusivity and equal opportunity?

The industry needs to adopt a more welcoming and positive approach towards artists and models. Currently, there's a tendency to demean them, which is demotivating and fosters a judgmental environment.

4. Many models often explore acting as a career progression. Have you considered making this transition yourself? If so, what kind of roles or film genres are you interested in?

Yes, I'm considering a transition to acting and I am waiting for the right script and the right time. I'm interested in positive, romantic, and even negative roles.

5. What does a day off from modeling look like for you?

A day off for me is a relaxed "me time" spent with my son, Burak.

6. What's something about you that most people don't know?

A lesser-known fact about me is that I'm overly possessive and extend my care for close ones well beyond just words.

7. If you weren't a model, what other career path might you have pursued?

If I weren't a model, I might have pursued a career as a nutritionist.

8. Outside of modelling, what are your passions or hobbies?

Football, gym, and cooking.

9. What’s your biggest fear?

My biggest fear is losing the people I love.

10. Describe Suleman Hussain in three words.

Possessive, passionate and positive.
