An award winning supermodel and actor helped inspire students seeking careers in film, theatre and television.

Kiran Rai, 24, who has been signed to ten international model agencies and appeared on Sky TV’s Sikh channel, met with students from Luton’s Bury Park area on Friday 4 to give advice about careers in the media and film industry.

During the meeting, held on Hightown Road, Kiran also offered three lucky students the chance to visit the Asian Bride Live show on Saturday, November 19, at Olympia Stage, London.

Kiran is presenting the event, which showcases the bridal industry’s ‘finest suppliers’, and will introduce the students to valuable media contacts to help encourage future work opportunities.

Kiran said: “The Asian Live Show is good fun. I am excited about helping people and giving them the chance to continue with there dreams.”

The actor grew up in Nottingham and is from a Hindu Punjabi background.

Kiran has starred in a one-man West End play, Good Things Happen to Good People, at London’s Soho Theatre.

It was based on a breakdown Kiran had in his youth, living in a hostel, and the actor wanted to inspire Luton students with his life story.
