“I have always enjoyed modeling and am very keen on keeping-up-to-date with fashion so it’s a natural progression for me to pick this back up. I’m excited to be working with the team at Next Models on my fashion positioning,” the 24-year-old said. ”Although I am on stage a lot performing, and often on music related photo shoots with my band The Wanted, I do really miss the kind of shoots you do as a model, that really focus on fashion and the art of photography.”
Kaneswaran said he is prepared for his bandmates to poke fun at his new career move.
“The boys in my band would think that I am most fussy when it comes to fittings, styling and shoots but I just know what looks good on me and I like looking smart.”
Model looks run in the Kaneswaran family. The singer’s twin brother Kumar has also worked as a model.
