Pageantry, Modelling & Film
Modelling offers arose during her school years, however she chose to enter the world of glamour post her BSc graduation, participating in Miss India Pageant 2000 which was followed by over a hundred assignments for advertisements and catalogs for diverse brands and prestigious campaigns of Pepsi, Coke, Tata Sky, De Beers Diamonds, amongst many others. And then a chance encounter at a friend's wedding caught the attention of legendary filmmaker Yash Chopra, which led her to acting, with a lead role in one of his films. This path of acting continued in 17 Indian films as the female lead or as a guest appearance, including the lead in an Indo-French one that garnered acclaim and awards at Venice Film Festival amongst other film festivals. She also starred as the protagonist in a TV series called Airlines.
From an early age of 5 , Tulip's encounters with revered figures like her favourite Spiritual Guru Bhagwan Rajneesh - Osho, compassionate souls like Mother Teresa, and a series of surreal, mystical experiences ignited her curiosity, leading her to delve into Vedic Astrology and Vedic Sciences studying under esteemed Siddhi yogis and Acharyas, including Acharya Sanjay Budhwant, Captain Vinod Nair, Pandit Maitesh, and Shri V. Srinivas.
