Once a successful model and daughter of a Navy Officer, Geetanjali Nagpal walked the ramp for many popular designers. Soon she was addicted to drugs and in 2007 she was found begging on the streets of South Delhi and spending her nights in parks and temples. The model also worked as a maid to quell her cravings for drugs and alcohol. There was also a report that after one of the photographer spotted her and took her photographs she slid her t-shirt down her shoulders and posed like a model. Later, after the reports were published she was approached by Delhi Commission for Women and was taken to police station and later to a mental asylum.
Shonali’s character played by Kangna ranaut in Fashion was inspired by this model
