I, Jayanta Saikia am a model and an actor based in Mumbai. But I have been born and brought up in Guwahati, Assam. Even though I am a graduate of Commerce (hons) from Delhi University, I have always known that being a model was my true calling. I joined a modeling school run by an international modeling agency called Elite Modeling Agency. After doing my diploma from the agency, my modeling career took off and I got to work with another modeling agency for a year. However, I also had an interest in films and wanted to be part of film making. I shifted to Mumbai and joined ‘Actor prepares’ acting school by Anupam Kher.
