In 2014, she was 1st runner-up at Miss NDA and in 2015 she won ‘She’s Got the Look’. However, this was just the beginning which helped her recognize her strengths. She is a mesmerizing belly dancer and has innate acting skills. Owing to the degree she is currently pursuing, she is also an excellent designer and has designed for Miss India 2015.


Modelling is something that she enjoys doing whereas, her dreams are to be Miss World and to be an actor-cum-star. The art of performing and entertaining people, fashion, the fame and the camera is what drives her towards her dreams. She has worked in many television commercials and is a popular and in-demand face for the same.


Her life-changing moment was being a Femina Miss India finalist. Thereon, from just Pranati she became a public figure, Pranati Rai Prakash. Googling herself was a matter of great pride for her. Since then, she has judged many fashion shows and is currently working on many styling projects. Actress and singer Priyanka Chopra is her inspiration.

Despite all her achievements and talents, Pranati is very much committed to her college. Her talents lie in multiple fields like dance, acting, modeling and styling but she figured a way out of her dilemma and decided to stick to styling till she’s a graduate. After her graduation she wants to shift her focus on just one and excel in that particular field. Therefore, she will be grooming herself to be an actor after her degree.
