Tanishka Mihi Varma, a nine-years-old badminton player and under 10 champion from Bhopal is now going to pose for VISSTOSSO, a fashion brand associated with Amazon.
This time her achievement is not from the sports world, but from modelling. From a giggly teenager always seen in badminton outfits to a more serious, stylish version takes one by surprise. Famous Bollywood photographer Paramjit Chawla is associated with this photography project. First phase of photo shoot has been already completed.

The upcoming shoot is scheduled in more than three countries like America and Germany. Visstosso is known for leather products and started their operation in Madhya Pradesh and more States in India. Tanishka will be the face of company for Madhya Pradesh.


The company has selected Tanishka considering her sports talent. She went to Delhi for screening and got the chance in first attempt. “The reason behind signing the young champion Tanishka is to encourage, motivate and cheer the children of our country to participate more into sports activities rather spending time on internet because sport is an important part of healthy development of the kids.

Sports make them learn about the teamwork, physical fitness, trust and the challenges on the ground help them build the confidence hence it is important for the kids to practice sports every day. We could have done this partnership with much more mature player but there is a strong social cause behind the idea of signing this very young Badminton Champ, Tanishka Mihi Varma who rules the hearts of Madhya Pradesh”, says Sugandha Verma, Director of Visstosso.


“She is playing badminton from 5 years of age. At this age she got number of state level titles. She wanted to do something apart from badminton. We have seen her interest in modelling too as she poses in camera since childhood. She has posed perfectly and looked so confident during her photo shoot” says Sonu Varma, Tanishka’s mother.
