Angela Johnson was rumored to be dating actor Ranbir Kapoor in 2011. At this time, she did not make any statement about her relationship with Ranbir Kapoor, but later, in an interview, she said,
Yes, Ranbir and I dated. We went out for dinner like two normal adults in the city. As any gentleman would and should do, he asked me off the record. Since winning the Kingfisher Calendar Hunt, my modeling career has worked out better than I ever expected. I cannot attribute the successes to anyone but my hard work and the success of my agents.
She also added that when she reads rumors about herself, she gets very stressed. She was also rumored to be dating actor Shahid Kapoor. Currently, Angela is dating Jeff Nelson (as of 2020).
Angela’s modeling career began in 2011 when she won the Kingfisher Calendar Hunt competition. After Angela finished her schooling and turned 18, she moved to Iceland to spend time with her family. After some time, she returned to Bangalore and stayed with some friends. There she participated in a fashion show and did a photo shoot for the Lenovo brand. She got Rs. 20,000 for the shoot. Until now, she didn’t take modeling seriously, but when a friend suggested her to compete in the Kingfisher Girl Hunt, she started working on her own, won the competition, and later shot for the calendar. Then he moved to Mumbai in 2011 and found Mumbai really crowded and dusty. Angela said in an interview that winning the competition made her more confident. In 2013, she refereed the Kingfisher Calendar Women’s Hunt. He said in an interview about his experience as a judge on the show,
This year the stage was the same, but the character was different. I went there as a judge for an episode. This time the girls were a bit nervous as the competition was tough. It was interesting to share advice with these women and get their feedback. The only tip I give them all is to work hard and try to do your best in whatever they do.
Angela has worked for big designers like Manish Malhotra, Vikram Patnis, Tarun Tahiliani, Malini Ramani and Shantanu-Nikhil. She also acted in an advertisement with South Indian actor Mahesh Babu.
While shooting with Mahesh Babu, Salman Khan, who wanted to introduce Angela first, got very angry. She has also appeared on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine (2011), Femina (2011), Harper’s Bazaar (2011), Maxim (2011), Grazia (2011) and Vogue (2012).
Angela made her film debut in 2013 with Salman Khan in Shere Khan. He also took Hindi classes for the film to become fluent in Hindi. Sohail Khan has confirmed this news in an interview.
Yes, he has signed an exclusive contract with us. But we haven’t decided which movie or which movie she will act in. We think she has great potential. We will start her.
Rumors surfaced that he had signed AR Murugadoss’ film ‘Malai Sama Ramishthuli’, but he denied it. He said that South Indian films were a good platform to explore his acting skills. In an interview, he talked about South Indian films.
Mostly in the South, the voices (of non-speaking actors) are dubbed. Also, we are given cue cards that tell us in English what we are talking about. I am told that South Indian films are a good training experience for newcomers. I’ve heard their cinematographers are great, more professional than those in Bollywood. Besides, most leading heroines like Aishwarya Rai, or Sridevi or Deepika Padukone have started or worked in South Indian films at some point in their careers.

Remember that the more you work, the more experience you gain and the better model you become. Work with a variety of photographers. Be professional; Come on time and do the job properly. Find your niche that gets you the most work — if you think you’re good at ramp modeling, do more work there, or if you think you’re a good business model, focus on that. Always have a backup plan.
