Sameer Khan, a trainer, choreographer and groomer in fashion industry is from a remote village, Bulerikatte that lies on Panaje Road, about 9 kilometers from Puttur town. The locals have to travel by a few private buses that ply between the town and their village. The mobile connectivity goes off whilst reaching the village.
It’s difficult to imagine a boy who has studied in state-run school in the village, toiled in paddy fields and plantations during his childhood has made his name in fashion industry. It’s true. The boy has said good bye to studies soon after his SSLC to begin a new life in Bangalore. But now, he is well known in the fashion industry.
