Ketaki was born in Ahmedabad in a traditional Brahmin Family. She did her schooling in Gujarat and completed a B.Ed. When she began to lose her hair at the age of 40 due to alopecia, she drifted into depression. However, she decided to accept her illness and boldly started moving around without a wig. Five years later, she became the first finalist with alopecia to have made it to the “Mrs. India Worldwide” finale.
