I'm Gaurav Kumar Gautam
When and how did you begin modelling? Were you studying or working before then?
I started with modelling during my graduation days, and it all started in the college fest when my friends convinced me to participate in the fashion show as I had a good height and quiet a good face and gradually started liking it and participating in it more often.
I was studying before then.
Why modelling when you could have settled in for a more stable permanent career?
Modelling is something which makes me happy or you can say its my passion so I would rather chase my passion instead of earning money and being unhappy.
Tell me about your first assignment. if any How did it happen? What was the experience like (make this answer as personal as possible)
There were no such assignments for modelling particularly but yes I was offered a Calendar photoshoot. Initially I was really nervous as I was facing camera for the first time but on the other hand I was also excited because I could see myself heading towards my passion.
What do you feel makes you a good model? Your face? Your body? Your attitude? As opposed to others?
Modelling is just not about face or body. unless and until you have positive attitude you won’t be able to carry yourself because you have to face quiet a lot of rejections at different stage. I think I have the never give up attitude which helps me stay positive even at rejections.
Why Rubaru Mr. India when there is so many local pageants happen ??
I have been following Rubaru from quiet sometime and I have seen winners getting career opportunities both national and international.
Did Mr. India just happen to you along the way – or were you preparing to take part in the pageant?
I have been preparing for Mr. India from last two years.
Tell us about how you train for it. What is the regimen like? What are the challenges involved?
The very first thing with which I started my training was my physique. I had to really work hard on it as I used to be very lean and thin.
I included healthy diets and workouts as part of my daily routine. Maintaining or getting a healthy diet was really tough as I used to stay alone away from home and above that hitting the gym regularly was really hectic after long college hours.
What makes you feel you should be the chosen one? What’s different about you as a contestant?
The hard work and dedication which I have put in improving myself through all these years makes me feel I deserve it.
I am sure the contestants with great body and attitude are going to show up in the show but I think I am different from them because of my never give up attitude.
How will winning the Mr. India pageant will going to affect your life?
For a guy like me, winning the title will really enhance my confidence that people from small town can also compete at such level and achieve success. I can become an inspiration for many other guys like me who are dreaming to achieve success in these fields.
what are your view an thought for cause camping of save girl child how you will educated to stop this in our country ?
This is one of the biggest issues in our country right now and I think not only the law makers but also the common people have the responsibility to make the country a better place to live in. In my view this is a great initiative because nobody can be debarred of right to life just because of their sex, and most importantly no life is possible without
women and people need to understand this as soon as possible.
People should be made aware about the importance of the female counterpart because if there are less no. of females the society will have to face the adverse affect of it.
