3. How much has Mr India fame helped you to emerge as a front-runner in your career?
It’s a proud feeling when your name is replaced by your country name. Because of Mr.india title, I am getting overseas modelling assignments.
4. What would be your advice for those who cannot make it to the important event like Mr India, which can give the much-needed push in career?
According to me, everyone is patriotic, everyone is serving his/her nation in his/her way, like teachers in school, soldiers in the army, farmers in the field etc. So I just want to say that just go for Mr.India pageant guys hopefully you will get a chance to represent our beloved Country.
Indeed it brings a new proposal, a new responsibility for you and if you want to do modelling than just go for it because it can be the turning point of your life.
5. What are the elements that one require to be Mr India?
According to me, He should be very optimistic, very dedicated, very energetic, he should have the ability to think beyond colour, race etc. Because being Mr.india you are not only liable for yourself or your family but you are Liable for your country.
6. What are the things that you have learnt from Mr India contest?
The most important thing I learnt from my pageant is how to present yourself, how to carry yourself.
7. How do you balance between a personal and professional life as you have suddenly turned into a busy person?
Earlier it was little difficult for me to manage both my personal as well as professional life but now it’s not that much difficult, every day I wake up early in the morning I take a look at my schedule and just follow that schedule throughout the day.
8. How do you rate Indian models compared to the international? Do you think we have inherent positive/negative in us?
Every model has different qualities, abilities, capabilities. In my opinion, we guys(Indian models) are the best.
9. What would be the advice for the young generation to want to make modelling or acting as their career?
I just want to say one thing to the young generation- always do whatever u want to do, hard work with consistency is the key to success if someone wants or have a dream to be an actor or a model than at least just give a chance to yourself to chase your dreams.
