Indian Male Models
Indian models have many opportunities to earn money. Along with regular television ads and ramp modeling, a successful model can also enter the acting industry like the above mentioned. Not only in Bollywood, this trend also found in Hollywood.
Dino Morea: First, he participated in the 1999 Gladrags Manhunt Contest and won the competition. Second, like John, he is a mixed breed; Italian father and Indian mother. I first saw Dino in the ad of Live-In Jeans, and it is one of my all time favorite ads. He did music videos and ads and achieved success in both of them. However, his acting career had not been very successful. Still, he is one of the most good looking actors at present in Bollywood and a great model.
John Abraham: Many of you may know John Abraham as one of the heartthrobs of Bollywood but he started his career as a model first saw him in a music video of Pankaj Udhasâ€™s song (Yun Mere Khat Ka). In that video, he was playing the role of a young man who first fell in love. Like Milind, John also did not have any thought of getting into modeling. This handsome guy, son of a Malayee Christian father and a Persian mother, was working as a media planner in an ad agency. After winning the second position in Gladrags Manhunt Contest in 1999, he did not have to look back. His campaign with Provogue, an Indian clothing Industry, was very successful. In 2003, he made his debut in Bollywood through â€œJismâ€. The movie was not very successful but made him recognized as a talented actor. In 2004, â€œDhoomâ€ where he played the role of villain, was a big hit in the box office.
Arjun Rampal: After watching his second film â€œDewanapanâ€, I thought, this guy would be the next salman khan of Bollywood. He studied in a boarding school and never bothered about his looks or face or looking good or smart. Arjun started modeling at the age of seventeen. At that time, he was studying in Hindu college. Rohit Bal, one of the most famous Indian fashion designers,, saw him in a discotheque and offered him to work as a model. He worked as a model for six years and became very successful. In 1996, he decided to get into films. In 2002, he won the Award of the International Indian Film Academy for Face of the Year.
