If you think being a model is a cakewalk let us make things clear: it is not, especially for men. In a country where designer fashion is defined mostly by women’s wear, these male models have made a name for themselves by tiptoeing between their Bollywood dreams and fashion’s harsh realities. There is a lot behind those chiselled cheekbones and abs that everyone drools over. It takes sheer dedication and persistence to survive in this industry where excellence has no definition and competition lurks in every corner. We track 6 male models who don’t just lead in their field but also have super-interesting success stories.
