Bollywood is on Mr. World’s wish list
New Delhi, July 29 (IANS) Rohit Khandelwal, the first Indian to win the coveted title of Mr. World, says he wants to head to Bollywood eventually but is not in a hurry.
“Bollywood is in my list but I haven’t decided anything like when, how and which… I am just going with the flow,” Khandelwal told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
It’s not just Bollywood that Khandelwal is eyeing. He wants to get associated with social causes too.
“I want to be associated with Miss World organisation because they do a lot of associations for empowering child education,” he said.
Hailing from Hyderabad, Khandelwal moved to Mumbai a few years back to follow his dream, and started his career as a model. He was crowned Provogue Personal Care Mr. India World 2015, and clinched the Mr. World tag at the recently held event in Britain.
He said: “The journey has been fantastic. It started with Hyderabad where I was not sure of what I was doing in my life working in three different companies but I was not happy. I wanted to follow my heart, I wanted to be in front of the camera because that was always what I dreamt of.”
Khandelwal moved to Mumbai “all by myself, not knowing anybody and I started off. It took me sometime but I was very positive about everything”.
Khandelwal says Indian fashion world is opening its gate for male models.
“I don’t believe that there is any difference between a male model and female model because male pageants have been growing now. I think we are getting a lot of attention right now and I am sure lot of other guys will be interested now.”
