In India, people consider Modelling as a profession taken up by brainless people. It is believed that they cannot pursue any other ‘respectable’ profession. On top of it, a man pursuing the career of wearing different clothes and posing in 6-pack abs, that too in a dominant male community like India, is not much justifiable. However, hot Indian Men Models are coming up and making their own space in the modeling Industry.
Well, modeling is not just walking on a runway and posing for different brands daily. It is extremely tougher than that and requires a lot of creativity and thought, that is, using ‘brains.’
India has a high number of female models who have represented and made our country proud in pageants like Miss Universe or Miss World, and we all hear their names and see their pictures on social media. For female models today, there are opportunities for becoming a plus-size model as well, so having a perfectly toned and slim figure is not the only way.
However, the same is not the case with Indian Male Models. The hot Indian Men Models wishing to walk on a runway for a designer must be at least 6 feet tall. The models have to live a life of restraints and high discipline. The audience is going to drool over the male models having great abs and height, broad shoulders, and sharp jawlines.
Maintaining all these features is no piece of the cake. Avoiding tempting sweets and junk food, dedicating specific hours regularly for exercise, and going to the gym requires perseverance.
The industry is growing gradually for Male Modelling, and certain faces or bodies have been tempting for posing for a varied range of Men apparel and accessories. Here are the Top 7 Hot Indian Men Models which are burning the runways-
