Professional boxer and model Pardeep Kharera is the potential Rubaru Mr. India. In conversation with him.


"I began modelling during my college days. Being a professional boxer under training since childhood is an advantage for me as I have the perfect body. for modeling too! My attitude is my strong point. I have never believed in settling for anything less than what I deserve. Modeling has never been just a career option for me; it is a passion. Else, giving equal attention to both these fields is a challenging task. Boxing gives you bruises and modelling demands you to look good for the camera!


My first modelling assignment was self discovery. I was like any other opportunist who wouldn't let go of a good opportunity in hand. I was a substitute for someone and it just happened to work in my favour when the model couldn't make it to the shoot! When I looked into the camera for the first time, I wasn't directed on how to pose. It came naturally to me. My versatility as a model and being able to interpret the needs of the photographer works in my favour.


About the pageant, I aim for the stars. Rubaru Mr. India is the most reputed pageant for men. It can open up new avenues for my modeling career as the benchmark it has established is very high. Being a part of this pageant makes me proud and I have been preparing myself for this since last year. My fitness regime is challenging. Since I am a boxer, a good body has never been a problem. I have early morning boxing training and rigorous gym sessions in the evening. To maintain the body, diet plays an important role. This is the most challenging part!! To choose healthy food when you're starving!! Discipline plays an important role here. Pushing yourself beyond limits even when your body is sore is tough.


My perseverance, hard work, confidence and positivity make me a great choice for winner.  It will also give me a platform to make my voice heard — I wish to create awareness about the importance of the girl child. The sensitisation needs to be done at every level: in schools, colleges, offices, government etc. Particularly, in rural and backward areas where sex ratio is poor. We need to eliminate it from the roots of our society.  The stigma attached to the birth of a girl child needs to be removed. We need to send out the message that a girl child is not a liability but an asset"
