Rinku Pahel. Former professional cricketer and fashion model from Haryana. Though he harboured dreams of being an ace sportsman who'd represent his country and succeeded in becoming state level cricketer, friends suggested the handsome athletic boy should try modelling.


"As a teenager, I never thought I would become a model and I never planned for that. I mainly focused on cricket but upon completing graduation in 2014, I took a break from sports and decided to try my luck when opportunity presented itself. One day, I went to watch a show at Amazon India Fashion Week, where I was praised by professionals from the world of fashion." From that point on the avalanche of requests began. Within two months, this 6’2" tall lad hit the catwalk at the age of 20 and his modelling career was underway even before his first portfolio was shot! In fact, he has done key ramp shows including Amazon India Couture Week and Lakme Fashion Week, and has shot for print and e-commerce campaigns within a span of 8 months.


On a personal level, he believes that working on six-packs in the gymnasium and getting a good portfolio shot alone cannot make anyone a model. To excel, one needs good communication, fit body, perseverance to work hard and a lot of contacts. According to Rinku Pahel, ."the best part of a career in modelling is that one gets the opportunity to travel and see the world, wear beautiful garments created by the best designers in the nation and meet artistic people from all walks. Today I'm enjoying this career which is running parallel with Civil Services Studies.." I wish him luck.
