Architect and model Aarush Shrivastav wants to carve a niche and what better way than Rubaru Mister India? Meet the contestant from Gwalior.
''I started modeling four years back when I shot for a clothing brand, Dennison. I cannot describe my happiness when the hoardings appeared at Indore Mall! And subsequently I shot for Myntra, Jabong and Snapdeal. I loved the experience and began working out to build my physique and began sharing photographs on social media; soon I began get modeling offers and that's pretty much how my career kickstarted. You know, I can't live a monotonous life . We all get one life so why not to make it worth remembering? I love experiencing new things and feel that when I die, people should know Aarush Shrivastav died today. Mainly, it feels really good when people stop and compliment me and say they see me as a role model.
What makes me a good model to work with? Of course, one must have an overall good personality but what also matters is your attitude because two things make a person — patience and positive attitude. Patience when you don't have anything and humbleness when you have everything. The pageant didn't happen overnight. I have been trying to participate since two years and I am really working hard to make the most of this opportunity — I have seen a lot of failure but I still won't give up! I am really training hard for this pageant. I have left all bad eating habits and am on a boiled food diet, pushing myself for hours in the gym, twice a day. And I'm working on my skills. Other than working on the pageant I also have to work on my job; it's a hectic schedule to deal with but still I am doing it. I dont compare myself with other contestants as I believe everyone has their own strengths. I will give my best to everything I do!
Being Mr. India is the dream all young men harbour. Who doesn't want to be the Mr. India? It's a glamorous thing! I really dont have an idea about how the title could affect my life, should I win it. If something is written in my fate, it will come and knock on my door, after this journey. It will also be a great platform to do something about a social cause; one can make people aware of it through social awareness programs, plays, seminars, skits in malls, advertising on TV and radio.''
