Abhishek Ohri is pursuing MBA and theatre lessons, modeling and acting. Meet the Delhi contestant of Rubaru Mister India.
''I joined Barry Jones Academy Of Acting during college following which I began taking up modelling assignments. The way I look at it — the word modelling evokes a perception of "glamour" but I feel it is a very challenging field and not everyone is fortunate enough to make a mark. My first assignment, an advertisement for HelpAge India, had a huge impact on me. It was about an old society guard who takes care of everyone and I, being an empathetic youngster, surprises him with a birthday cake. Respecting and loving elders is taught to all of us right from childhood irrespective of religion, caste and creed. I felt so connected with the ad and that day I appreciated how important is for us to care for the elderly. Do you know how much love and attention old people crave from their near and dear?
Speaking of modeling, attitude is a little thing that can make a huge difference. Our attitude can change the course of every situation. I feel my attitude is my biggest strength and that makes me a good model. Rubaru Mister India just happened to me along the way; I never planned to compete on such a platform. Yet, here I am, doing intensive physical training twice a day. My morning starts with cardio session for weight loss and heavy weight training, functional training and cross fit in the evening. Apart from exercise and strict diet, I am working on my diction, looks, and promptness in answering questions. The day gets very challenging as I am covering each aspect required to emerge a winner!
I feel should be the chosen one because I have everything Rubaru Mr India requires — passion, hard work, smart work, EQ, ability to influence, leadership qualities and a vision. Winning this pageant would enable me to make a difference which I might not be able to do otherwise. Rubaru Mister India has already given me so much confidence; winning it would definitely make a big, positive difference to my life!''
