Rubaru Mr India contestant Balaji aspires to represent the country one day. As a contender from Chennai, he is living the dream. In conversation.


"I began modeling in 2015 when I was scouted by a coordinator. I was in second year of college and though modeling was a childhood passion, I had planned to pursue it after higher studies. But fate had other plans!! I was scouted and within few days we were shooting for a new clothing brand. The shoot took place at a waterfalls on the outskirts of Chennai and at the beach. Till this day, I cherish memories of that assignment. It was fun. It made me change my career path. Since then there is no looking back. What makes me a good model? My confidence and the way I look in front of the camera. Face, body… they don't matter. What matters is how you bring life to the concept.


Once I established myself as a model, I had a burning desire to represent India overseas and make my country proud! That's the primary reason I participated in Rubaru Mr India. To be frank, I don't call preparing for the pageant, training! I call it my lifestyle — the lifestyle of being fit, looking good, being attractive inside out! For fitness, you need dedication and consistency; to look good, you need to eat healthy, use proper skin and hair products. You should know how to groom yourself, how to do hair and make up! And, finally, be a gentleman!! I believe I have what it takes to be Rubaru Mr India i.e. confidence, dedication and humility.


I take the title as a huge responsibility. It's not just about how the title will affect my life; winning the pageant will help me spread awareness about causes that affect us all, on the global map. I strongly believe every child has a right to live his or her life and everyone is born equal. And it is the duty of each one of us to help save the girl child. Personally, I spread awareness about the importance of saving the girl child and educate everyone on equality."
