Lauded by the Filmfare Magazine as ‘Hottie of the Fortnight’, Karan Oberoi (KO) was just another regular Delhite with an MBA degree before entering the world of modelling.
KO was born and brought up in New Delhi. After completing his B.Com from SGGS college of commerce, he went on to pursue PG diploma in mass media from Delhi University followed by an MBA. He even worked as a graphic designer for a while, but life had other plans for him.
His foray into the field of modelling:
Modelling happened quite randomly to him. While working as a graphic designer for an advertising agency, he got an ad where he was supposed to model. Karan’s job was like any other corporate job. He was working more than 12 hours a day, and deep down he yearned to get rid of the monotony. When this opportunity presented itself, he grabbed it, and he has never turned back since then.
Making his mark:
His career took off after he got featured on the cover of world’s leading fitness magazine, Men’s Health, as well as India’s leading fitness magazine, Health &Nutrition. This began his association with known brands. Other than that, he has also been featured in the launch campaign for RE – the accessories brand by Royal Enfield. He also has been the face for Fashion Big Bazar brand for 2 consecutive years. Karan has walked various fashion shows for brands like Aldo, Peter England, Jack & Jones, Lamborghini, FTV,Levis, Lakme and GQ fashion & has starred in Spunk by Pantaloons. He has also appeared in a lot of television commercials for brands such as Japanese automobile brand Isuzu DmaxVCross, Royal Enfield Thunderbird x and Apparel. In October 2017, Filmfare called him ‘Hottie of the fortnight’. He has been listed as one of the top fitness models in the country by Hindustan Times Brunch Magazine.
A model with the mantra ‘the fitter the better’, Karan is making his mark as someone who offers more than just a pretty face and brands have recognized this in him.
