Rajeev Singh, my fav Indian male model. he was one of the hottest male models in Mumbai. winner of gladrags, winner of manhunt - or runner up or something. he fell off the grid a while ago and we miss him. he was crazy hot.
Rajeev Singh catapulted to fame when he became the first Asian Model to win the International Manhunt 2001 in Beijing. Rajeev never had in his wildest dream dreamt that he would take up modeling as his career. Hailing from Jaipur, Rajasthan, Rajiv was involved in his family business and a business trip took him to Europe where he worked for an import company dealing in artifacts for three years. Then Rajeev joined his family exports business, and while in Europe, began modeling for the famous clothing brand NEXT, more as a hobby than a profession.
His smart, dashing looks and great physique was enough to give him the fame. His colleagues and friends advised him to contest for the manhunt title. They were right, as he won the Gladrags Manhunt, which sent him off to China to compete in the International Manhunt. This singular achievement put him one up on mega models Dino Morea, John Abraham and Rajat Bedi who, though did a commendable job, could only manage the runners up status in the contest. Rajiv has done print ads for Clinic All Clear, London Pilsner, Vivaldi Shirts, Moustach Jeans and features in TV Commercials of All Clear, London Pilsner.
Ever since there is no looking back for this handsome hunk as he features in almost all the leading fashion shows held in India. Rajiv was one of the models chosen to participate in The Lakme India Fashion Show 2002 for a host of fashion designers including Ritu Kumar, Tarun Tahiliani, Aki Narula, Rohit Bal, Rocky S, J J Vallaya and Monisha Bajaj. The current title also gets him international modeling assignments for three years in Europe and Asia. Presently, he is gearing up for a rampage on the international runway.
