Karan Oberoi is Redefining Masculinity in the Age of Metrosexual Men

In India, boys become men when they ride their first Royal Enfield motorcycle. A cult classic, the Royal Enfield has defined masculinity for generations of Indian men. So you can imagine, how much attention the male model sitting on top of the bike gets! For those of you who know the face, but do not know the name – he is Karan Oberoi.

A Delhi-born, Mumbai-based model with an impressive portfolio of over 300 fashion shows and countless campaigns with prestigious brands, Karan is well established within India’s modelling circuit.

While the fashion industry loves him for his dedication and hard work, brands like him for the old-fashioned manliness he exudes. Today’s economy is tilted towards attracting millennial men comfortable with facials, K-beauty and super-skinny jeans, betting on old-world ruggedness is something of a risk – unless the model is Karan.

With his uber-fit, lean physique and rugged looks, he seems to do the impossible very effortlessly – appeal to people across generations. In the crowded marketing arena where imperfections are ironed out by either makeup or photoshop, Karan stands out because he looks like a boy from your neighbourhood, but with an unbelievable muscle-packed body; well, that is exactly what he is.

Known as a fitness model, Karan is perfectly placed to enter the international world of fashion and has already worked with global names such as Lamborghini and Reebok. With a career graph that permanently points upwards, we hope to see much more of him soon!

Words cannot do justice to Karan.  If you want to know more about him and his work, then we suggest you head over to his Instagram account for a quick browse.
