Indian television actor Thakur Anoop Singh, received gold medal at the World Body Building Championship 2015, Bangkok.
Anoop had earlier been a runner up in Fit Factor, A prominent model competition in India. His great physique and impressive performance landed him the role of Dritarashtra in popular television adaptation of Indian epic Mahabharata.
It was surprising to find out that despite his obvious good looks, neither modeling nor acting were his first career choices. Anoop’s first career choice was as a pilot. Despite a valid pilot license, he turned to other career options when the global recession hit Indian airline industry in 2008.
On arriving at India, Anoop commented on this wonderful accolade.
“Hope my win helps Indians believe in the value of fitness. We can really make India proud,” he said.
