In the highly competitive digital world that we live in, celebrities are a dime-a-dozen. Only a few manage to sustain the fame that comes their way. It is no different in the modelling world, a cut-throat industry that churns out new ‘faces’ every year. Very few manage to capture public attention and linger on, and Karan Oberoi (KO) is a rare example of that.
As a successful fashion and fitness model, Karan Oberoi lives up to the nickname bestowed upon him by his industry counterparts – KO. The moniker is short for both, his name and the ‘Knock Out’ that he has grown to become. What started as an affectionate ‘nick’ name of sorts is now a tag that Karan Oberoi feels very lucky to have. With a killer body developed over years of strict training and a chiseled face that renders many a female (and male!) heart aflutter, Karan Oberoi definitely lives up to it!
Having set foot in the industry a decade ago in a chance encounter, Karan Oberoi (KO) left no stone unturned in his quest to become the best. And the results speak for themselves. He has built a body of work that boasts of several milestones – having graced the covers of top magazines like Men’s Health and Health & Nutrition, walking the ramp for industry stalwarts like Rohit Bal, Shantanu & Nikhil and Rajesh Pratap Singh, countless features in HT and other leading publications as well as awards like ‘Best Body’ at the Mr. India International contest and the ‘Youth Icon Model Of The Year’ at the Global Leadership Awards of 2018. He has made giant leaps in the online world as well, with an enviable following on both Facebook and Instagram, with a follower count soon to touch the coveted 1 million mark on the latter.
As someone who took an interest in health and fitness early on, he believes in leading by example, and has not touched cigarettes, alcohol or junk food in over a decade. So it came as no surprise when he was chosen to be brand ambassador for the international health supplement brand – British Nutrition.
Karan Oberoi (KO) is the classic example of how when one puts in effort and single-minded focus into achieving something, the stars align themselves to light one’s path to success. The next bastion he wants to conquer is the silver screen, a task he has already reinforced by completing a stint at the famous Actor Prepares Acting School owned by veteran actor Anupam Kher. Going by his past record of successes, it seems like this is going to be in the bag as well. All we can say is “Watch Out Bollywood! A Star is on the way!”
