“I am feeling really really proud. I had always dreamt of this and now that this dream has finally come true I feel I am the happiest man. But now I am focusing on winning the title of Mr World 2014.” stated Prateik Jain post his win.
Prateik Jain, who won the first edition of Provogue MensXP Mr India 2014, is inspired by Arjun Rampal and says he looks up to him as an example to be successful.
“Arjun Rampal has got an amazing charisma and he is very charming. I take inspiration from how he carries himself. He is a perfect example for me,” Prateik said.
The twenty five year old from Bangalore left his job as an investment banker to pursue his love for martial arts. He says the shift from a high-earning profession to a glamorous one wasn’t easy.
“I was not into modelling before. I worked as an investment banker, but then I realised it was not my cup of tea. Then I started martial arts and then that passion turned into a profession. I used to fight a lot while training and this ended up in getting me injuries. Doctors advised me bed rest for six months, but my strength and will power made me follow my dream,” stated a very confident and upbeat Prateik Jain.
