The world of fashion and fitness modeling is a multi-billion dollar industry where many enter every year but very few become successful, one such name we have today is Karan Oberoi. Karan Oberoi who is also popular by his nickname that is also his name’s initials KO is one of the leading models from India. KO started his career with an ad agency after completing his double masters ie. MBA and PG diploma in journalism and mass media almost a decade back. This young man while working on that corporate ad desk didn’t know anything about modeling till he got that one splendid break while doing his job.
We find so many models everyday entering this industry with different shape, sizes, colors, and talent, still, in the midst of all this, we found Karan “KO” Oberoi stand out. He might not be the tallest, just 6 feet, might have a scar on his face, might not be very fair but he has something to be talked about and can be described as Mr. unconventionally handsome and an attractive personality that distinguishes him among the crowd. Moreover, while I was looking at his pictures on the internet besides following him on social media handles since a long time, initially I thought maybe he’s an actor that defines without any doubt that Mr. Oberoi has nothing short that can make him an actor or in fact a superstar overnight.
Almost a decade back this handsome male model from India started his career as a model, since then he has starred in numerous fashion shows, featured on the cover of leading magazines like Men’s Health and part of reputed fashion magazines and top fashion and fitness brands. His portfolio includes names like Reebok, Isuzu, Royal Enfield bikes and riding apparels, fashion big bazaar, British Nutrition, and Viva Fitness. Today he is celebrated as an established model who still has much more to give.

Everything you need to know about him
Being born in the upper-middle class and highly educated family his roots are still the same, Karan, besides being a top male model enjoys reading books in his free time rather watching movies. He is also a holder of two double postgraduate degrees which is also a big exception and we have never seen a model like him. Karan has not just done modeling in all these years but also has shared a lot of awareness regarding health, lifestyle, fashion, modeling and how to get them all.
One very interesting fact about him is that he is a big-time shopaholic, he can shop for anything and everything. He can’t resist buying a beautiful thing he might see. Despite his clothes, he loves to shop for home decor; he loves quirky stuff with an elegant tinge to it.
Like any other guy, Karan has a fetish for shoes and watches. He just can’t resist a good looking shoe, he tries to match up to his shoes with his outfits on a daily basis. We think that is very natural for a fashion model to do so.
One thing that no one knows about him is that he had his very first real relationship when he has 25, before that he was just too busy enjoying his college life. You might think, with such good looks he would be a playboy, but to our surprise, he is extremely opposite to that, he is extremely shy and takes time to open up. He respects women and chivalry is always up to his sleeves.
While growing up he was a big fan of Michael Jackson and wrestler Hit Man Heart.
