7 Bollywood Actors Who Should Have Stuck To Modeling
Posted On 9th July, 2014 @ 10:30 am by MTV EDITOR

Because some Bollywood stars are just best enjoyed when sizzling up the ramp.

Not to say that our movie industry would be able to survive in the absence of the eye candy that these major hunks provide, but for the sake of their personal and professional growth, these seven models would have perhaps been better off in the fashion industry: 

John Abraham

Don’t get us wrong; long as he is in a career line that involves plenty of posing in yellow trunks we aren’t complaining. However, there remains no denying that after a bright start in the industry with Jism and Dhoom, the former Gladrags Manhunt winner appears to have lost his mojo.

Dino Morea

We can only wish that this hunky model had taken the failure of his debut film, Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi, as an omen of what was to come; we’d have perhaps then been spared the trauma of watching him in Insaaf & Fight Club.

Upen Patel

The ramp may have loved him, but seeing as toned abs and pecs unfortunately aren’t the only tools needed for survival in Bollywood, Upen was gradually edged out of the industry.

Muzammil Ibrahim

Don’t remember this Gladrags Manhunt winner who made his Bollywood debut with Dhokha? There; we think we just made our point.

Rahul Dev

If chiseled bodies and killer looks were the only qualifications required to make it large in Bollywood, Rahul would no doubt be driving home with National Awards every other night. As it happens, Rahul hung around Bollywood for the better part of the past decade, before finally giving up and chasing his luck on the small screen.

Milind Soman

If you’re hunting for killer looks, spice and everything that isn’t nice, Milind Soman is your guy. If you’re looking for a model who’s got the acting chops as well, we suggest you look away.

Honorary Mention: Arjun Rampal

He’s been known to emote every now and then, when the mood strikes him, but after providing us hope with Rock On, Arjun appears to have renewed his affinity to the world of wooden acting with his last couple of releases leaving the box office unfazed.
