Make fitness your routine: Mr. World 2016, Model, Actor, Hyderabadi, Rohit Khandelwal

Failure is a process. When you fail, don’t take it to heart and keep trying, said Rohit Khandelwal, a celebrity speaker while addressing the gathering at Global Impact Summit 2022 which is currently underway at Woxsen University at Kamkol, Munipally Mandal near Sangareddy.

Being a Hyderabadi, it is my proud privilege to visit such a lovely campus of Woxsen University, he said

Then he shared his journey. Being from the Marwadi family it was not all that easy to get into the entertainment industry, he announced. I had my share of ups and downs and struggles.

With a lot of fire in my belly, I reached Mumbai to become a model. Then Mr India was followed by Mr World. I went to Mumbai, a Mecca of opportunities without many expectations. I didn’t even have the suggestible height to participate in the Mr India contest. The only motivating factor to participate in the contest was when there was nothing to lose, then why should I not try?. And that made me what and where I am today, Rohit explained.

Soon I realised that you can’t make a mansion out of modelling. It is only a part-time job. Then I shifted my focus on my acting career.

Today I have Mr World 2016 title, a movie about to be released. A musical album is just out and a web series is on the anvil, he shared.

Shahrukh Khan is my inspiration. But, Amitabh Bachchan is my role model, Rohit announced. Even at such an age and experience, Mr. Bachchan lands up at the set on time or even before time. There is a lot to learn from him, he told his house packed audience.

About grooming, he said fitness is very important. Make fitness your routine. It is good for longevity. You are happy when you are fit, he told the young participants in the hall.

When asked how he handled failures, Rohit said, failure is a process to success. When you make an unsuccessful attempt, don’t make it to heart. And keep trying.

Speaking about mental health he said, sound in the Mind is sound in the body. When you are low, unsound mentally ask for health without hesitation, he advised youth.

He also showcased his dancing talent by stepping to his recently released album along with some volunteers
