Actor Siddharth Shukla has always been a winner. Did you know that before lifting the Bigg Boss trophy last year, he also won the title of World’s Best Model in 2005? On Sidharth Shukla’s 40th birthday on Saturday, let’s go back in time 15 years to meet the actor with much longer hair and an innocent glint in his eyes.
Siddharth was only 24 years old when he won the title in a competition in Turkey. She walked down the ramp in a classy suit and even a bathing suit that fitted her well. He wore his hair a little longer back then and we wondered what it would take to encourage him to try that style one more time.
Speaking of the victory, Siddharth had previously said in an interview with Telly Chakkar: “It was a feeling of great pride, especially as I represented my country there. I also say that I was representing my country there, as everyone in that foreign country addressed me as the Indian child. This clearly said that he was not Siddharth Shukla, but was an Indian in a foreign country. That moment was indeed a very special moment in my life, as I was able to represent my country in a small way through this and finally took the label home with me. Back home, I received a warm welcome from everyone. The phone calls kept coming and so did the offers. In the middle of modeling, acting happened. I am not a trained actor, but I am of the opinion that one learns in a more practical way and that is exactly how I have learned. “
Look at the photos of the event:
In addition to winning the 13th season of Bigg Boss, Siddharth is also known for starring in hit shows like Balika Vadhu and Dil Se Dil Tak. The actor has appeared in multiple music videos lately, one of which featuring him with Bigg Boss co-contestant Shenaaz Gill has become the most popular.
