Mr India Rohit Khandelwal is Mr World 2016! while Mexico and Puerto Rico took third and second place respectively. Our Very own Kevin was flying the Kenyan flag high emerging top 5 and representing Africa by being the only African who made it this far. We are so proud! The Mister World competition is a pageant sponsored by the Miss World Organization. The competition is biennial and was founded in 1996. And tonight on the 19th of July, the month-long search for “The world’s most Attractive Man” finally came to its conclusion at the Mr. World 2016 grand finale held in Southport, UK. This coveted title was not awarded solely on the basis of the oiled looks of the 47 hunks, who had assembled in this attractive British coastal city for the event who for over two weeks have been competing in a variety of disciplines.
26 year old Rohit is an actor and TV personality from the Southern Indian city of Hyderabad. Describing himself as a dreamer and believer, he is intent on forging a successful career in front of the camera, but also plans on studying to move behind the camera and make his own films. Aside from his acting, Rohit loves to keep fit, play sports and travel. His favourite cuisine includes indian sweet dish Gulab Jamuns, and Dosa, a south Indian pancake.
After winning the title, Rohit said
“I feel so privileged and humbled to be Mr World 2016. I would like to thank all my fans and all the people who have been giving me all their blessings. It is only your love and support that has been my inspiration to win Mr World 2016. It has been an amazing journey to this point, and I cannot wait to see what happens next.”
Congratulations Rohit !
