Aditya Alluri, a 24-year-old male model from Bangalore defines his modeling career as a ‘sweet twist of fate’. “I never ever saw myself as a male model. I actually dreamed of being a police officer when I was a child,” Aditya tells us, smiling warmly.
Aditya is the first member from his family to pursue a career outside the family forté of land realty. Originally from the temple town of Bhimavaram in Andhra Pradesh’s West Godavari cultural heartland – Aditya also hopes to someday be a top-rated star in Tollywood (The Telugu film industry).
“To me beauty is all about the right attitude. It comes naturally to some people and it doesn’t to others. You can be physically beautiful, but if you can’t work your charm… it’s almost like you’re wasting your god-given talent,” Aditya explains.
Aditya also has a quirky adventurous side and hopes to make use of it someday. “I would love to be featured in an adventure-based show, that would be so much fun,” says Aditya, who also admits to having a huge-weakness for red meat.
With a very clean and chic perspective on grooming and fashion, Aditya also indulges in Indian-made khadi fabric when he can and admits to having a soft corner for demure, simple and honest people.
Aditya is a 100% confirmed beach baby and loves catching the surf when he can. His favourite beach-side destination is Anjuna in Goa and Galle in Sri Lanka. “I also like Dubai for how well it’s organized and the party-scene there is intense,” concludes Aditya.
