When it comes to popular sports in India, cricket clearly maintains absolute domination. Badminton or football may also come to mind. However, very few know that the Brahma’s people can boast of a legion of great bodybuilders. Overlooked by the government and huge audiences, Indian Hulks are making waves in Asia as well as on a global scale winning the most prestigious contests such as Mr. Asia, Mr. World, and Mr. Universe. Get to know five incredible Indian athletes who flaunt iron abs and buff biceps just like the world’s bodybuilding mega stars.
Thakur Anoop Singh
The handsome ex-pilot’s bulging muscles leave men green with envy and make ladies want to have babies with him. The Mr. World 2015 was forced to leave his initial profession in 2008 when he was only 18 years old. The global recession had devastated the airline industry and even more experienced pilots lost their jobs. As it turned out a few years later, it was all to the good. Thakur dedicated more time to his gym sessions and put his luck to a test in bodybuilding competitions as well as modeling contests.
The ripped hunk with a heart-warming smile and playful eyes just couldn’t stay off the radar of casting agencies for too long. Eventually, he landed the role of Dhritarashtra in the popular TV series Mahabharata in 2011. It was a truly life-changing experience as Thakur woke up to find himself famous all over the country overnight.
The actor and bodybuilder has no qualms about stripping off to display his hunky physique on his Instagram account. However, he looks just as stunning with his well-cut suit on.
