Sahil Shroff dabbled in many careers before he made it as one of India’s top models. At one time or another, Shroff did his masters in information technology, pursued management studies in Australia and worked graveyard shifts as a bouncer in the nightclubs there. Finally, however, his enviable physique and ability to carry off clothes made him a hit in modelling circles.
Shroff has also done TV commercials for HCL, Tata Indica and Lux. And after a spell of acting and voice lessons, he eventually bagged a role in Farhan Akhtar’s Don 2.

Mumbai Indians’ anthem, before, during and long after the IPL.
Earth’s crowded and full of trash. Choose another planet.
