Damn; he is over 60’s and still got it!
The hottest silver fox of India; meet Dinesh Mohan who is making noise lately on internet for his hip style, good looks and whose beard, totally changed the game!
This 61 year old model will remind you that age is just a number; with strong jawline, silver mane,tonned body and impeccable sense of style is a treat to all women out there; he wears the lines on his face proudly and has not attempted to cover his grey hair, which has helped giving him “The Look.”
It didn’t take long before modelling agencies started to notice him; he has posed for many designer brands, commercials also featured on magazine covers including Vogue and have starred in several movies down in south.
He was last seen in film Bharat; starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.
Dinesh Mohan is known for his styled signature beard that he flaunts, ripped jeans and silver hair.
You’d have to be a killjoy, not to admire this man!
This handsome model hails from Delhi; and it doesn’t look he is slowing down anytime soon!
But as they say behind every successful man; there are lot of unsuccessful years; unspoken journey of lonely sufferings.
Dinesh Mohan used to work in education sector for Haryana Government, and this job kept him on his chair all day long due to which he ended up gaining lot of weight; he took voluntary retirement in 2004, “I have lived through some terrible things in my life, losing a loved one can trigger intense feelings of grief, I felt depressed almost all the time, blaming myself for my loved ones death.”
“ I was living in a black hole, empty, lifeless and apathetic; I sank into depression, stopped taking care of myself and kept piling on weight, all I did was sit on a couch and snack unhealthy food, the more weight I gained; the more uncomfortable I felt.”
“ I was so down on myself due to which my relationship with my sister and her husband suffered even more, as I was staying with them; so in this phase, I was bedridden and weighed around 130 kgs with health issues.” he shares with Storymakers.
One day my brother in law rushed into my room in anger; challenged me and said that I need to come out of this despair, which was poisoning me.
It was my sister and her husband who cheered me towards fitness.
In 2014, I started healthy diet and joined gym; I weighed myself weekly and after months of rigorous effort, I lost around 50 kgs and brought down my weight to 80 kgs, I was mentally exhausted; but I didn’t give up, “I felt exhilarated.”
Losing weight gave me courage to tackle my physical health too, explains the model.
A journalist next door, who intrigued the transformation; wrote an article about his dedication then an advertisement agency approached him for an audition, after looking at his pictures in a magazine.
“ My modelling career took off on January 2016, on my birthday, with my first shoot, and I never looked back again;” few years back, I feared, I would never pull myself back to normality, now I love my life and I am looking what’s through the next door for me.”
The model also shares, I receive lot of negative comments from strangers; who feel, at this age I should be at home; taking god’s name and not on the ramp.
Age has been made an almost a dirty word In this country, ageing is something positive, and everyone gets to do it, stop telling us that ageing is something really bad; I have embraced my experience and I love the way I am with each passing year, I am unique the way I am, and I prefer to stay that way; as long as I live I want to inspire people and motivate them.
“If only you are lucky, you will grow old and if you are exceptionally lucky; you will grow old like Dinesh Mohan”– he laughs
He stays active physically and mentally with the world around him at 61, Dinesh Mohan is competing with plenty of younger models in fashion industry, but he says; he feels no pressure to keep up.
“I get flattered when strangers stop me; take selfies and appreciate my fashion sense;” I think getting older is not such a bad thing, he giggles.
His rugged selfies and modelling photos have earned him more than 83,000 fans on Instagram.
His desire to represent, a new definition of ageing surpasses his humbleness; certainly Dinesh Mohan’s story from being nobody to being somebody is motivational and inspirational; ther’s no age to start anything from scratch, you just have to believe in yourself.
You don’t need to be young to make it!!
