My parents were right in front of me.

When asked what pushed you to leave your career as a pilot and pursue acting/modeling/bodybuilding, Anoop Singh said, “I would like to correct that I am not a bodybuilder and neither did I win the competition in bodybuilding category. My category was that of a fitness/athletic physique where each contestant is supposed to perform a routine of 90 seconds in which he has to show his body, beauty, agility, symmetry, flexibility and strength element. I had to perform, that too twice-Pre-judging and finals! Having said that I am the only Indian who has achieved a gold medal in my category (fitness physique). So, people need to know the difference between the body building and fitness physique of which many are not aware of!”

In another interview with Catnews.com, Thakur Anoop Singh said that how he came into modeling leaving his career as an aircraft pilot. Anoop’s future in aviation industry appeared messy during 2008 global recession. Then 18-year-old Anoop tried his luck in modeling.

Thakur Anoop Singh is not born in Udaipur but all his ancestors including his grandfather Thakur Jagat Pratap Singh was born in Udaipur. Anoop is very close to Udaipur and Udaipur is very close to Anoop.
