My career as a model can wait but currently my services as a doctor are much needed and as an Indian doctor, it is my paramount duty and responsibility to help my nation. My duty to my nation is much more important than any modelling assignment.”
Often referred to as the most handsome doctor in India, Gaurav Sharma began his journey as a model while he was pursuing his degree in MBBS.
