The Hindu College, New Delhi, recently felicitated one of its more famous alumni Arjun Rampal. The tall and handsome model-turned-actor graduated in economics and was given a certificate honouring all the work he put in during his three years there.
Rampal and Imtiaz Ali, the director of Jab We Met, were both at the college at the same time and reminisced with older students and teachers. During his college years, Imtiaz took part in college theatre. Rampal revealed that in the summer of 1990 he walked into college and mistakenly asked a senior to carry his luggage into the hostel. The actor was subsequently ragged for a long time and vowed never to rag his juniors in turn. Rampal is admittedly very much against ragging and considers it to be equal to a full-fledged crime.
Rampal was discovered by clothes designer Rohit Bal while hanging out with friends at a disco in Mumbai. He went on to taste success as India’s top male supermodel after Milind Soman.
