Raqesh Vashisth (Rakesh Bapat)
Raqesh Vashisth, an Indian Actor was born on 1st September 1978, in Mumbai as Rakesh Bapat. Brought up in the city of Pune, his passion for Cinema and the glamour world found root. He met me in 1995 through his mother and started his grooming and preparation for the Industry with me. The initial focus was the world of Modelling. Intensive work on personality development and awareness of the industry gave fruit when in 1998 with a baby step in the industry he won the very first Kodak Mr Photogenic Contest judged by Mr Ashok Salian and Ms. Meher Jessia. This starting point gave no reason to look back and in the coming months from being Mr Pune to winning the first runner up title at a very memorable event held in Kolkata the Grasim Mr INDIA Pageant including bagging the best dressed Male title (wardrobe courtesy: Deepak Shah of More Mischief), he went on to bag the Mr Intercontinental title in Halle, Germany in 1999.
Soon after his return to India he was seen in the Wrigley's chewing gum television commercial which was followed by the famous “ Kaun Banega Crorepati” themed television commercial for Colgate.
His elegant charm, boyish smile, chocolate hero dashing looks and metro sexual masculine elegance and ability to capture the character he plays to the “T” has built him a fan following that look forward to his performances over the years.
