Karan Oberoi ‘KO’

Karan Oberoi ‘KO’ used to play a lot of cricket while he was very young and had a dream to represent India though being a model was never on the cards at that time. Karan was also trained under top Indian International cricketers such as Chetan Sharma, Gursharan Singh, and Maninder Singh and had also participated in MRF fast bowling academy. He was the opening batsman and fast opening bowler who used to bowl at the speed of 140 km per hour which was a very big deal. Amrit often used to tell Karan how Sidhu paaji inspires all the young generation cricketers by offering such lines which were not just motivating but perhaps soul-shaking. 

Karan also admits while he was growing up, he was disciplined and extremely unfocussed who didn’t know what to do much with his life till he heard this inspirational line which changed his life and further made him Mr. Sidhu’s fan. This further motivated KO to the extent that he managed to get inside a popular cricket show for NDTV which was presented by Navjot Sidhu and Ajay Jadeja back in the year 2005.

He met Mr. Sidhu shook his hand and told him how much he admired him, Karan told him that he aspires to become a cricketer and his words always motivate him to strive for it. Sidhu Ji told him it’s possible and quoted “to be an extraordinary human you need to work extra than any ordinary man does”, this motivated Karan once again to keep working harder to achieve his goals. Karan still remembers the quote and believes in it very strongly. Today KO might not have become a cricketer but has achieved stardom as a top fitness and fashion model.  Recently KO commented on Sidhu’s post and mentioned in a comment ‘you are my inspiration’ which shows he really means it. India’s top male model Karan Oberoi also follows Mr. Sidhu on Instagram and wishes him the very best for all his endeavors.
