Hunk Harsh’s Exclusive Interview With Men’s Guide India Magazine
We were thrilled when we got an opportunity to interview Harsh and being the darling that he is, he agreed to divulge some personal details about him and some awesome tips for men and his followers.
Here are some highlights from our exclusive interview with Hunk Harsh:
Q) How was your childhood? Were you a naughty kid or a quiet one?
I was born and raised in Mumbai. I feel I’m a very silent person since my childhood. Someone who talks very little. I mostly like to be with myself. During my childhood, I had a great interest in sports, ‘Karate’ was something I was keen to indulge in.
Q) What was your experience during your college days?
I qualified with BSC (IT), and during my college days I remember, I was the only one who used to take an interest and part in dramas, plays, and other extra-curricular activities. Gradually, I started loving stage performances in college events and short films.
Eventually, I got the opportunity to do print shoots during my college days and I used to do it with very less income. I belong to a middle-class family, so, I hardly use to get any pocket money to deal with my daily expenses.
Did You Know?
During his college days, to make some side income, Hunk Harsh started working part-time on a toy shop counter, then a cyber center, and kept it hidden from his parents.
Q) How did you get into the profession of YouTube and content creation?
After completing BSCIT successfully, I started working in the IT sector, but I never had an interest in it. Actually, I never enjoyed that routine to rush daily from 10 to 6, working for 8 hours, every day same routine. I used to get many compliments for my style and looks. Several times, my friends used to take suggestions from me to enhance their looks, like hair care, style, and personality-related things, and even I use to love sharing and helping with tips, tricks, and DIY with them.
So I just thought to come up on YouTube and share on it. Initially, I started making motivational videos by doing voice-overs, as I didn’t have that confidence to face a camera and not even a good phone to start with. Later on, I tried putting my videos on Fashion, Style, Grooming, Hairstyle, Fitness, Personality Development, Men’s Lifestyle, and so on.
Slowly and gradually my viewers started increasing. I started receiving a lot of daily messages and emails, for which I thank all viewers for showing so much love and support. I feel so much blessed.
Q) What were the challenges that you faced in the early days of your career?
Initially, I faced a lot of challenges, as I did not have a camera or even a good phone to make a proper video, but I didn’t give up, and I made 150K subscribers by using the same old phone that I had. Indeed, no one supports anyone in their struggling period, one has to face too much criticism and the same thing happened with me.
Lack of support and too much criticism. Even some of my friends use to make fun of me and few used to think, that I am just passing my time. I just want to say that ‘BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. THE MOMENT YOU START BELIEVING IN YOURSELF, YOU WIN HALF THE BATTLE.
Q) What was the turning point of your career as a famous YouTube star?
YouTube has changed my life a lot. I have been connected with many good people in my life. When I got connected with global brands and got featured on their ads, I felt that YES, I have achieved something and there are many more achievements to come my way. I never bragged of whatever I had or have, Instead, I always feel thankful for it.
Q) What is your daily routine for content creation?
I do a lot of things in my daily routine to add to my content creation like practicing Photo-shoots, Photo editing, music editing, scriptwriting, which are my interest and ultimately part of my content creation.
Q) What message do you want to give to men who are insecure about their looks?
I receive messages daily on my Instagram & YouTube, that they need suggestions, tips tricks to improve their looks, personality, texture, and I find them to be too much insecure with their looks.
I feel very bad for them, bad not because they are having problems with their looks, but because they feel so insecure about their looks and they compare themselves with others and judge themselves. I still remember my initial days when I had neither looks nor personality. I also did the same mistake with myself.
I will just say to my viewers that never ever compare yourself to others. Almighty, has created everyone beautiful in their original form, you just have to maintain yourself and take a little care of yourself.
Even I always try to bring the best tips, tricks, and DIY which are very helpful and supportive to improve yourself through my videos by following it. But never ever judge or compare yourself to others and don’t keep yourself demotivated.
I am telling you all this as my brothers. It may take a little time, but slowly and gradually you will see a great difference and best results in you, with a little trust in yourself.
Q) What are your future plans? Any new projects that you are working on?
I just want to reach maximum people and bring change in them, by helping them to meet their best version, for that I am working hard to bring unique and effective content. And, I am also working on many projects that you all will come to know about soon.
Q) How different is your life now as compared to the one before you became a YouTuber?
As a YouTuber, I feel very much structured, that I have, such a platform, where I can reach many people to help and support them. I cross many peoples who greet me very nicely click photos with me, I feel so blessed, that I am adding value in others’ life and make them happy. I got an opportunity to connect with many peoples, brands. Being a YouTuber, I have learned a lot from them.
Q) What is the side of Hunk Harsh that many people are not aware of?

Many times, I receive messages on YouTube, Instagram and I try to reply to many of them, but I am not able to reply to everyone. Some get missed, but I try to reach many.
Some people must be thinking that I‘m arrogant, but it’s not like that my friends. You all can meet me anytime and even I would like to interact with you all. I would just describe myself in three words as a simple, private, performer.
