Who is he?
Ladies, brace yourselves! We are bringing to you the devastatingly good-looking Emmad Irfani, an ex-model and our nation’s answer to male fashion. Really, it does not get any better than this guy! Back in 2000, Emmad was practically forced into modelling by his aunt — God bless her — and went on to become one of Pakistan’s most prominent male models. In 2005, he won the ‘Best Male Model’ title at the Lux Style Awards. With an impressive line-up of designers backing him up, including Khaadi, Hang Ten and the much-coveted HSY, Emmad is now taking a hiatus from modelling and focusing on acting for a while. So ladies, keep a look-out for this drop dead gorgeous man’s next gig. Trust us, you won’t regret it!
Why we love him
In an industry obsessed with face value and 6-pacs, our gaze seldom goes past physical appearances but Emmad is pleasing to both the eye and the mind. With exceptionally great genes, booming sex appeal and charisma to match, Emmad is the sort of eye-candy Pakistan rarely gets to nibble on. This guy is living proof that sometimes, God does give with both hands and we just can’t wrap our heads around how beautiful he is!
Mind you, behind Emmad’s Greek god facade lies a deeply intellectual and dedicated man who has a need to excel in everything he does. Emmad is constantly in competition with himself, setting new goals and working towards them to mould himself into his own best version. Loyal, genuine, scrupulous and family-oriented by nature, Emmad is the complete package.
What you didn’t know about him
Emmad’s hates insecurity in people. He feels everyone is beautiful, one should pay no attention to others’ opinions and love themselves no matter what.
He has walked the ramp for various international designers as well, including Armani, Versace, Dior and Prada.
His favourite actor is Arjum Rampal. This make us wonder who would win if they’re pitted against one another on the ramp.
Emmad is an ardent sportsman! Though football and cricket are his personal favourites, he enjoys playing all sports and says he would’ve liked to be a sportsman had it not been for modelling. We don’t mind… so long as he maintains that killer body.
