Photos: When Maharashtra's CM-elect Devendra Fadnavis was a model for Nagpur's garment store
Photographer Vivek Ranade says he roped in the minister to appear in ads for his clients eight years ago.
Maharashtra's CM-elect Devendra Fadnavis once had other interests apart from politics. The 44-year-old minister who has been the President of BJP's Maharashtra unit was once a model for a garment store in Nagpur.

Photographer Vivek Ranade revealed that he roped Fadnavis for his clients a long time ago. The minister's friends were equally instrumental in giving him a breakthrough into the world of modelling. His friends pushed him into the field which resulted in his photos finding a place on the billboards in Maharashtra.

A few photos of Fadnavis show him posing in a bright red patterned shirt and wearing a grey sweatshirt. He also seems to have appeared in an ad where he poses as a chef. But these are photos from eight years ago. He is now only seen in plain shirts and kurtas in keeping with his image as a politician.
