Model Jitesh Singh Deo, who hails from Lucknow, bagged the title of Peter England Mr India 2017.

And in a year that Miss India Manushi Chillar brought back the Miss World crown, Deo is already thinking about the Mr World title.

As Deo sets out on the long road to Mr World 2020 -- the contest is biennial and Vishnu Raj Menon, the previous Mr India, will contest for the 2018 title -- we explore what makes him tick.

 

This was his sophomore year as a Mr India finalist.
He had also made the cut in 2015.
