Upen Patel, born on August 16, 1980 in the UK, is an Indian male model.
Upen has made it big in the world of fashion. He has modeled for brands such as Hugo Boss, Paul Smith and Zegna and today is a global name on the fashion front. Currently, he has bagged some big campaigns with names like Wendell Rodricks, Vikram Phadnis (with Salman Khan) and Westside (with Yuvraj Singh).
Along with his family, he migrated to the UK from Uganda 23 years back where he began getting modeling offers immediately after graduating in Media Studies from West Herts College. Having shot Sun Sahiba Sun, his first remix video, Upen Patel believes he has taken his first step towards Bollywood.
Now in Mumbai, this hunk has been sent many filmi feelers from directors such as Mukesh Bhatt and Tanuja Chandra.
But Upen is in no hurry. He waits patiently for the right offer to come his way. So, for any filmmaker who is on the lookout for a fresh face with the right attitude, you know where to look.
