Himanshu Shailey is Indian Model & Cricketer He was born in Delhi,(Lady Erwin hospital) and his roots belongs to Uttarakhand and punjab,as his mom(Gurcharan shailey) is from patyala punjab and father(Rishi shailey) is from shail(gauchar Chamoli).
He spent sometime in Gwalior (MP) with his grandmother(Kalpeshwari devi) while he was growing up as my parents were working.Now ,they both are retired and he live with them in Dilshad garden (Delhi)
Looking back he see myself as a kid who only had only one dream to that was to play(cricket )for India.well,that kid is still in there hoping for his dream to come true.
He started his journey on 9 April 2000 and ever since then its been the same routine(more or less)
He started of as Opener batsmen ,tried my hands in wicket keeping too and eventually turned into a Fast bowling all rounder (this was when i was 18)
Ever since the process of waiting for the state trials and giving the trials ,selections and rejections is on…
He came into notice of cricket people when he won
GATORADE SPEEDSTER TALENT HUNT 2009
to become India’s fastest bowler ,Where Wasim akram Sir coached he and asked his state Delhi to put him in the team and Thats how he got breakthrough in DDCA under 19 team,but he didn’t get the chance to play in the team.
Then 2012 when he won another talent hunt conducted by BCCI where bowler from all over India came to participate and he won that talent hunt again being the FASTEST bowler and being best in their criteria. He was selected for NATIONAL CRICKET ACADEMY and BCCI specialist academy,even attended INDIAN SENIOR TEAM CAMP(Bowling to sachin tendulakar and getting him bowled was one of the biggest moments).Once,he was bowling to yuvraj singh and he really liked him and call him for IPL PUNE WARRIOR SHORTLISTED guys
Its was going all great ,travelling with the team ,staying with the team ,sharing the dressing room and all stuff but all of sudden things changed and the talent hunt programme was shut and he got severely injured back to back ,cervical and back injuries ( that kept me away from cricket for a long time) it was irritating,depressing time & slipping out of my hands and he couldn’t do anything.That was the time when his parents and his friends helped me a lot (Nakul,Naveen,Ashish,Sachin,Shivangi)
He tried recovering from it but things were happening back to back next year he got typhoid at the times of trial,and after that year I again got jaundice next year at the times of trail back to back year by year he had neck injury,then he had ankle injury then he broke my wrist ,he had knee injury
Everything was happening one after other and it was like a never ending night mare,he look back I and he see all those sleep less nights in-fact he don’t want to recall that period,he entire personal life was disturbed and he had now clue to what be done
Thats when he started doing modeling and enrol himself into (American sports college of medicine)to distract and treat himself with his injuries (he is professional fitness trainer )and he enrolled him self in JONNY WALKER MISTER INDIA pageant 2016 and he won that all credit goes to ( Shikhar Siddhartha) my mentor.
He started modeling for famous names(Manish malhotra,Rohit Bal,rocky RS) and brand(Diesel ,lakme fashion week,amazin fashion week,many magazines,shirt films) ,made a name in the industry,he become FDCI OFFICAL MODEL (he still am),he went internationally to do shoots and project
