Hunky Haresh is a heart throb!

When Haresh Sood graduated with a Master’s degree in law from the University of Leicester he could hardly have imagined he would have ended up in the pages of a national glossy women’s magazine as one of the nation’s ‘20 hot men’!

Haresh is featured in the November issue of New Woman magazine in their 20 ‘hot men you can date’ feature.  

It states: “Each month we’re giving you the chance to win the ultimate first date with one of our favourite hot men”. Haresh, who lives in Nottingham and works in Derby, is featured as being single for four months and with a number to call if you wish to date him.

He said: “My sister entered me for the competition - I just filled the questionnaire out and forgot about the whole thing.

“It’s also cool that I am the only Asian, meaning, we are slowly getting represented! It’s also a bit of fun – and nice to be placed among professional TV artistes from Brookside and professional rugby and football players.

Haresh, who is Development Officer for the British Council of Disabled People in Derby, said the most romantic thing he had ever done was ‘flown to see a woman in another country.’

The 26-year-old Aquarian who is also an artiste, model and singer, enjoys swimming, wine tasting and foreign languages and  read LLB Law with Italian, and an LLM (Master of Law) in Higher European Legal Studies with Spanish and French and studied abroad for almost two and a half years on the courses with the University of Leicester in Spain, France, Italy and Australia.

Kate Turner from New Woman magazine said: “We run the 'Hot Men' feature every month and look for single men who stand out in both personality and looks. Haresh fitted the bill - he has wide ranging interests, was very honest in his answers and has great cheekbones! New Woman readers are interested in guys who not only look great, but have something to say for themselves too. I'm sure Haresh will get lots of phone calls!"
