High-profile names have been published in the magazine include top models, actresses and singers Priyanka Chopra, Ujjwala Raut[6], Nicole Scherzinger[7], Olga Kurylenko[8], Kelly Brook[9], Maria Sharapova[10] and Padma Lakshmi[11].

FHM India recently changed its focus from some random celebrity shoot to concept based celebrity shoot; this move gave them an edge over its competitor which is clearly visible on Apple Store and Google Play Store where they have approximately 5,00,000+ downloads which is more than 20 times as compare to their competitors.

FHM India claims to have 10,00,000+ reach per month.



The magazine began publication in 1985 in the UK under the name For Him Magazine and changed its title to FHM in 1994 when Emap Consumer Media bought the magazine, although the full For Him Magazine continued to be printed on the spine of each issue.

FHM was published by NGPL, from its inaugural issue up to the July 2010 issue. From August 2010 to March 2015, a publishing company out off Delhi published FHM and there after TCG Media took the charge of FHM in India. Bauer Media shut down FHM & Zoo in UK in early 2016 along with some major license editions in few countries. TCG Media Limited decided to continue publishing FHM India with consent from Bauer Media. TCG Media Limited is headquartered in New Delhi and also has offices in Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Bengaluru.[12]

The magazine was launched with the October 2007 issue with Ujjwala Raut[3] - India's most successful overseas supermodel [4][5] on the cover.
