The poolside at Hotel Taj Chandigarh on Tuesday afternoon was overtaken by the shutterbugs as a bevy of beauty pageant winners preened and posed for them. Leading the way was former beauty queen Bir Kaur Dhillon (winner of Mrs India Globe 2013) who is currently the director of Mrs India Beauty Queen (MIBQ) pageant.

Dhillon, who is based in Vancouver, Canada, also steers the Mr India Manhunt International contest (formerly led by Maureen Wadia) and was in Chandigarh to introduce the winners for 2016 and their future plans. 

“Ludhiana’s Aditi Swaraj Sharma is the winner of the Mrs India Globe 2016 title. Subsequent to her winning the title, Aditi went on to represent India at the Mrs Globe 2016 finals held in China last year,” informed Dhillon.

Mrs India Globe 2016 saw Shalini Sood of the US being crowned first runner-up. “She was also crowned Mrs India United Nations International 2016 and will be going to Jamaica in May this year for the international competition,” informed Dhillon.

Delhi’s Sushma Bharti is the second runner-up at the MIBQ 2017 pageant while Hyderabad-based Abhimanika Yadav clinched the third place and would be going for the finals of Mrs Asia Pacific Universe later this year.

“I have always felt that such competitions aren’t just about winning. It helps give a platform to the talented and being married shouldn’t be a road block. In fact, we have always got an overwhelming response for the Mrs India auditions,” said Dhillon.

The winners who were present for the event admit that more than the exposure it’s the grooming, training and overall experience that they are looking for. “For me it was a chance to pursue modelling in India and also explore my roots,” said Shalini Sood, the pageant’s international contestant from US.
