Connoisseur of beauty and fashion show enthusiasts can look forward to exclusive and exciting rounds of music, dance and talent display of beautiful people from all over the globe next year.
Reshab D Parikh Productions, which has branded itself as the organiser of the best and most popular beauty contest (Indianz) is bringing ‘Miss India Worldwide’ to Auckland in April 2014.
The first-time New Zealand event will have much more than beauty.
The company’s Director crosses swords with us objecting to our reports which indicate that his shows are ‘beauty pageants.’
“We have moved away from such a concept. Our industry partners have welcomed the transition that we have made from organising traditional pageants to a celebration of elegance and diversity. Miss Indianz is no more a brand name for beauty competitions. It is an annual event that gives an opportunity for a cross-section of people on stage to give vent to their talent, and to those in the audience to assimilate and appreciate our heritage,” he said.
Indian Newslink will publish details of Miss India Worldwide 2014 in its later issues.
On a related note, Miss Indianz 2013, held at Auckland Town Hall on September 14 was reportedly a resounding success, demonstrating the change of course.
“Our focus is not only to select a winner but also offer a range of opportunities for the participants,” he said.
Amreeta Goundar was crowned Miss Indianz 2013, while Raiya Courtier Sadhu and Smital Singh (from Auckland) were declared First and Second Runner-Up respectively.
The colourful programme comprised music and dances performed by a number of locally trained artistes, including those from Monisha School of Dance
