The new decade’s first Miss India contest is going to mark a new beginning. So, if you hunger for stardom like that of a young Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone, Pantaloons Femina Miss India will give you a chance.
Besides a shinny sash and a dazzling crown you can also win a chance to star in a film by Madhur Bhandarkar or Vipul Shah. Don’t believe it? But it’s true.
PFMI 2010 is heading towards a collaboration with Bollywood. And why not when most of the successful actresses in the industry are winners at Miss India contests, there are examples galore.
The CEO of Pantaloons, Sanjeev Agarwal is quoted as saying, “Pantaloons is proud of the new association which Pantaloons Femina Miss India is creating with established production houses in Bollywood, thus creating a definitive culmination to the journey of the contestant which starts with the entry to the pageant.”
Miss India contestants will have Anupam Kher, who also runs an acting school, as their acting guru. Choreographer Shiamak Davar will help them dance in a Bollywood style. Commenting on this latest development, Contestant Director and Fashion Director of PFMI 2010, Marc Robinson says, “This association with Bollywood has opened up an exciting avenue and we are excited about tapping talent and honing them to take the film industry by storm.”
Rest assured, new Priyankas and Aishwaryas are on their way?
