Sharing highlights about her modeling career, she says,”I am born model and bachpan se I’m nautanki (laughs). I used to act in front of mirror since childhood I told my parents about modelling and they immediately said yes because of my happiness. I felt so good that I can earn money too out of it. That’s how it all started. When I get up everyday in the morning I always think to do something new or productive that’s how I live my life.”
Founder Shweta Roy adds,”My vision is to give a platform, voice and identity to all the married women. “Pehchaan Meri” is my tagline and I have commenced this venture because I myself is an international pageant winner. This provoked a thought in me that I should take an initiative to put forth a platform wherein married women can reclaim their identity which they lost after marriage. I wanted to provide a platform for women who are willing to learn and explore themselves. The criteria is very clear, we are looking for a seeking spirit who is keen in learning. Beauty Pageant is about inner beauty regardless of outer appearance and how much you are exploring yourself. I think it has given that platform to many women.”
Co- founder Ranbir Roy continues,”I feel this is a platform for all kinds of women of different age, height and weight unlike other pageants. Hence, we thought to start with this cause in order to see women creating break through in their lives and becoming happy and confident about themselves.
