“Miss India is a great platform and it is easy to get into Bollywood but right now we have more responsibilities on our head. People look up to us and idolize us but there are many more achievements that we have yet to score” says Shriya Kishore.
“It is a whole new life for us at the moment. After the winn, every step that we take and every move we make, we are being watched in a new light. We are having fun now and trying to make new friends. We have so much more to achieve, Bollywood is not the destination for us right now. We have already set our sights far ahead and for now it’s just the international pageant. We have yet to bring the crown home,” adds Pooja Chopra.
Currently the Miss India’s are re-defining beauty on the small screen with Bindass Live, a UTV venture. This is their first step into the glamour world wherein they will speak on topical issues in their own forthright manner. The show will conduct a daily dose of debates on youth-related issues like dating, relationships, peer pressure, parental pressure, social networking sites, the stress of exams and many more. The entire series will be LIVE and interactive and to add fun there will be polls, quizzes, video blogs and contests with celebrities and professionals like lawyers, doctors and counsellors participating.
“It was fun filled and we had to answer a volley of questions. Everyone was warm and lively” informs Ekta Choudhary.
Well this was their first step towards Bollywood. For how long mainstream Bollywood will remain a strict No-No for them, only time will tell. -Sampurn Media
