MUMBAI—Crowned Femina Miss India in 2009, actress Pooja Chopra has been associated with Miss India since then and considers it to be a life-changing pageant. She was also a semi-finalist at Miss World 2009 and won the first ever Beauty with a Purpose title for India at Miss World 2009 in Johannesburg, South Africa. In fact, Chopra created a record when she won eight National as well as International titles in a single year in the pageant world.

The actress is now all set to mentor the girls from the East Zone at the fbb Colors Femina Miss India 2018 pageant. This will be the first time that she will be mentoring girls and is very excited to bring what the East Zone talent offers to the table.

Asked how she feels to be a part of Miss India again, but as mentor, she said, “Miss India has always been a dream that I have harnessed for far too long as a kid, and I know how hard I have worked to have this dream come true. And now to help girls who have harnessed exactly the same dream as I had, it’s going to be me reliving all my moments.”

During her journey as a mentor, she will be looking for girls who have the same kind of drive, motivation, and passion that she had when she competed. She advises the girls to have a dream and have the conviction to consistently work towards achieving it.
