Miss India 2017: #WeAreChanging
One winner from every state in India, mentored by four celebrities, will participate in fbb Colors Femina Miss India 2017
The pageant is growing bigger each year and this time, fbb Colors Femina Miss India 2017 will conduct a nation-wide hunt in all the 30 states (including the Capital, Delhi).
The top 3 of every state will be given a golden ticket to the state zonal crowning ceremony, which will be held in Bengaluru (South Zone), Delhi (North Zone), Kolkata (East Zone) and Pune (West Zone). And the state winner will get a chance to represent her state at the grand finale in Mumbai, which will be held in June and aired on Colors.
To encourage more participation, the height criteria has been reduced to 5'5' and the swimwear round has been eliminated from the auditions. Each zone will be led by a celebrity mentor — Parvathy Omanakuttan, Neha Dhupia, Dipannita Sharma and Waluscha De Sousa — who will choose the best talent from their respective states.
The finalists will go through a holistic and rigorous training programme with the best in the industry. Apart from fame and glory, the winner stands a chance to take home prizes in cash and kind, running over a crore and above. fbb, India's fashion hub, has partnered again to be the title sponsor of the pageant.
This association is in sync with the brand's objective to make fbb one of India's most preferred fashion brands. For the past five years, the pageant has been in a strategic alliance with Colors to achieve maximum mileage for fbb Colors Femina Miss India. The auditions will take place at fbb/Big Bazaar stores and for the first time, will be open to public viewing.
