Melbourne-based Kamini Saberwal was crowned Mrs India Australia 2016 on 25 September, at a pageant that is considered to be among the highest billed in the country.
Kamini is a part-time model who decided to participate in this pageant as she thought it would give her the perfect platform to reach out to many other women like her as well as help her support various Australia charities.
The competition was tough and the 30 participants had to impress the judges with their personality, walk and answers to some very tough questions. The most cherished moment of the night, says Kamini, was when she was crowned the winner by her favourite Bollywood star Karisma Kapoor, chief judge at the event. Karisma was joined by Ms Lebanon Australia Mary Mehajer, Rani Benepal, John Sidoti MP, Blacktown Mayor Stephen Bali and Kim Cancellier on the panel.
As the winner of this competition, Kamini hopes to use the platform to work with different charities and promote the children and women’s causes she believes in. Her message to all married women out would be a quote by Walt Disney that she used in her introduction “All dreams come true if you have courage”.
Kamini is now preparing to take the world by storm at the international pageant in USA.
