Former Miss India Sana Dua Appointed as State Director for Miss India Universe

For the first time in history, globally renowned beauty contest Miss Universe is set to be organised in the Indian Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir. The above development follows appointment of beauty queen and former Miss India Sana Dua, as the “State Director” for Jammu and Kashmir at Miss Universe India, which brings a significant achievement for the region.

The participation in the beauty contest is open to single, married, no longer married women, with age no bar!

Sana had created a historic feat in 2017 by emerging as the first Miss India hailing from Jammu and Kashmir.

Sana later established “Image and beyond by Sana Dua,” a grooming and empowerment startup that has gained national and international recognition for its expertise in guiding and grooming the aspiring contestants for beauty pageants across the globe.

Sana has strong family connections in Melbourne, Australia. And she often visits Melbourne to meet with her family and friends, and also enjoy a vacation down under.

During her last visit to Melbourne in August 2022, Sana had also joined the Janmasthmi celebrations at ISKCON Temple in Albert Park. Sana was also invited as ‘Guest of Honor’ at the Indian Independence Day celebrations held in the leafy suburb of Cranbourne.

Commented former Ministerial Adviser and Aussie expat Mr. Nitin Gupta—“Hearty congratulations to extremely talented beauty industry stakeholder Miss Sana Dua, on her new role as the State Director of Miss India Universe. Wishing her all the very best, as she steps in her new role to organise the Jammu and Kashmir leg of Miss Universe India. I am sure this would be pretty good for tourism, and various other businesses associated with the beauty and related industries in, and around Jammu and Kashmir.”
