On Tuesday,Urvashi Rautela,17,from Delhi,bagged the Asian Super Model India 2011 contest,defeating 16 contestants aged 16-24,selected from the NCR and Mumbai,to represent India at the Asian Super Model Contest 2011. The finale at The Grand,Vasant Kunj,in Delhi,was a blingy affair with lots of dance and music. Clad in a blue Sabyasachi sari,Rautela looked like a million bucks. She says she has been a mathematics-chemistry fan all her life,until two years ago,when she won the Miss Teen India title in Mumbai. The first and second runners-up were Shraddha Pandey and Bobby Nagpal respectively.

Model Carol Gracias,who was on the selection panel,said: “I think one thing that separated the winners from those who couldn’t make it was confidence.” On the other hand,the girls found her presence unnerving. “Since she is a supermodel,most of us were nervous to have her as one of the selectors,” said Rautela. Besides Gracias,Sanjeev Mohanty,MD of Benetton group; Sachin Sharma,Swarovski group India head; and Sahil Shroff,model and actor,were also on the panel.

The three winners will go to Nanning,China,for the Grand Finale on September 8.
