With Zee TV organising Dance India Dance Super Moms North America as well, Nina Davuluri, the first Miss America of Indian origin, was in Mumbai to judge the finale of DID Super Moms North America at Famous Studios on December 17. DID Super Moms… provides a platform for Indians settled in North America to showcase their talent. The show was judged by Indians of American origin, only.
As Davuluri explains, “My journey is akin to riding a rollercoaster. Besides being a prestigious event, it was an amazing feeling to have won the Miss America title this year and represent Americans of Indian origin while jetsetting around the world after wearing the Miss America crown. The title comes with an immense amount of responsibility as well because youngsters look upto you as a role model and you have to keep your standards high. I am also honoured to judge DID Super Moms North America. It has been an incredibly touching experience to sit in the judge’s seat and listen to their stories. Judging is a hard task as we had such a wide variety of performances, ranging from Bollywood to classical and so on. When I judge, I consider the diligence and hardwork of the contestant. My advice to them is to enjoy their performance,” says Davuluri.
A trained dancer in Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, ballet and jazz, she has showcased Indian culture during the talent round of the Miss Universe contest while dancing to the tunes of Dhoom tana. DID Super Moms is a community oriented show that helps a mother to live her dream and showcase her talent.
