Don’t be surprised if Bollywood gets a new stunning face soon. It was a proud moment for Namrata Tolia Shah when she grabbed the spotlight and won the crown at the Mrs India 2021 beauty pageant, organised by Skywalk Productions recently.
An optimistic bubbly person and a management professional, the 5.6 inch tall beauty impressed the judges and the audience alike, to win the title by her witty answers in her question-answer round. Namrata also turned out to be the only Mumbaikar to reach the final round of the pageant.
Impressing the judges in the introduction round with her confidence and grace, she was praised in the audition round for her beauty and wisdom. Namrata also presented a self-choreographed dance of the popular Hindi song, “O Saki Saki” in the talent round and received praises for her portrayal.
And here’s a bit of trivia. A fellow contestant in her late 40s was so mesmerised by Namrata that she walked up to her during rehearsals and started singing a Hindi movie song praising her beauty. During the training sessions this contestant had admitted that she could not take her eyes off Namrata. She said, “I have never sang a song for anybody, not even for my husband. But here, I dedicate a song to your beauty.” And then, she sang the popular song, “Tere chehre se nazar nahin hatati.”
At the Mrs India pageant, Namrata also topped the fitness session in the trial tenure, where all the contestants were supposed to perform non-stop exercises and Zumba.
“The pageant’s preparation was no cakewalk,” says the winner. “I had to take care and manage my weight and food habits, while concentrating on fitness to skin to hair routines. Simultaneously, I needed to be aware of all the global news and updates and also devote time to my family. But ultimately, the multi-tasking was worth it all,” she sighs.
After her Mrs India win, fellow contestants came together to congratulate her. Many claimed they had guessed from the start that Namrata would emerge the winner because of her charisma, character, grace and poise.
Sometime ago, the new Mrs India was felicitated by the Goregaon Sports Club with a bouquet and trophy, while she opened their cricket ‘Twenty-20 Season 1’. At the event, Namrata spoke eloquently about women empowerment and noted how she strongly believes in social causes and humanitarian service.
