Aman Grewal won the title of Mrs India Worldwide in 2014
While looking beautiful is the dream of every woman, not every girl wants to be called a diva. Patiala’s Aman Grewal, who won the title of Mrs India Worldwide in 2014, wants to contribute to the society more than being a part of the glamour world.
Aman was in Chandigarh on Thursday for the auditions of first edition of upcoming pageant Miss Punjab 2016.
During an interaction, she briefs us on the ongoing concepts of beauty pageants in India, and more.
She begins the conversation by shedding light on the fact that today, anybody and everybody is starting a pageant.
She says, “Some are really genuine and some beauty pageants are organised just to gain publicity, but they don’t offer reliability to the participants. And because of this, the genuine pageants also receive disrespect from public.”
She elaborates, “See, because of the non-experienced organisers, parents feel reluctant to let their girls participate in such contests.”
Further Aman feels that there should be an authorised organisation that certifies these pageants for their quality. “Now, it will be a responsibility of a pageant to prove itself in the market and to the aspirants too.”
A gold medallist in economics and a national level volleyball player, Aman believes that having good looks is not an achievement.
“And, that’s what I want to convey to all the girls, who aspire to participate in such pageants. Fair skin or sharp features don’t complete your personality. Rather, you need to master your self confidence and moral etiquettes so that you rise as a confident woman in the society,” says Aman, who has been giving personal grooming classes to the girls free of cost.
But, does she agree that Indian beauty pageants give preference to those who have a fair complexion?
“Somewhere yes, but I won’t say that it happens every time. Priyanka Chopra and Sushmita Sen are good examples of dusky beauties. Rest is how you present yourself, which also matters a lot,” Aman answers.
If given a choice to do a film, Aman says that she only wants to associate with projects that have a social message to spread.
“These days I’m pretty much focussed on the environment conservation. Also, coming from an army family and again married to an army officer, I am very much conscious about discipline and quality education.
“So, there is no chance going off the track,” Aman avers and signs off.
