As a part of this initiative, awareness campaigns will be organized at various places rich in biodiversity, and the general public will be educated on the importance of preserving the same.
Abhijeet Singha, Founder of Mega Entertainment says, “In the past 15 years, Mega Miss North East has established a strong foothold across northeast, and today, it is the most coveted beauty pageant of the region. Because of that, there has been a tremendous change in the quality of talent that we see at the auditions. The girls are so much more confident and prepared, as compared to the previous years. They take more effort in maintaining their skin, hair and overall appearance.”
“Similarly, the contestants of Mega Mister North East start their fitness training for the pageant months in advance, and they are more confident with themselves. Now, as we march towards celebrating almost a decade of the pageant, the contestants will be in store for bigger surprises, better opportunities and the associations with many big names from the fashion and glamour industry. I am sure this year’s auditions will bring out yet another group of talented and confident contestants from across the region”, adds Singha.
As the title sponsor for Mega Miss North East, India’s premium hair care brand Sunsilk celebrates the free-spirited, joyful and confident girl. Given the spirit that the Sunsilk girl embodies, there could not have been a better association than with Mega Miss North East where young girls from different walks of life write their own story, with different hairstyles adorning their thick and long hair. Hence, the theme of the pageant this year is “When Your Hair Is Thick, Take Your Own Style Pick”.
