Contest Format 

The contest will consist of the following 3 rounds - 

Introduction Round:  This is your opportunity to get the judges attention. Walk the ramp and share a little bit about yourself with the audience. Be ready to say one line about how you relate (or not) with Bollywood and what/who inspires you.  

Talent Round: Contestants selected for this round will get an opportunity to do an act (no more than 2 minutes) to demonstrate their talent. Make it fun and creative to wow the judges!

Final Round: All contestants will wear formal evening attire (preferably Indian formal wear) for the final round fashion show. Top 5 Finalists will be selected for the final question/answer round.   Contestants will have to put their thinking cap on! Each contestant will be judged based on their answers to questions, ability to handle pressure and intellect.
