Kids bowled over the audience with their innocent charm at Darlings of Nagpur – a beauty pageant organised for kids by Emprize Events and Promotion in association with Nation Next as the media partner at Hotel Tuli Imperial on February 17. The contest, which was organised for kids till eight years of age, was judged by pageant winners Ekta Bhaiya and Dr Vartika Patil.
The contest was organised for kids in four categories:
→ Infancy (0-1 year)
→ Tumbling Toddlers (1-3 years)
→ Story Tellers (3-5 years)
→ Notty Shotty (5-8 years)
As the kids in different categories came up on the stage performed, their mothers cheered for them with pride and excitement. While some kids danced, some walked the ramp with style. One of the little girl even performed yoga! Another little girl carrying a placard with the message to save girl child was enough to give many in the audience goose bumps.
For the first two categories, the kids were accompanied by their mothers. Eventually, winners of different categories were awarded with the titles of ‘Prince of Nagpur’ and ‘Princess of Nagpur.’ Different subtitles, such as, Fashion Icon, Most Adorable Baby and Mini Model were also given to kids in different categories. Needless to say, almost all kids during the contest won some or the other fancy gifts.
Also present during the contest was Vila Bobde, President, Vidarbha Cine Aritsts Association. Bobde, from the contest, selected a few kids, who might get an opportunity to be a part of a commercial or movie from Vidarbha.
The Darlings of Nagpur beauty pageant for kids was hosted by Reema Methai and was beautifully organised by Reet Methai, the owner of Emrpize Events and the brain behind the contest.
