Recently, auditions for first ever plus size beauty pageant – Miss and Mrs Curvy Queen 2017 – were held in Nagpur. The motto of the beauty pageant is to celebrate women of all sizes.


Sholly Sethi (Best Catwalk at Mrs Maharashtra 2016) and television actor Umama Ahmed (Iconic Eyes at Mrs Maharashtra 2016) judged the auditions. Mrs Maharashtra Swati Banerjee too was present during the auditions who upped the glam quotient even in casual denims.

Breaking stereotypes

This pageant, which features women who didn’t get their due, aims to break stereotypes and give plus size women a platform to showcase their talent and achieve their dreams.

The ‘Aww Moment!’

When one of the organisers Neha Chanchlani asked an elated husband of a participant, “Why do you want your wife to participate in this beauty pageant?” he answered, “Since our marriage, my wife has always been by my side, with all her heart. Today is the time when I want her to do something for herself. Something that makes her happy!”

The event was organised by 4th Dimension Media at Hotel Centre Point by Trishla Rane, (Director, 4th Dimension Media) and Neha Chanchlani (owner at Bounce Company and Studio Strands Salon).
