Last week, Urvashi Rautela, a 17-year-old from Dehradun, bagged the Asian Super Model India 2011 contest, from among 16 contestants (aged 16-24) selected from Delhi/NCR and Mumbai, to represent India at the Asian Super Model Contest 2011. The finale at The Grand, Vasant Kunj, in Delhi, was a rather blingy affair, with lots of dance and music.

Clad in a blue Satya Paul sari, Rautela looked like a million bucks as stepped on to the stage. Rautela says she has been a mathematics-chemistry junkie all her life, until two years ago, when she won her first beauty contest title in Mumbai. The first and second runners-up were Shraddha Pandey and Bobby Layal respectively.

Model Carol Gracias, who was on the selection panel said, “The girls were all lovely. But I think one thing that separated the winners from those who couldn’t make it was confidence.” On the other hand, the girls found her presence unnerving.
