Kriti Kulhari: I had a wonderful time. I went back to the time when I used to be a participant. Pune is very close to my heart, as my sister has studied here. It’s always nice to see young energy out there. Also, it feels so good to be on the cover page, a cherry on the top. Saurabh Gadgil: Every year, the bar is being raised higher and higher. A lot of new faces are getting a good platform. It’s the 15th year of the pageant, and that needs consistency and focus. Magna is doing a great job, launching Pune-based talent on bigger platforms. Sonalee Kulkarni: The evening was surprising, shocking, and full of curiosity. It was a tough competition, a mix of talent and beauty, and the contestants’ presence of minds, that was awesome.
