‘Wanted my statement to be India’s statement’

The 21-year-old model from Gurgaon, who will represent India at the Miss World 2015 pageant, was enthroned as the winner of 52nd edition of the beauty pageant on Saturday at the YRF  Studio here by reigning queen Femina Miss India Koyal Rana.

Aditi credits her friends with persuading her to participate in the beauty pageant. “I had always thought of representing India at an international level, if not through a beauty pageant then through other platforms such as business conferences, conclaves, events.

“I knew that I wanted to get there, some place where I make a statement and it becomes India’s statement. To decide if it was through the beauty pageant route or some other route – that was encouraged by my friends,” Aditi said. Having worked in the corporate sector, she feels beauty pageants accord instantaneous empowerment and a platform.
