Earlier today, Indian-American Shree Saini — who was crowned Miss India Worldwide in 2018 — was spotted at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. Indian-origin American Shree Saini is on her maiden visit to Mumbai. She flew in straight from New York, looking super-chic in an off-shoulder tube top and a navy blue short skirt. She completed her look with the coveted crown, as she stepped out beaming, greeting people with folded hands. For the uninitiated, Saini was crowned Miss India Worldwide in December 2018 at a pageant held in New Jersey.
For the prestigious annual beauty pageant, Saini had to compete with Indian-origin girls from as many as 17 countries. Conducted by the India Festival Committee — founded and headed by Dharmatma Saran in New York City, USA — the Miss India Worldwide pageant draws contestants from India and from among members of the Indian diaspora residing in other countries. Saini, a native of the Indian state of Punjab, moved to the United States when she was seven. She had a pacemaker implanted at the age of 12, and was told she would never be able to dance again. Ever since then, she has been advocating for heart health, emotional fitness and progressive mindset.
