At a glittering ceremony in Lucknow last week, model and actress Arshi Khan was crowned IndyaNewz.com Ms North India Queen. The event was exclusively covered by Bollywood photographers Camaal Mustafa Sikander and Raju Asrani who were also the judges for the event. After a tough fight with about 25 participants, model Arshi Khan who was a winner all the way was crowned the winner.
Speaking about the event, photographer and Imaging expert Camaal Mustafa Sikander said, “It was a tough fight among the contestants. Arshi Khan was simply superb in every round. I congratulate her and wish her all the best.” Stylist and photographer Raju Asrani too congratulated Arshi Khan on winning the crown and thanked IndyaNewz.com for sponsoring the event.
Arshi Khan was also selected and crowned Miss Maharashtra Global Tourism – as part of the ongoing Miss Maharashtra King & Queen 2014 Pageant. She will represent the State of Maharashtra at the Global Tourism glam event and conference – Miss Global Tourism 2014 to be held later this year.
She will also be seen at the Miss Tourism Universe pageant to be held in Singapore later this year. Arshi Khan was born in Afghanistan but came to India when she was just four years old as her parents migrated back in India to Bhopal. She finished her school and college in Bhopal itself and was attracted towards theater since her early childhood. Acting brought her to Mumbai where she bagged many assignments in a short span of six months.
She was introduced to the famous stage personality Janaab Ehsaan Chishti, a famous theater director in Bhopal. “Ehsaan ji thought that I have a attractive face and figure and if I try and work hard, I can possibly make it as an actor. He used to instigate me and it was at Ehsaan ji’s provocation that I started acting in various dramas in Bhopal city. I started getting offers for modeling and that’s how I got assignments,” Arshi Khan said.
Taking a cue from him, she got a break in a Tamil film ‘Malli Mishtu’ where she played the lead role opposite Tamil star Naresh and has not looked back since then.
