US based-beauty pageant Miss Duniya has signed former Miss India Pooja Batra to join their advisory panel.
She believes every woman should be empowered to realise her dreams. The former beauty queen, who has featured in Bollywood films like "Virasat" and "Haseena Maan Jayegi", credits her success in the entertainment industry to having won the Miss India title in 1993 and wants to be a part of a platform that helps every young woman to believe in herself and her future.
"I’m excited to be a part of this vision; representatives from 130 countries will have a chance to win $250,000 in cash prizes. The platform will provide multiple opportunities in the entertainment and modelling industries for contestants both in Hollywood and Bollywood,” Pooja said in a statement.
The final of the first edition of the pageant will be held in December 2015 in Las Vegas.
