Mumbai: Vasuki Sunkavalli, popularly known as Vasuki in the Indian modelling industry, has been chosen to represent India at the Miss Universe contest this year. She says she is confident of making her country proud.

“In this competition, I met a lot of people from different parts of the country and from different professions. That was very interesting. I am very confident, hopeful and determined that I will bring the crown back. I will give it my best,” Vasuki told reporters here.

The 26-year-old Hyderabad girl was crowned Miss Universe India 2011 through former Miss Universe-turned-actress Sushmita Sen’s Wadhawan Lifestyle I Am She contest at a private ceremony here on Friday night.

But the results of the contest were unveiled in the media on Saturday.

Two more crowns were given out.

The I Am She Globe International 2011 title was bagged by 23-year-old Parul Duggal, a fashion designer by profession, while 19-year-old Tanvi Singla from Mysore has won the I Am She Asia Pacific 2011 title.

Sen, whose production company Tantra Entertainment, was awarded the India franchise by the Miss Universe Organisation last year, said her endeavour is now “three times larger”.

“We have added two new franchises — the Miss Globe International and Miss Asia Pacific. I feel immensely proud to say that with these girls, the chances of the international crowns coming back to India are closer than we think,” she said.

With the title, Vasuki won a cash prize of Rs 2 lakh, while the other two title holders have been awarded Rs 1 lakh each. (IANS)
