Bengaluru: 14 women of all sizes walked the ramp at Mrs Karnataka International 2019 Grand Finale held on Friday (October 11). The show was an initiative of Asha Kiran, a social worker, who said women have always been divided as plus size or size zero models at every beauty pageant. “Say no to body shaming and say yes to self-confidence. Whosoever feels she is not fit for the society, try to gain that confidence in yourself that we don’t exist to please this world. We are what we are, don’t expect us to be what we are not,” Kiran added.
The show announced philanthropist Shabnam Hajira as Mrs Karnataka International, followed by Raksha Shinde and Sapna Savant as 1st and 2nd runners-up, respectively.
