Talking about Mrs. World International finale, Barkha Nangia says, “I had launched this pageant to introduce a plethora of opportunities for married women. I believe that nothing could stop you from reaching new heights and setting new milestones if you are passionate about it. Age is just a number, what counts is your efforts and your approach toward your goals. Many of the participating finalists and winners go on to be recognized for some brilliant work in modeling, acting, theater, ramp shows, commercial advertisements, music videos and much more. Congratulations to the winner, runners-up and finalists.”
Sharing her views on the pageant, Madhurima Tuli said, “It was a pleasure to judge Mrs Word International 2022. Every participant came with her own set of skills, and their charisma and confidence is really spectacular. It’s a myth that women can not or must not focus on their careers after marriage. All the participants broke several social stereotypes and proved themselves. I congratulate all the winners and participants.”
