He had always been known for encouraging new talents and we have continued his legacy by walking on his steps. I believe legacy is not leaving something for people. It’s leaving something in people which he has truly left within all of us. Our main aim is to keep his name alive FOREVER. We have had a bunch of talented contestants this time with their own uniqueness. All the models have been groomed to enter the glam world through this show. We have many hopes from our contestants and I hope they will make us proud in the near future “- Rakhi Narang, Show Organiser and Director.
