The founder has been working on the project since November last year. She even told that she did not get any financial support from big companies as some said that if they associate with the pageant, then it will affect the company’s image. She has already put in Rs 10 lakh into it.

The winner will go to Thailand for Miss International Queen, the first runner-up will compete at Miss Transsexual Australia. The organizers are looking for another international pageant so that they can send the second runner-up too.
