Another hot ticket event of the beauty pageant season after Femina Miss India and the Mrs India contest is the Gladrags Mega Model and Manhunt Contest 2006.
Forty faces -- 20 men and 20 women -- have been chosen from hundreds
of wannabe models, that gathered for the regional contests at India's major metros, to prepare for the final night in Mumbai under the guidance of Maureen Wadia, editor of Gladrags magazine. The models undergo special training in career management, nutrition, makeup, etiquette, physical training, dancing and diction for the big night.
