Photographer Captures Miss India Backstage Moments Like Never Before

Miss India or Femina Miss India is a national beauty pageant. We being Indians look forward seeing our women in power representing themselves and the place they belong to on the ramp. It is not just a ramp to display a plethora of clothes and styles but a feeling of letting the ladies amp up a little, get out of their comfort zone and construct power. 

Apart from being a feeling, it is also the sneak peeks that increase our heart rate a little. We look forward to know more about our celebrities and what they do behind the scenes. We still remember how excited we grow just when we get to see Urvashi Rautela's gorgeous pictures
