Mr. Badal Saboo, MD – Chairman-Face of India said, ‘Face of India is truly a hotbed for aspiring models to present themselves at an international platform. I always look forward to redefining the beauty norms and find fresh faces from across India and give them a window of opportunity to compete at a renowned international platform. With contestants like Raju Tiwari, a mediocre seller of women accessories in the train from the town of Kargaspur in Banaras, found by a talent company that trained him to be a Model, I believe we have gone a step beyond in our search and are reinventing the model norms. Face of India is a platform that explores such talent and is proud to be associated with their journey’.
