Jalandhar girl Vanya Mishra was Friday crowned Pantaloons Femina Miss India (PFMI) World 2012 title at a gala event here.

She will represent India at the global pageant later this year.

Rochelle Maria Rao from Chennai won the title of Miss India International, while Prachi Mishra from Pune is Miss India Earth.

The winners were decided by a jury panel that comprised of actresses Sonam Kapoor and Sonali Bendre; filmmakers Ekta Kapoor and Rohit Shetty; cricketer Harbhajan Singh; designer Raghavendra Rathore; singer Sonu Niigaam and TV actress Sakshi Tanwar. They picked up the best three out of 20 contestants.

The deciding question was - "If you have an option, will you create thousand jobs or feed thousand children daily?"

Miss India 2011 title holders Kanistha Dhankhar, Hasleen Kaur and Ankita Shorey crowned the winners.

The event, which took place at the Bhavans Ground, saw scintillating performance by Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri. Singer actor Ali Zafar enthralled the audience with his power packed "Madhubala" performance from the movie "Mere Brother Ki Dulhan".

Ayushman Khurana and Manish Paul hosted the event.

    LOL and Sana Khan isn't covered with make-up? She doesn't look pretty with or without make-up :) Now just because Sana did a TV show it doesn't mean she was the best there.. I am sure the judges know better.

    Thank God! Finally someone mentioned that the beauty contest isn't only about looks. Too ironic that the fangirls here are too busy with proving how much Sana is prettier. So poor that this prettiness didn't help her to win the contest. LOLThough I don't think that she's that much beautiful/pretty, I don't have any problem who doesn't think like that. Is there any rule that all people have the same likes and dislikes ? Btw , if U are someone's fan , that doesn't mean he/she is the best of all and always wins no matter what.

    Now try to accept the fact and at least don't start again how much Sana deserved to win that. Damn! I guess this new Miss India should have done a show on TV. Then I could get to see a war between those fans! LOL

    The awkward moment when people blame the actress for being 'packed' on with makeup = / Do you honestly think models are going to prance around the beauty pageant in their pajamas?

    LMAO! *Throws a brain cell at the members direction* CATCH!!

    Even more hilarious is when members rant on about makeup and what not when they have pictures of actresses CAKED up on their ID's. = / = /

    Seriously beauty pageants make me sick. Apart from Sushmita Sen.. no other diva has done anything significant after winning. She will become brand ambassador of some face cream and shampoo and thats it. Life will move on.
    That girl above is caked with layers of foundation, blush, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, bronzer ..and all that crap. Wait..did I forget Photoshop? lol
