It was not a total loss as she won the title of Miss Bollywood Diva 2011 in the contest. She speaks with us exclusively on her experience at the contest, reaction of fans and more.
Sukirti narrates,"I participated in this beauty competition, which was held in Dubai as I wanted to experience being a part of such beauty pageants which is a new thing for me. I love to try new things all the time. I had lot of fun as well as a learning experience. I observed and imbibed a lot from the other participants. A lot of them were very good dancers and from that I learnt it is important to know all forms of performing arts."
Talking about her experience in Dubai she adds, "This city is a lot of fun because I went out a lot of clubs which was awesome. In this short trip, I made a lot of friends. It was a dream come true to represent India in a beauty pageant. It feels great. I have collected many good memories, which I will cherish forever."
On winning the title of Bollywood Diva 2011 and reaching the top ten, she says, "Well, I am delighted that I was in top ten and won the subtitle even after working continuously for my tv show."
She also has some advice for all her fans and aspiring actors. "Even before leaving for Dubai, I completed a 19 hour shift. After reaching Dubai, the pace was no less hectic. However, I just want to tell everybody that they should have confidence in themselves and the most important is to believe in yourself. Use your positive points to the maximum. I feel my confidence enabled me to reach the top ten. I am happy that I made my country proud. If I would have had time to prepare for the talent round, I know I could have given a better fight but I have no regrets as I am very happy content with my result."
She is thrilled with the reactions of her fans too. "It's nice to see that my character Piya has become very famous and that they love my jodi with Abhay. For now, I am looking forward to the leap in Pyaar Ki Ye Ek kahaani and I am also learning how to play piano."
