Prothom Alo’s report on the rumours

Jannatul Nayeem Avril, the dethroned queen

Indian actress Sheena Chohan, who anchored Miss World Bangladesh 2017, said on Sunday she had announced the name provided by the organisers.

Sheena, during the programme on Friday, announced Himi as the winner of the contest. One of the organisers immediately took the stage and told audience that Sheena made a mistake announcing the winner as the anchor could not understand Bangla.

Not only that, the organiser then declared Jannatul Nayeem as the winner and Bibi Russell crowned her as Miss Bangladesh 2017.

Since Saturday, the judges have started alleging Jannatul Nayeem was not on their list as the winner. Instead, they picked Jessia Islam as the champion but she was announced first runner-up.

In a conversation with Prothom Alo, Sheena Chohan said, "I want to say clearly that I announced the name I was provided by the organisers."

Controversy puts Antar Showbiz and Omikon Entertainment, hosts of ‘Lovello Miss World Bangladesh 2017’ in a sensitive position

Marriage controversy

News reports confirmed that Avril’s marriage certificate was found from a Kazi office at her hometown Chandanaish upazila in Chittagong. Her marriage certificate states that she was married to Chandanaish area’s Mohammad Monzur Ahmed, owner of a clothing store. The denmohor for the marriage was Tk8 lakh. She passed her SSC from Chandanaish’s Borma Trahimenka High School in 2013. She got married to Monzur Ahmed in March of the same year. Later on, they mutually signed for a divorce in June. Monzur told the press that Jannatul was a fraud and he hopes that no man ever gets cheated on by her again, like he was.

Judges’ marks leaked

It has been alleged that the results were altered by the show authorities to make Jannatul Nayeem the winner of Miss World Bangladesh 2017. Sources have confirmed that Jannatul Nayeem Avril wasn’t the first choice of the judges, rather she was behind the other contestants according to the marks given by the judges.

By Sonia Kabir’s marking Avril secured the second place. But by Rubaba Dowla’s marks, Avril was placed in the 7th position. Other judges were Fashion designer Bibi Russel, illusionist Jewel Aich, actress Shampa Reza and photographer Chanchal Mahmood. All of this was revealed after the mark sheet by these judges were leaked.

Avril’s name was not announced by the host

Host Sheena Chohan first announced the name of Jannatul Sumaiya Himi as the winner. She also announced the name of Jannatul Nayeem Avril and Jesia Islam as the first and second runners up. But the confusion ensued when the chairman of Antar Showbiz took the mike from Chohan and announced that there was a misunderstanding with the names and the winner is actually Jannatul Nayeem Avril. He then amended the names of first and second runners up, who were Jessia Islam and Jannatul Sumaiya Himi respectively. When Sheena Chohan was asked about the blunder, she said, “I wasn’t given any mark sheet. I announced the names the way I was told according to the marks given by the judges. If any mistakes were made, it’s on the authority, not on me.”

Bibi Russell’s reaction

Avril, the winner, was then crowned by renowned fashion designer Bibi Russell, who later said to a source, “The results reflected my decisions because the way I gave marks, Jannatul Nayeem Avril stood as the winner and the first and second runners up were Jessia Islam and Jannatul Sunaiya Himi, that’s exactly what happened.”

Organisers clarify

Antar Showbiz chairperson Swapan Chowdhury pointed out in his statement that both the participants’ name started with “Jannatul”, which is probably what created the confusion in the first place. “Because of the live telecast, we were suddenly informed that we have only a few minutes left in our allotment. So we had to hurry up. The announcer Sheena Chohan handled everything perfectly except the name announcement, same thing happened at the Oscars as well. But we sincerely apologise for this mistake,” said Swapan Chowdhury.
