Navneet Kaur Dhillon Wins Multimedia Award At Miss World 2013
The Times of India TNN | Sep 27, 2013
Pond's Femina Miss India World 2013 Navneet Kaur Dhillon helped India bag the Multimedia Award at the Miss World 2013 pageant in Indonesia for the second time in a row. The award was first introduced by the Miss World Organization in 2012 when India's Vanya Mishra clinched it.
The Multimedia Award is adjudged on how contestants presented their web section of the Miss World website and a Facebook page wherein they interact with fans through status updates, photos and videos. The maximum updates, interactions, likes and shares by fans earn fast track points on the Miss World scoreboard and ultimately help the contestant win the Multimedia Award.
Navneet's active interaction with her fans, her regular updates about the experiences at the Miss World 2013 contest through self-clicked photos and videos on the assigned Facebook page helped her win this prestigious award. Her contributions in particular on the Multimedia Award day were appreciated where she helped raise awareness about the rare Sumatran Tiger as she posted some really clever and prompt updates using pictures and videos through the day.
The Miss World pageant also has a Beauty with a Purpose award which is given to the contestant who makes special dedication to a charitable cause to help those who are less fortunate.
Navneet, in her endeavour to win this award, joined hands with Hindustan Unilever Ltd, Pureit Brand to spread awareness about the importance of safe drinking water in India. Under its 'Unilever Pureit Protecting lives' programme, she and the brand's key NGO partner Integrated Village Development Program (IVDP), spent a few days in Tamil Nadu's Krishnagiri district to talk about the cause.
She finished 9th among the top 10 finalists of Beauty with a Purpose award at the Miss World 2013 pageant

Zoya Afroz and Sonali Raut: Catfight in 2014
Beauty Queen Not Interested In Patching Up With Co-Star
Hiren Kotwani,TNN | May 11, 2014 The Times of India
debutante actresses Zoya Afroz (Miss India 2013 Second Runner-Up) and Sonali Raut had a catfight in early 2014. After that they decided against jointly promoting The Xpose. The two had clashed while shooting for Kapil Sharma's television show, as part of the film's promotional campaign. Lead actor Himesh Reshammiya tried to broker peace, but in vain.
Interestingly, the girls had first locked horns while shooting a similar scene for the movie. Back then, Himesh had managed to calm them down. The next time around, The Times of India reports, Kapil is also attempting a truce between Zoya and Sonali. "He planned to host a dinner for them so that they can resolve their differences," says a source.
Zoya maintained, "I'm not interested in patching up with Sonali."
