Sini Shetty from Karnataka was announced the winner of Femina Miss India 2022 pageant on Sunday.

The 21-year-old was crowned by Miss India 2020 Manasa Varanasi at the star-studded event that took place at the Jio World Convention Centre.

Rajasthan's Rubal Shekhawat emerged as Miss India 2022 first runner-up and Shinata Chauhan from Uttar Pradesh was named Miss India 2022 second runner-up.

Who is Sini Shetty?

Sini is born and brought up in Mumbai, but her family originally hails from Karnataka. The diva started learning classical dance at the age of four and at the age of 14, she completed her Arangetram in Bharatnatyam. She has a bachelor's degree in accounting and finance, and currently, she is pursuing a professional course named Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).

Tracing her journey

During an interaction with Times of India, Sini shared that though her family is contemporary, she grew up in a community that is conservative. "I believe the world tries to define a woman's value in a certain way, and I believe in finding my own meaning to it. To stand out from those values and find my place was a challenge. I am put up in four corners of the box regarding professional value. I was a novice in every professional sphere. Unifying them and working towards it was a hustle. But hustle is something that drives me and is the reason why I’m here," she said.

'Priyanka Chopra is my inspiration'

Sini reveals that Priyanka Chopra, who was crowned the Miss World 2000, is her inspiration. "When you look up to a person, some of their words get stuck by you. I remember hearing an interview of hers where she stated, 'Don't try to squeeze into a glass slipper. Instead, shatter the glass ceiling.' I have been a fan ever since," she shared.

Sini Shetty will now represent India at the prestigious 71st Miss World pageant.
