MTV’s India’s Next Top Model Season 2 is about to come to an end and judges Photographer Daboo Ratnani, model/actress Lisa Haydon and VJ/actress/singer Anusha Dandekar seem to have witnessed a fierce competition.
The competition that began with 13 contestants (Ana Chaudhary, Raavi Ambiger, Lekha Prajapati, Ashmita Jaggi, Ritija Malvankar, Manish Ravuthar, Rajashree Singha, Neelam Virwani, Poulomi Das, Priya Banerjee and Akansha Sharma), is now left with only three: Jantee Hazarika, Subhomita Banerjee, Pranati Rai Prakash.
After a double elimination that saw strong contenders Akansha and Priya being sent packing, the competition has become even more tight. The previous two tasks assigned to them were: an upside down harness shoot and one with Lisa Haydon.
Matching the grace, glamor, screen presence and composure of Haydon was a task, despite her trying to make everyone at ease and work as a team. Even the guest judge at the last shoot, Neha Dhupia was impressed by their show of class.
Off the screen, these models have to do a lot of work to maintain their composure. In a competitive environment like this, and with a huge viewership, it is hard to maintain physical and mental stability, and therefore scientists suggest various measures like yoga and other exercises.
One of the remaining models, Pranati Rai Prakash has been often seen doing Yoga, and her official Instagram account has an array of pictures from her everyday yoga routine.. One of her captions reads ÿoga isn’t only a means to physical fitness.. #bliss #yogasana… #pranatiraiprakash”.
The result clearly shows in her assignments, as she has been the coolest among them all.
The finale is going to be aired soon, and the competition is at its peak. From what is known of the modeling world, it can prove to be quite deadly and not being able to cope with the pressure is often the biggest reasons for failure.
This is something that the previous season winner and the youngest contestant (18 years) of the lot, Danielle Canute emerged as the winner. She beat extreme odds by defeating much more experienced models and carried herself gracefully through the finals. Her achievement must be a testimony for the current and future models of the show. It has also been rumored that she will be present for the finale.
