Sikhs vie for title of ‘Mr Singh’ in AmritsarNovember 29th, 2009 - 5:22 pm ICT by ANI
Amritsar (Punjab), Nov 29 (ANI): Sikh youths from across the world competed for the coveted title of ‘Mr Singh International’ at a Sikh fashion show here on Saturday.
Organised by a voluntary organisation, named Akal Purakh Ki Fauj (APKF), the fashion show was organised with an aim to attract the youths towards modelling.
The participants were glad to participate in the competition.
“About 15,000 people have come to watch Sikhs walk the ramp that’s their pride in Sikhism. These Sikhs are going to rock the show and prove that Sikhs are the best, will be the best and remain the best throughout the world,” said Amanpreet, one of the participants.
The organisers believed that shows like this would give a platform to the youths to make their presence felt not only in modelling but also in Bollywood.
“Our aim is to showcase the talent of these Sikh youths and through this take them to Bollywood where they can show their talent. There is dearth of robust Sikh youths in the Bollywood and people from other community enact the roles of Sikhs which they cannot justify,” Jaswinder Singh, President APKF.
Non-resident Indians from England, Australia, Hong Kong and Canada participated in the show. (ANI)
