chasing glamour

The hunt is on for yet another head turner who will make it to a page of the calendar this time. Milind Soman, anchor of the show Hunt for the Kingfisher Calendar Girl 2010, on NDTV Good Times, tells Sunday Herald what judges were looking for. 

Excerpts from an interview:
What has Milind Soman got to do with the Kingfisher Calendar?
I am anchoring the TV show to find the new face of the Kingfisher calendar 2010. I am also one of the two judges that comprise the permanent jury, the other judge being Shobhaa De. My company Face Entertainment is producing the show for NDTV Good Times.       
Tell us something about the action packed gruelling screening process the press release talks about?
We wanted to make sure that the girl that we finally select will be a kind of mega super model in terms of talent and performance. The tests are conceived in such a way that any girl who consistently scores well will be able to give her best and make a great picture under the most adverse conditions. So, for the tasks that the contestants had to go through, we created the toughest modelling assignments that would give nightmares to even the most professional model.   
 How do you define the hottest girl in the country?
A young, striking looking girl, who would make heads turn anywhere in the world, with the right balance of strength, sensuality and elegance plus a big dose of factor X .   

 What were the judges looking for?
The judges were looking for the hottest girl in the country who was also unfailingly professional in her attitude, consistent and surprising in her performance and a great team player.

 What was your opinion about the girls who came for the screening?
There was a great mix of different looks from all over the country and quite a few girls with a very special and unique combination of attitude and beauty. Personally, I would have liked to see more representation from the North Eastern states.

 What’s in store for the girl who makes it?
A page on the calendar and a whole host of prizes which include a photo shoot with Elle, a cash prize, a holiday with club med and Kingfisher has also given free tickets to London.

Where is the calendar going to be shot this time?
In Maldives

 Anybody in particular who stood out?
There were three or four girls who stood out immediately, with very interesting features, body language and natural style.

Has the final decision been taken?
Wait and watch the show!
