Ankur Gautam won the ‘Mr India Manhunt 2018’ title, which event was held in the national capital, with Bollywood actor-director-producer Arbaaz Khan as one of the jury members. The first and second runner-ups of the pageant were Gurinderjeet Singh Hara and Mohit Singh, respectively.
The event, organised by Skywalk Entertainment at The Umrao, Samalkha, was attended by some of the prominent faces from different walks of the life, including renowned celebrity pageant coach Lieutenant (Retd) Rita Gangwani, Big Boy Toyz (BBT) managing director Jatin Ahuja, Gurmeet Singh, Sanjeev Mittal and others.
"There are many young talents who deserve an opportunity in the Bollywood but they need proper platforms to learn the required skills." Arbaaz, who is gearing up for the release of his forthcoming Jack & Dil, said during the Mr India Manhunt 2018 pageant.
Contestants from different parts of India and abroad participated in the event. The contestants went through several tough rounds, including a question and answer session where they answered some tricky questions asked by the ‘Jack and Dil’ actor Arbaaz and other judges.
“We all have one kind of talent or other and the only thing which makes a person successful is realizing his real talent. Events like this are providing youngsters with an opportunity to judge themselves. Some of them are very talented and a proper guidance can make them a star of tomorrow,” said Arbaaz - who plays a role of a possessive husband in the upcoming movie.
Manish Sahdev and Ankita Aggarwal of Skywalk Entertainment said that they have been working hard to polish the qualities of contestants year after year because of which celebrities like Arbaaz and others are coming forward voluntarily to judge the event.
In 2017, Bollywood actor Tushar Kapoor and beauty expert, Shahnaz Husain were the judges of the show.
