19-year-old model and actress Kate Sharma was today selected the winner of the Miss Pune Online 2016 pageant. Kate who originally hails from Ulhasnagar is now based in Panvel near Mumbai, but plans to shift to Mumbai very soon as she wants to aggressively launch her Bollywood career.
She earlier completed her schooling from Ulhasnagar and B.Com from the Mumbai University to pursue her dreams of modeling and acting. The pageant Miss Pune Online 2016 and Miss Pune Selfie Queen is organised by Bollywood news portal IndyaNewz.com, Rainbow TeleFilms India and PageantsWorld.com. Kate was also voted the selfie queen in a sub-contest of the same event.
“Both the pageants are organised to promote local talent at the town and city level and to groom and promote artistes and actors with a sturdy platform, which gives them the opportunity to interact with professional choreographers, musicians, actors, film directors and stage personalities,” said Kiran Raut of Rainbow Telefilms.
