Apurba Dot Com has launched the beauty pageant ‘Mrs. Universe Bangladesh’. About 8500 women applied for the first edition of the event. Among them, 200 are selected from auditions in the capital’s Hotel Regency. Actress Zahara Mitu is the judge from the beginning to the end of the event.

As a judge, I am delighted to be associated with the program, she said. “I hope I can get a lot of experience here.” 

Zahara Mitu ‍said, “I once stood in front of the judges as a contestant, now I am working as a judge myself. Auditions have started last Saturday. We hope to be able to pick the top 100 contenders soon.”

It is learned that Model Antu Karim is staying with Zahara Mitu as a judge. In addition, the main event judge panel will be different. The organizer plans to bring a guest judge of the experts on specific issues in each episode in a thematic competition. 

The main event of the competition will be held in China. The winner of the event will go to the main event in December to represent Bangladesh. The Grand Finale of ‘Mrs. Universe Bangladesh’ will be held in Dhaka on November 30.

Regarding the upcoming contestants, Mitu said, “Women of different ages, professions had applied to participate. It is positive that qualified, talented, educated, good women are taking part here. I was impressed by the contestants.” 

We’re not picking just by appearance. I am seeing special educational qualifications among them, she also said adding, “One thing we kept in mind — ‘the winner of the event will represent Bangladesh’. So we are not ready to give any kind of discount.”
