Sonam Paul Tenzing Bhutia from Sikkim along with Lukanand Kshetrimayum from Manipur and Jonathan Thangeo from Mizoram were bestowed with the titles of 10th Garnier Men Mega Mister North East 2019 during the grand finale at Guwahati on Thursday evening.
Lukanand Kshetrimayum also won the title of Mister International India, thus qualifying directly to represent India in the Mister International pageant to be held later this year, informs a press release from the organizers.
Mega Mister North East is the biggest manhunt in Northeast India, which has been conceptualized by leading fashion entrepreneur Abhijit Singha, and produced by Mega Entertainment.
The three winners will be offered professional representation by Mega Entertainment, a professional grooming session, which would guide them further on how to carry themselves forward in the professional sphere. Besides, the winners also get the opportunity to walk the ramp in various national and international shows.
Sonam, 22 years, shared his happiness on winning the biggest manhunt of Northeast India.
“This opportunity that I have received is something that I have dreamt of since a long time and means a lot for me. I am very thankful to Mega Entertainment for believing in me and for putting up such great platform where youngsters can make a mark in the fields of their choice and nurturing them to forge their path ahead,” he said.
“I want people to encourage Mega Entertainment because it is giving the youngsters a mission and an opportunity to become a compassionate and confident individual, thus diverting our generation from societal issues like substance abuse, depression and suicidal tendencies that have been adversely affecting our society. I am also very grateful to the people of my State Sikkim for their immense love and support during the contest,” said Sonam.
The grand finale of the 10th edition witnessed the participation of 50 contestants, who travelled to Guwahati for almost a week of activities which included grooming and training sessions conducted by the Mega Entertainment team. This was followed by rehearsals, leading up to the grand finale of the biggest manhunt of North East India.
Speaking at the grand finale of the event, Abhijit Singha, Founder of Mega Entertainment said, “Starting this year, Mega Entertainment decided to eliminate the concept of runners-up from our pageant. So, all the top-3 contestants are the winners of Garnier Men Mega Mister North East. They have struggled their way to the top, managing to beat the other 47 contestants, hence they are all winners. The winner with the maximum score, Lukanand Kshetrimayum, will represent India in Mister International pageant.”
The judges who sealed the fate of this year’s winners included: Mega Miss North East 2016 Meriya Subba, Mega Mister North East 2017 Babul Koch, fashion & lifestyle promoter Monika Devi, hotelier and entrepreneur Bobby Singh, and fashion photographer Rahul Biswas.
The pageant organizers were also judged for a series of sub-awards.
