Mangaluru: Nischitha Shenoy was declared the winner of Mrs India South 2017 held in Chennai. Nischitha also won the title of "Mrs India Bollywood Queen – South Edition 2017".
Born to Ananth Shenoy and Reshma Shenoy, Nischitha is a technology consulting professional, a licensed Zumba fitness instructor and a mother to a 16-month-old baby girl. As a Zumba instructor, she has helped raise funds for several causes. She is also a trained Bharatanatyam dancer.
Apart from that, Nischitha is a supporter of the NGO Saytrees.org and volunteers with "Save Whitefield" a public initiative to tackle civic and environmental issues in Whitefield, Bengaluru.
"As women, we are told different things by people around us. Some good and some bad. We need to shun bad things, defy expectations of people who have little or no faith in our abilities, prove them wrong and stand tall and proud like queens," said Nischitha.
Nischitha will now enter the national round of Mrs India 2017 to be held in June.
