Behind The Scenes at "I Am She" Miss Universe | Ipsita Pati | Sushmita Sen | Tantra Entertainment

Sushmita Sen's Tantra Entertainment runs the "I Am She Miss Universe" - a national level pageant to select the model who goes to represent India at the Miss Universe Pageant. Pantaloon's Femina  Miss India Contest winners will represent India at the Miss World, Miss Earth, Miss International contests. This is the first year Tantra Entertainment has won the franchisee to select the contestant.

For us Oriyas - there is more news and action from the I am She Miss Universe 2010. Ipsita Pati - an Oriya model from Vizag who represented at the event filed a complaint at a Bhubaneswar P.S. against Tantra. She went on to say that the event was mismanaged and she was starved during the grooming. She lost so much weight eventually that she was disqualified for being underweight! So that's life behind the arclights. Tough Ipsita. Tough way to learn at 18 - that life is not fair.

Ipsita alleged that she was replaced by someone from West Bengal. And the winner was Ushoshi Sengupta from West Bengal - so...any inference there...if the clue is Sushmita too is a Bong ;-)

I don't know how much this whistle-blowing is going to help Ipsita's career. I hope she gets over the trauma and has a successful life ahead - in whatever field she chooses. From her biodata - it appears she is immensely talented!
