The talent round was organised after successful auditioning of about 200 initial applicants and a rigorous pageant training to the finalists for about two months.

The idea of this round was to enable finalists feature their honed talent and give an apt introduction to their act. About 150 audience members have witnessed the 4-hour display of performances on topics that ranged from environment, patriotism, woman empowerment, and female as an embodiment of beauty, brains and sensuality.
The event concluded with awarding the sub-titles to the finalists, such as Community Queen, Vivacious, Personality, Beautiful Smile, Charismatic, Intellectual, Elegance, Rising Star and others. The show was hosted by Kajal Sehmi, a well-known RJ from Lyca Dil Se. Team UK Mrs India, including Saaish Shhetey, Rupa Rajesh, Queen Singh, Uma Sukhtankar and others ran the show smoothly.
BrandWok Limited was founded by Aditi Gupta in 2013 in Singapore. Speaking to Asian Lite, Aditi says “My post-graduate degree in Events Management has helped in providing a solid basis and understanding of the issues therein. Being a professional model for several years provided me the confidence to participate in the beauty pageants. Winning the title of Mrs Global India Expat 2015 in Singapore has inspired a keenness in me to start Mrs India UK in London. The objective of the pageant is to aim to motivate married women of Indian background to celebrate their identity, values and principles, besides celebrating their external and internal beauty.
Colors TV UK is the presenting sponsor of the event, the finale of which is slated for Sunday,15 April at Hilton London Tower Bridge from 6pm onward.
