THe chosen one
Friday was a long day for Indian Diva 2013 hopefuls at Bella Vista, Panchkula. Parents, siblings, friends in tow, the contestants waited with abated breath for the winner. Shruti Tuli wore the crown for Indian Diva finalist 2013. From Amritsar, Shruti is a media student who has been living the dream of winning the crown for long now. “I have put in my heart and soul in this. From daunting diet to losing sleep over the tough competition, it’s been a considerable journey,” says Shruti.
