By A Correpondent
Miss India-Canada 2012 is to be held on August 18 at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel in Toronto.
The MISS INDIA-CANADA event is unique in many ways—delegates are judged on their Indian Dress, Evening Gown, Talent, and their ability to speak in public. The show is focused on Indian arts and culture and at the same time blending into the Canadian mosaic.
Anupam Kher to be Honoured
Internationally renowned Bollywood actor, Anupam Kher, is best remembered in movies like: Karma, Lamhe, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge,Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Maara, Khosla Ka Ghosla and A Wednesday.
He will be the Celebrity Guest of Honour and will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 22nd annual Miss India-Canada Event.
Mr. Kher went international when he worked with acclaimed directors such as Gurinder Chaddha, David O Russell, Ang Lee and Woody Allen. He is the only Indian actor to have shared screen space with the legendary actor Robert De Niro.
Moreover, he has been showered with innumerable accolades and awards—he holds the distinction of winning no less than 8 Filmfare awards in a row. His critical and commercial success in over 100 plays and almost 450 films stand testament to this eternal optimism that gave rise to the drive and passion that catapulted Padma Shri award-winning actor Anupam Kher to the heights of being considered one of the greatest actors of contemporary cinema.
Recently, Mr. Kher detailed his philosophy and authored his first book on life coaching titled The Best Thing About You is You! The book was endorsed by many celebrities, including Amitabh Bachchan and Oprah Winfrey, and is a best-seller.
