Powai seems to be in the news for winning beauty contests. Priyam recently participated and won the title of Sheque Mrs India Asia Pacific and Sheque Mrs Fashion Icon.
Priyam hails from a respectable and educated middle-class family. Her father is a Homeopathy Doctor and her mother was the Principal of a college. Her elder sister is a Doctorate in English Literature. Priyam is a graduate in English literature, holds a Diploma in Journalism & Mass Communication, an MBA in HR and also completed a course in acting. She also learnt Kathak dance for 5 years. After her education, she anchored musical and educational shows, worked in serial, ads, albums for the TV and T-Series and walked the ramp. She worked as an Administration and Centre Head in a Direcway - an educational Venture that provides MBA online courses from all the IIM's.
After marrying Arvind Kumar, she trained herself to be a news reader. On completion of the course as she was preparing to look for a job in Delhi, her husband had to shift base to Hyderabad. Priyam was forced to take up a corporate job in Hyderabad as she couldn't do a TV job or acting because of the language barrier. While she loves to learn new things she is candid to accept that learning a new language has never been her forte.
After staying 3 years in Hyderabad the family moved to Mumbai 8 years back as her husband landed himself a good opportunity in the city that never disappoints anybody. On reaching Mumbai, Priyam started to work towards realising her dream of becoming an actor. But destiny had other plans. Mumbai blessed her with a second son and she had to set aside her acting dreams and give all the care and attention to the new born child. After the children grew up and things settled down, she did an acting course and started scouting for work. But like every new entrant in the glamorous industry she found the journey far from being smooth and easy. Till date she has done 1 ad and a short movie for the Singapore film festival.
But destiny can change in a evening and that is exactly what happened with Priyam. She was at a party with her son when her friend mentioned to her about Sheque Mrs. India Contest - an initiative of Kantha Entertainment. Priyam had nothing to lose so she decided to give the audition. And as luck would have it she got selected in that audition for the finale. The event was held in the beautiful pink city - Jaipur. In the finale many contestants assembled from different states. All participants were made to go through various sessions yoga, grooming, personality development, wellness, etc. Ramp walk for various rounds were choreographed. Directors of Kantha Entertainment put in their sweat and blood to make the it a grand event and they were successful in doing so.
It was indeed a sweet event for Priyam as she bagged the crown for Sheque. Mrs. India and for Sheque Mrs. Fashion Icon. My Powai wishes Priyam all the very best for her future endeavours.
