To celebrate this, Veet India - a name synonymous with depilatories - held a special beauty pageant entitled Veet 'Be The Diva'. The grand finale was held in Mumbai on Friday and our very own MissMalini was on the esteemed panel of judges. Isn't that awesome?! (Psst, I'll let you in on a secret she wasn't very intimidating!)

The event kick-started with the casual wear round where the contestants strutted around in shorts, ganjis and flirty mini dresses piled with neon accessories.

With the average of the girls ranging from 16-18 it's amazing how much poise and confidence they had. No mean feat!
