The top contestants were chosen for their participation in the dance, singing, fashion, and a number of other independent talent competitions that were held in various colleges. The finale was recently held at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, Delhi, where girls competed for the crown. Medha Arya from Bangalore emerged as the winner and Pune girl Anugya Sharma was declared the runner up.
