Mega Entertainment’s prestigious pageants continue to open opportunities for youths across northeast
Lukanand Kshetrimayum and Langpoklakpam Melody bring laurels to Manipur with momentous victories


Mega Entertainment, north east’s largest fashion and pageant event organizer, conducted a press conference in Imphal with an aim to introduce Lukanand Kshetrimayum and Langpoklakpam Melody, two children of Manipur who recently made waves across the northeast by winning the titles of Garnier Men Mega Mister North East and Sunsilk Mega Miss North East respectively. Lukanand also won the national title of Mister International India 2019, thus qualifying to solely represent India in the Mister International pageant.

The press conference was addressed by Abhijit Singha, Founder of Mega Entertainment, who said, “Mega Entertainment is the producer of two of the biggest regional beauty and fashion events in north east India - Mega Mister North East since 2009, and Mega Miss North East, since 2003. The two pageants have now grown in stature and repute with every passing year, and are now being labelled as the most coveted and the sought-after pageants in the whole region, showcasing the best of young talents.”

“The quality and awareness of the contestants have been constantly developing over the years, and it is truly encouraging to see them preparing for these pageants, months in advance. I am so glad to see the emergence of strong winners like Lukanand and Melody, who need just the basic amount of training, and are absolutely ready to become a part of the professional modelling industry”, added Singha. The other winners of Garnier Men Mega Mister North East are Jonathan Thangeo from Mizoram, who is the first youth from his state to win any pan-northeast pageant, and Sonam Paul Tenzing Bhutia from Sikkim. The other two winners of Sunsilk Mega Miss North East are Tanvi Raksam Marak from Meghalaya and Rajeswari Chakraborty from Sikkim.

Speaking to the media on the occasion, Lukanand and Melody shared their experiences from the pageant with the media and thanked the people of Manipur for giving them so much love and support.

Langpoklakpam Melody, who is pursuing bachelor’s degree in education, said, “This is so heart-warming, I am truly overwhelmed! The people of Manipur have welcomed me with open arms and open hearts. I never experience such love and affection before. Most importantly, the spark of pride that I see in my parents’ eyes gives me the strength to work even harder. I strongly believe that destiny has something planned for everyone and winning this pageant has opened a beautiful chapter in my life.”

Speaking about her victory in Sunsilk Mega Miss North East, Melody said, “Participating in Sunsilk Mega Miss North East and winning the pageant crown means a lot to me. I believe the pageant girl is all about honour - the honour of representing my community, my state, the honour of living every little girl’s dream, the honour to inspire many girls out there, of being a role model for the younger generation. I want to be a positive influence on everyone I cross paths with, and I strongly believe that Sunsilk Mega Miss North East will help me fulfil what I am passionate about.”

The 10th edition of Garnier Men Mega Mister North East, where Lukanand also won the title of Mister International India 2019, was supported by Title Sponsor Garnier Men- India’s no. 1 men’s face wash brand, Hospitality Partner Radisson Blu, Telecom Partner Vodafone SuperNet 4G, Photo Partner Sony Alpha and Styling Partner Sin Denim.

“I will treasure this moment in my heart forever. I feel proud of myself that I would win so many hearts and emerge as a winner. Thanks to Mega Entertainment team for adding me to their family and warm regards to Abhijit Singha, Kavita Keisham and the respected Jury members for offering me this stupendous opportunity. I thank God for giving me what I deserved,” said Lukanand who is currently a Class-XII student in Maria Montessori Senior Secondary School.

Speaking about the responsibility he holds towards his community as a youth icon, Lukanand Kshetrimayum said, “I hope our victory will motivate my peers from Manipur to believe that if we can make it big in the world of fashion, even they can. I will be more than happy to guide them to go forward in the same journey that I went. There is a lot of potential among the youth here, and pageants like these will help them get the stage that they deserve. I want to see the youngsters of Manipur achieving everything they deserve, not just in the regional platform, but nationally and internationally as well.”

Abhijit Singha established Mega Entertainment when he was just a teenager, and he defied all odds to single-handedly shape it as northeast’s most celebrated fashion and pageant company. In 2003, the company gave the northeastern region one of its first beauty pageants Mega Miss North East which proudly stands at 17 years today as the leading pageant here. Soon after, Abhijit conceptualized northeast’s first ever man-hunt Mega Mister North East which officially took off in 2009 and there has been no looking back ever since.

Mega Entertainment has been providing a national platform to the young talents of the region, even providing the winners a direct entry into illustrious fashion events like Mister International India. The main aim of organizing the Mega Miss & Mister North East pageants is to prove that young talents in the north-east are no less competent than their counterparts rising from the top metros of the country, and also to exhibit that the north-east can also match the classic appeal of the top pageants of the country.

Besides the pageants, Mega Entertainment has also delivered some radical fashion events in the region involving the crème-de-la-crème of the society.
