The Miss India Guyana Foundation launched the Mr India Guyana competition in early May of this year where five contestants were entered. However, because of the pandemic, they were unable to pull off that version of the competition. In that regard, these same competitors will compete for the title of Mr India Guyana next year, according to the organisation’s National Director, Hashim Ali. Entries are also open for this competition.
In May 2019, Rashena Hanif was crowned Miss India Guyana. The event also saw the crowning of Amisha Sarjoo as Miss Teen India Guyana 2019 and Kristal Inshan as Mrs India Guyana. With no pageant this year, the three queens will continue to reign until next year when they will crown their successors. Ali said that if deemed necessary, the pageants will be held virtually.
