If that is the side of beauty, she has not lagged behind in brains either. She was one of the academic toppers at Jain University while pursuing Electrical and Electronics Engineering studies.

Speaking about herself, she says that the traits of her strength are being a perfectionist, self-confident, focused and being a quick learner, not forgetting her father’s contribution in moulding her personality. She regards her being emotional and impatient as her weaknesses.

The winner of the title is Kanika Kapur who was adorned with the crown by Dimple Paul from Maharashra, who was winner in the last year’s edition. Srinidhi, along with second runner-up Gayatri R Suresh from Kerala, were crowned by Manappuram Finance MD and CEO V P Nandakumar.
