Mehru Khan - Miss NRI Global 2005
Vol: 1 Num: 1    Winter 2006
Pakistan born Mehru Khan won the pageant and wants to change the image of Pakistani women

Pakistan born, Mehru Khan says that winning the Miss NRI Global pageant has changed her life in “a really positive way”. Not only has she got the recognition that she wanted but also it has given her confidence to put her talents to good use.

Beauty pageants are still taboo in Pakistan  – its government once tried to dissuade Miss International Beauty pageant from allowing Neelam Noorani to compete as Miss Pakistan. So it is not surprising that Mehru is proud of her accomplishment and wants to change the image of Pakistani women.

She is changing it one step at a time. First she won Miss Congeniality award at Miss Asia USA pageant, then Miss NRI Global and coming next is a career in entertainment industry.

A criminal justice graduate of Loyola University, Mehru works for a law firm in Chicago and is actively pursuing a career in entertainment industry. At the moment she is focusing on modelling, doing  promotional shows and producing a music CD – a fusion of pop, R&B and Indian. On the side she is also moonlighting as an actress in Hollywood movies. She has already done bit roles in couple of Jennifer Ansiton movies, including Derailed, in which they both hop into a train together at Chicago’s Union Station. §
