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
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.
