Let’s recall one of Punjab’s best TV shows MISS PTC PUNJABI whose Grand Finale was held at our very own Lovely Professional University in October 2019. The event was a full packet of entertainment and fun. Thousands of fans had come to see the show live and were joined by the students of the university as well. The reason for the excitement wasn’t just to know who would win the show but to witness live power-packed musical performances of some well-known Punjabi artists like Jazzy B, Ninja, Neha Bhasin, Gurnam Bhullar, Zora Randhawa and Gippy Grewal with Zareen Khan joining him to grace the event.

I was handling the event on the front with the PTC Punjabi crew, all thanks to LPU for providing me with such an opportunity. I was sitting near the Judge’s panel which included Neha Bhasin, Satinder Satti, Gurpreet Chaddha and Bobby Layal.

The event started with the performances of the nine finalists for their bridal wear round.

It was followed by a performance of Zora Randhawa and a performance by Neha Bhasin.

The second round of MISS PTC PUNJABI which was Gidha Round was followed by a performance of Gurnam Bhullar and Jazzy B.

Then it was the last special guest performance by Gippy Grewal with Zareen Khan on the stage; the duo mesmerized the audience with their power-packed performance.

And finally, it was the result time, where Rehmat Rattan from Jammu and Kashmir was declared as the winner of Miss PTC Punjabi 2019. She bagged the Miss PTC Punjabi crown and a cash prize of 1.5 lakh while Sukhroop Kaur from Ludhiana was awarded the first runner-up title, bagging a cash prize of Rs 50,000 from the judges. Supreet Kaur from Malot got the second runner-up title and received the cheque of Rs 35,000 as her prize money.

It was an emotional and special moment for all the winners and all their family members came running to the stage after hearing their loved one’s name. It was a very special moment for me also as I witnessed the event live, besides handling it! It was also special as the winner Rehmat Rattan belonged to the same place as mine.

Overall it was a mesmerizing experience for everyone, from the audience on the set to the audience on their TV screens at home. Seeing so many popular figures and celebrities at a single place and that too at our campus is a specialty that only LPU can provide. 

The involvement of LPU in all the major events provides us with not only entertainment but also a lot of opportunities to work and gain experience.
