Vastavam web:Srisubha Addepalli, of Krishna district working as an IT specialist was crowned Miss India South Africa Gauteng 2017. The 25-year-old has been working for a leading bank here on contract basis for 18 months. Apart from fairing the best in other segments of the contest, Addepalli also performed a dance number, which was well-received by the jury. “Dance is my passion and because we were only allowed a maximum of three minutes, I chose three segments to represent different parts of my life. I was born and brought up in a family where all the emotions are very smooth and gentle. “So, I first portrayed myself as a gentle lady and then when I experienced sadness and troubles in my life, such as when I lost my father. Finally, I depicted my search for who I am – all in that short time,” she told.
