Supriya was born and brought up in Nashik. After her father suffered huge losses in business, Supriya completed her education with her extended family’s support. With a knack in dancing, singing and acting as a kid, she performed at school, college and society functions and a prestigious group belonging to Padmashree Shaher Sable called Maharashtra Lokdhara Group. After completing her Engineering from Pune University, she left Nashik permanently and challenged her patriarchal upbringing by landing a job in Pune. With 12 years spent in the IT industry, she finally decided to pursue her passion in the Entertainment industry post marriage and motherhood.
Supriya comments on winning Mrs. Maharashtra, “As an IT professional, I was completely drowned in work and had no connection to the Beauty Industry. However I always had an Inner Calling to try something in the Entertainment Industry. Initially I was hesitant as I had put on a lot of weight post pregnancy and had to look after my 4 year old son in addition to managing my job. However once I expressed my desire to my husband, he encouraged me to compete in this pageant and was very supportive throughout the journey. He has been my biggest support.”
She further adds, “I also want to thank my Pageant coach, Ritika Ramtri. Even when she has coached so many celebrities, she is a grounded person and helped me take baby steps in training and mentoring as a sister, friend and confidante. In addition to this, I would like to thank my Fitness Trainer Yash Patel who inspired me to lose weight and become fit for the event. I believe the crown truly belongs to family members and other close aides for the extra efforts and going out of the way to help me. ”
Celebrity Coach, Ritika Ramtri, says “Supriya is an extremely hard-working, honest and passionate person. It was really great to work with her. Even after her feeling unwell during the pageant in Delhi, she kept her strong will intact and managed to bag one of the most prestigious titles. I look forward to seeing her pursue her passion and keep making us proud”
