The 18-year-old dusky beauty, along with the other contestants, Gloria Tep and Rushali Rai participated in the finale, judged by the show’s mentors Lisa Haydon, Dabboo Ratnani, Anusha Dandekar and Neeraj Gaba.

“When I auditioned for the show, I had no idea that I would make it through to the first round of elimination, let alone winning the show. I am so happy and thrilled to have won ‘IndiaÂ’s Next Top Model’.

“I’m just a normal teenager who got to work with the biggest names in the industry at such a young age and also got to be mentored by Lisa Haydon, Neeraj Gaba, Anusha Dandekar and Dabboo Ratnani,” Canute, who’s in the second year of graduation, said in a statement.

Calling it an “unreal” experience, Canute added that it “is the biggest platform I could have got.”
