'Midst Dance And Music, Sikhs Crown Mr Singh

Uday Kuckian and Abhishek Mande watch hunks from across the country put their best foot forward in this unique community fashion show.

On October 29, the Sikh community in Mumbai came together and cheered for brawny hunks from across the country at Shanmukhananda Hall in Sion, where they participated in Mr Singh India, a fashion show for Sikh men.

As the 20 strapping young men flexed their muscles, you could hear catcalls from the audience -- some even from a few elderly ladies!

The dance troupe that performed in two separate segments of the show is made up of both men and women who keep regular day jobs and pursue this as a hobby.
