The press statement quoted Rauniar as saying, “We are happy to wish Nisha to the Miss Intercontinental stage where she is sure to turn up the heat in Sharm el Sheik.

In the event, the organizers showcased national costume, finale gown and Nepal’s introduction video which is inspired by the Tharu community’s costume that is modified without losing the cultural essence for the international stage.
It added that the blouse has mirror work and the coins which are inspired from Rana Tharu culture are used. While the white base is inspired from the Tharu culture in the East starting from Chitwan.
