And then when Gabriel Correa handed over the winner’s trophy and put that sash around me, it was the most incredible feeling. I knew I had it in me but frankly, the win was unexpected. But as they say, and now I firmly believe it too, that hard work definitely pays. And also, I would like to thank Miss India Organization for believing in me and giving me this opportunity to represent my country at Mister Supranational 2018” Prathamesh groomed and trained himself for this year’s contest and won the coveted title of Mister Supranational 2018.

My mom had started crying when they got to know that I had won. My parents were so happy that they cut a cake and partied the whole night the day I won. My friends have been calling me and showering me with their love and best wishes. “There’s so much excitement among all my relatives and even our neighbors, my school and college want to honor me. That’s’ what I call god’s blessings. It’s a beautiful feeling.” The third edition of Mister Supranational 2018 pageant took place on December 9, 2018 in Krynica-Zdrój, Poland. 39 finalists from around the globe competed for the coveted title of Mister Supranational 2018.
