Max, the leading international fast fashion brand has announced its new property ‘Max Emerging Star’ which will serve as the perfect platform for India’s aspiring actors, dancers and fashion enthusiasts to fulfill their dreams and get groomed for superstardom. The contest is focused on the search for the most fashionable aspirant: Mr. and Miss Max Emerging Star, who has talent, the right body language, attitude and the passion to get closer to making it to Bollywood.
