Q:You have brought great pride to Sri Lanka with this victory, tell us about this experience.
Winning the Mr. Intellectual title was truly an honour and also it helped me to uplift my country among the top Southeast Asian countries, the competition was insane, but I’m grateful to God for guiding me to gain this title. Mr. Model Worldwide is one of the inaugural events that happened and I’m truly honoured to represent my country on the first edition of this event. Winning an international title is not an easy task for any person, as it needs lot of dedication as well as the knowledge to face each situation put before you.

Q: Is there anyone you want to thank for your success?
I am especially grateful to Lou Ching Wong for designing my exquisite costume, for identifying my talent, and for grooming me to represent the country at this pageant. I am also thankful for my present workplace CWT globe link (Pvt) Ltd, Managing Director Mario Fonseka and Dushyanthi Welivitagoda, and finally my family who helped me throughout the competition.
