Dental surgeon and health campaigner Dr Gullu Kuchhal was recently crowned Mrs UK India in the first pageant she ever participated in. Delighted with her success in UK, Gullu, 37, intends to use her new status as a platform to widen her campaign on smoking cessation, for better oral health. Later this month she will journey to India as part of her campaign work, that began many years ago, before she moved to England. For the past three years, Gullu, who lives with her husband and five-year old daughter in Wickersley, has worked as a professional fashion model in Sheffield.

She does this alongside her dentistry, believing that we should all explore whatever talents we might possess, to “broaden our horizons and hopefully motivate others towards healthy and happy living. The pageant category for married Indian women in the UK is a new one, and encourages women to leave their routines and take part in something different.
