At the conclusion of the event, India’s Shouryaditya Singh was elected 2nd runner-up. Along with winning this prestigious title, he also won two special awards including Mister Popularity 2021 and Best Speaker 2021 (runner-up). It was the very first time that India achieved so many milestones in a single year at the said event. Shouraditya Singh also became the only Asian model to enter the Top 5 of this prestigious international championship for men.
