In 2019, a group of friends from Goa, came up with the idea to start an event management organization to support the young talent of the state. Little did they know that within a couple of years, that organization was going to become the foremost pageant organization of Goa. It was AB productions, founded by Indian soldier and model, Abrar Naik.
AB productions is the parent organization of Mr. and Miss Goa competitions. Both the pageants are state level preliminary events for the national level pageants – Rubaru Mr. India and Rubaru Miss India Elite. AB productions is currently being managed by five individuals that took up different roles and responsibilities after the formation of the organization. They are,

The following year, he represented Goa at the nation’s biggest men’s pageant – Rubaru Mr. India. In 2019, he came up with the idea of expanding and dilating the Mr. and Miss Goa competitions that contributed to the formation of AB productions.

The first event organized by AB Productions was Mr. and Miss Pernem. It was held on June 8, 2019. It was followed by the staging of Mr. and Miss Goa competition, to elect Goa’s representatives for Rubaru Mr. India and Rubaru Miss India Elite beauty pageants. The 2019 Mr. and Miss Goa pageant was held on December 4, 2019 at Salcete Beach Resort in Colva. The event was attended by the vice president of Rubaru Mr. India pageant, Pankaj Kharbanda and Goa’s very own international beauty queen, Nakita Tania Fernandes. The event was a huge success and led to solidification of AB Productions as the leading pageant organization of Goa. The reigning Mr. and Miss Goa winners will soon be seen representing Goa at the next edition of Rubaru Mr. India and Rubaru Miss India Elite beauty pageants. All thanks to Abar, Sonu, Arhana, Anokh and Sandesh for giving Goa’s its very own state-level beauty pageant.
