  • Where is all this prize money coming from?

    Despite its advances in recent years the general population of India is fairly poor and while bodybuilding has grown there (primarily in Bollywood) its still not that big. Where are the organizers coming up with such a huge purse? It wouldnt be the first time when bodybuilders competed and then didnt get paid later on.

      The majority of people who live in india cant afford any kind of supplements they have for sale. 5000 rupees for one can of protein powder isnt something most people there can swing.

          The population of India is close to a billion with a majority being poor, but the middle class make up approximately 50million and is expected to rise over 200million in the next 10 years. There are probably more people there who can afford supps then some countries in Europe or states in the USA. Plus India definitely wouldn't be short on bodybuilding schmoes. A lot of millionaires there so chances are one could be helping finance it.

              Guys , the prize money is for real.

              And for your info , india is not poor anymore.

              People are crazy about bodybuilding out here.

              And 7000rs for 10 lbs whey protein is nothing out here , most of the people use it now without hassles.

              Its a thriving industry here in india now

                The economy in India and China is booming. If my facts are correct, the economy in India experienced a growth of 8,5% in 2010. The years before and this year are no different.
                Although a lot of people are poor in India, the mid and upper classes are getting richer. Adding a couple of sponsors and tv contracts in the mix and 150 grand is easy money.
