The hunt for the coveted Kingfisher Calendar girl 2012 has begun. The 15 contestants who made it from among hundreds of contestants across the country will be competing in various rounds to vie for the top prize. The show-stealer at the opener was actress Sonam Kapoor who walked tall in a figure-flattering black high-slit gown which she teamed with a loud ethnic neckpiece.
