Sushmita Sen celebrates 29 years of her Miss Universe win, pens down note
May 21 holds a special place in actor Sushmita Sen’s life as she was crowned Miss Universe 29 years ago on the same date.
On Sunday early morning, the actor took to her Instagram account and penned down a heartfelt note on the special occasion. Sushmita shared a throwback picture and captioned it, “This picture is exactly 29 years old, shot by the epic man & photographer #prabuddhadasgupta. In the rawness of this picture, he beautifully captured an 18 year old me…with a smile he said, you realise you’re the first Miss Universe I’ve ever shot…I proudly added, it’s actually INDIA’s first ever Miss Universe.”
The beauty-queen-turned-actor competed against contestants from 77 countries around the world and became the first Indian woman to clinch the Miss Universe title in 1994. That same year, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was crowned Miss World.
