When Sushmita Sen assured us we’d have a third Miss Universe soon! – Beauty Pageants – Indiatimes

After 21 years, our country has won back the prestigious Miss Universe crown and as Indians, we couldn’t be more proud. A week ago, Harnaaz Kaur Sandhu was crowned Miss Universe 2021 by the outgoing queen, Andrea Meza, at the 70th edition of the international pageant. While we continue to celebrate the feat, a video of our first-ever queen, Sushmita Sen, predicting the win has been doing the rounds.

The epitome of grace and elegance, Sushmita is an inspiration to women not just in India, but worldwide. In the video that surfaced, we see the diva speaking about India’s triumphant moments with utmost passion.

During a press meet a few years ago, a journalist tried to compare her career success with that of Priyanka Chopra’s and Aishwarya Rai’s; however, she praised her fellow actresses for their achievements. While he continued to prod her, asking her to comment on the ‘two women who were crowned Miss Universe after her’ (referring to Priyanka and Aishwarya), she gently corrected him and said, “Ji, mere baad Lara Dutta bani hai, aur uske baad, unfortunately, humein koi Miss Universe mili nahi ab tak. Magar milegi, ab milegi, kyunki humara waqt aa gaya hai (After me, Lara Dutta won Miss Universe, and unfortunately, we have not had a Miss Universe since then. But we will get one now because our time has come).

As we witnessed the glorious win of Harnaaz on the dignified platform, we reminisce the passion with which Sushmita assured us we would soon have a winner succeeding Lara Dutta.

Sharing her own experiencing while representing our country, she said, “To wear India on your chest, to represent your country, it’s a feeling I have known. And when I see someone else do it, I start crying. It’s just an emotional thing for me.”

On the work front, Sushmita, who made her acting comeback with the Disney+ Hotstar series titled ‘Aarya,’ is celebrating the success of the show’s second season.
