Sushmita Sen recalls her Miss India win to be quite unexpected
In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, Sushmita Sen recalled the momentous occasion of her Miss India and, subsequently, Miss Universe win. The diva mentioned that in the first place, she never expected to win at the Miss India level. However, when she won the next level, that was the first time when she learnt about the value of representing one’s own country at such a prestigious level. Elaborating more on her journey, Sushmita mentioned:
“I won Miss India, which I wasn’t expecting. And now comes the big onus of representing your country at Miss Universe, where India has never won before. So, you already have people saying ‘The best of the best have gone there and have not got it, where will this girl go.’ And, I’m thinking once in a lifetime opportunity. I want to go there wearing ‘India’ and comeback with something that no one has ever done before. I want to be India’s first. And that was driving enough force where just mummy, daddy, me and my brother were supporting me at that time.”
