After winning the beauty pageant like Miss Universe, Miss World, Priyanka Chopra, Sushmita Sen, Lara Dutta, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and many more have made a name for themselves in the glamour and glitzy world. However, seeing a bevvy of beauties in one frame is a treat to our sore eyes, right? On that note and since it’s Way Back Wednesday, we came across a throwback picture of the time when Indian beauties like Sushmita Sen, Priyanka Chopra Aishwarya Rai, Dia Mirza made India proud by owing Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Asia Pacific titles.
The picture has all the ladies posing for a photo while wearing their titled crown and stash. From left to right, Sushmita Sen was crowned as Miss Universe in 1994, then comes Priyanka Chopra who won the Miss World title in 2000, next to PeeCee is Lara Dutta who was seen flashing her warm smile as she wore Miss Universe 2000 stash around her. Yukta Mookey won Miss World title in 1999 and next to her we see the gorgeous Dia Mirza who was crowned as Miss Asia Pacific in 2000. Diana Hayden was Miss World in 1997 while the very well glamorous star Aishwarya Rai (now Bachchan) took the Miss World crown home in 1994.
This picture was taken at Miss India 2000 contest as we see Yukta Mookey wearing her Miss World crown and others aren't. Yukta went on to pass the Miss World 2000 crown to Priyanka Chopra later that year. Seeing this picture, netizens seemed to be loving this page as it made them nostalgic, one user commented, “These women made history, I don't think we will have a similar thing happening in pageants anymore. India is a true powerhouse.” While another one commented, “Amazing days!!! Let’s bring those memories back to life again soon.” After Priyanka Chopra, Manushi Chillar was the one who owned the Miss World title in 2017.
How often do we see these beauties in one frame? Almost, never! This indeed is a special photo.
