When Sushmita Sen Won Miss Universe Pageant
When Aishwarya was asked the question "If you have to look for qualities in a husband, would you look for the qualities in Ridge Forrester from Bold & Beautiful or in Mason Capwell from Santa Barbara?", she responsed, "Mason. They do have a lot in common, but from what we see, Mason has a very caring side to him, and a terrific sense of humour. And that really gels with my character."
Sushmita, on the contrary, was asked "What do you know about the textile heritage of your country and how long has it been around?" Her answer: "I think it all started with Mahatma Gandhi's Khadi. It has gone a long way since then but the basics of Indian textile heritage has been from there."
