Priyanka Chopra who is now a successful actress and a producer, reminisced the moment when she clinched the Miss World title 16 years back. She said she had no idea of what she was getting into and now fondly remembers it through a tweet.
Priyanka re-tweeted on Wednesday a fan's post on the crowning moment at the prestigious pageant. She captioned it: "Wow... 18-year-old me with no idea of what I was getting into. But what a ride it's been. Thank you all. Miss World 2000."
On November 30, 2000, Priyanka was crowned Miss World and made India proud. She was the fifth Indian woman to bag the prestigious title. Like most of the former beauty queens, she also tried her hand at movies and was successful in it.
After making her Bollywood debut in 2003 with The Hero: Love Story of a Spy, she went on to star in critically acclaimed films like Fashion, 7 Khoon Maaf, Barfi! and Mary Kom. The Padma Shri awardee has also carved a niche for herself on foreign shores. In 2012, she entertained music lovers with her international hit number 'In My City' which also featured American rapper Will.I.Am. Priyanka would also debut in Hollywood with the movie Baywatch in 2017.
