Sushmita Sen reminisces about her win at 1994 Miss Universe pageant and says she looks back at the event, 26 years later with a lot of goodness and gratitude. Sushmita shared a video on her Instagram page, which featured her pictures from her journey, childhood, the pageantry, and life thereafter.
Sushmita captioned the video saying, "A princess with a crown and a queen of people's hearts for 26 years! What a magical fairy tale I have lived, where beauty is God's handwriting, character is self-realised, all of it in a loving universe that is inclusive, abundant filled with empathy, compassion, gratitude and so much goodness of good people."
She further wrote, "I celebrate you and I celebrate with you! India won Miss Universe for the first time this day in 1994. It will forever remain my life's greatest pride and honour to be the face of history for my country..."
