When the B-town diva Sushmita Sen became the first Indian to be crowned Miss Universe in 1994, the whole country felt pride with all applause. It has been 24 years since her tremendous win, but the 43-year-old, who afterward went on to become an actress, still feels connected to the renowned beauty pageant. Since Miss Universe 2018 was announced last night, and the Philippines’ Catriona Gray clinched the prestigious crown Sushmita made it a point to pat on her back .
Worth mention here in 1994, when Sushmita became Miss Universe, the competition was hosted by the Philippines so the actress has a special place in her heart for the nation.
The gorgeous actress took to her Twitter handle earlier today to post a message that read, “Congratulations #Philippines Another richly deserved victory A stunning & well spoken #MissUniverse2018 Catriona Gray Mahal Kita from Sush Mita I love you guys!!!!”
Catriona titled the 2018 Miss Universe crown after beating contestants from 93 countries, and became the fourth Philippines national to clintch the title. On the other hand, Mumbai’s Nehal Chudasama, who was India’s representative in the competition that was held in Bangkok, was not successful to make it to the Top 20, but greeted the new Miss Universe on social media.
