Sushmita Sen: The dignified Indian beauty Sushmita Sen stunned the world with her final answer during the beauty pageant Miss Universe 1994. It was the first time when India won the title of Miss Universe. Before bringing glory for India on an international platform, Sushmita bagged the title of Miss India in the same year.
In a previous interview on Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai, Sushmita Sen revealed her struggles and her rags-to-riches story.
“We did not possess so much money to afford designer gowns on stage; we were supposed to wear four unique costumes. We are ‘middle-class‘ people and we did experience our restrictions,” she revealed. However, despite the hurdles, it was the Main Hoon Na star’s mother who decided to get a customized gown for her.
She went to Sarojini Market and asked a petticoat tailor to sew her gown. “We provided to him the material and briefed him, ‘This will come on TV, so do a good job.’ He made my winning gown out of that fabric, and my mother placed a rose out of the remaining fabric,” Sushmita Sen added.

The gloves worn by the Biwi No 1 star were made out of stockings. She revealed that her mother cut up these stockings and added some elastic to it.
Sushmita Sen’s story is a morale booster for all those who think that they will be left behind in life because they lack something or the other. “The day I won Miss India wearing that gown endure an extremely memorable day for me. I realized that you didn’t require money to get what you want; your intention should be honorable,” she said.
