Priyanka Chopra celebrates 20 years of being crowned Miss World
The actress posted a video clip recollecting conversations she had with her mother and brother post the crowning.
Celebrating one of the most cherished moments of her life, actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Tuesday recalled the moment she was crowned Miss World 2000, and the first thing her mother said to her post the crowning ceremony.
The Baywatch star posted a clip on Instagram on that chronicled the moment and her conversation with mother and brother post the crowning. Following her being crowned the voiceover says, “This is remarkable. This is the fifth time India has won Miss World.”
Priyanka is seen beaming with happiness as she waves at the audience.
The clip then shows a later date when the star is seen seated next to her mother, Madhu Chopra. Priyanka asks her mother, "Do you remember the crowning moment of when I won Miss World?”
Madhu replies, “First runner up was announced, and Miss World is Miss India, Priyanka Chopra. We were both like literally under the chairs. The entire hall erupted, all the Indians just stood up erupted (sic).”
The video then shows Priyanka on a video call to brother Sidharth, who said, “ I remember at the Millenium Dome, being on the stage when I was only 11, 12 years at the time. But mixed feelings for me... that she won but the very next moment I learned that I would be going to the US for further studies instead of her (sic).”
After some more conversation, Madhu said, “Instead of telling her that I’m so glad, so happy that you’re Miss World. I said babe, now what will happen to your studies?”
They both laughed as they remembered those moments.
Priyanka captioned the clip on the photo-sharing platform as, “Miss World, 2000... Picture this... I just turned 18 and won Miss World!! When I finally reunited with my parents among all the chaos on stage, the first thing my mom said to me was “babe, what’s going to happen with your studies?” #IndianMom #20in2020.”
