Priyanka Chopra Jonas is one of the most loved celebrities both in India as well as around the globe and is one of the few Indian stars who have found a strong foothold in Hollywood and have gone onto share the screen space with arguably the biggest global superstar at the moment, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the main protagonist in the superhit movie “Baywatch”.
However, it was not a cakewalk in the biggest movie industry of the world for our “Desi Girl” as she had to struggle her way to the top of the tree. In a recent video post on Instagram, Priyanka Chopra Jonas celebrated the completion of 20 glorious years in the entertainment industry, which started off after she won the Miss India pageant in 2000. In the Insta post, the “Quantico” girl was seen going down the memory lane as she looked at the old videos from the Miss India contest in 2000. She was self-critical and giggled all her way through the video as she looked at her antics during the ramp walks and the “bizarre” dresses that were in trend at that time.
“What is this crown of thorns on my head? Did I think I was Jesus?!” exclaimed the former Bollywood beauty as she looked at one of her ramp walking videos from the Miss India pageant. The former Miss World, who is currently settled in the USA having married Nick Jonas last year, was all cheered up as she looked wide-eyed while reminiscing the moments from what she dubbed as her first step towards Tinseltown.
Talking about the excerpts from Miss India 2000 contest, Priyanka picked out the last round as one of the moments to share with her fans. In the final round, where a few questions are asked to the contestants, which are not easy by any means, Priyanka spoke about the question she had to face from the judges. The question went like this, “If you were the God in the garden of Eden, who would you punish for your eternal sin, Adam, Eve or Satan?”
Her answer was, “I would punish Satan the serpent because I believe that evil is instigated not created. Eve thought Satan was right. She believed him. Let us get a moral from this, to decipher between good and bad without being biased.”
It goes without saying that her answer was impressive enough for the judges to choose her as the winner of the coveted crown. And rest, as we know, is history.
Let us take a look at the video that she had shared on her Instagram account:
We love you Priyanka!
