The most gorgeous actor of the Bollywood industry Aishwarya Rai revealed how the same things happened before Miss India and Miss World in her interview.

Aishwarya was the first runner-up at the Femina Miss India pageant in 1994, losing the crown to Sushmita Sen. However, she later won the Miss World crown that same year.

In her old interview with an International news agency, she saw between the two events, starting for the heaps of expectations put on her.

She stated, “Uh oh, the signs are the same as Miss India, they were exactly the same. There was this whole level of expectations from me. Strangely and wonderfully, the same thing happened at Miss World. Even though you go as an absolutely non-entity. No one judges you there. You are representing your country. Within that month, I had become very very popular and there was a lot of Indian-international press. Among the select few contestants, I was billed as a very strong contestant and the possible winner. I thought this can’t be happening again to me. I don’t quite like the feel of it.” After she lost the Miss India crown to Sushmita, Aishwarya said that the whole ‘tamasha’ was put up in the media, pitting the two against each other.

“Just before I left for Miss India, the zipper on my final gown had broken. These are little things, not that I am superstitious. So my zip had split and my gown was dropped there by the designer to Goa. The same thing happened during Miss World, on the evening that I was flying out. It was the final trial, the zip split and it all had to be repaired. It came in later that it rained here, it rained there. I was like this is ridiculous,” she further added.
