Priyanka Chopra Jonas, this year, completed 2 decades in the entertainment industry. The actress who was crowned as Miss World in 2000, has broken stereotypes and is conquering the globe. Recalling the time when she was crowned, Priyanka sat down with her mother Madhu Chopra to remember the good old days. In an Instagram post, Priyanka shared footage of the crowning moment along with her mother Madhu's interesting confession.
The Instagram video opened to the moment when Priyanka was crowned as Miss World among three finalists. An emotional Priyanka hugged the runners up and the crown was placed on her head. 20 years later, she is a global star married to American pop singer Nick Jonas. Priyanka asked her mother whether she remembers the crowning moment. Madhu replied, “First runner-up was announced and Miss World is Miss India, Priyanka Chopra. We were both like literally under the chairs and the entire hall erupted, all the Indians just stood up erupted.”
Priyanka's younger brother Siddharth Chopra joined via video call and said, "I remember at the Millennium Dome being on the stage. I was only 11-12 years at the time. But mixed feelings for me were I was happy that she won but the very next moment I learned that I would be going to the US for further studies instead of her." Priyanka responded by saying, "Yeah, that was rough. I never even thought at that time what my win did to my family."
Recalling the day, Madhu further added, "I had tears streaming down my eyes what’s going to happen. I just need to hug her. And when I hugged her I spoke the stupidest thing -- Instead of telling her that I was so glad, so happy that you’re Miss World. I said, Babe, now what will happen to your studies."
