Sushmita entered the Miss India contest in 1994 and shook the world by winning the title with her elegance and charm. It is believed that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was considered for the top spot. Rumour has it, many contestants backed out when they saw Aishwarya as a participant. But our leading beauty queen and all time fav actress became the first-ever Indian to win the crown for India.
Sushmita Sen has worked in various hits such as Biwi No.1 and Main Hoon Na and many other films.
