Such threatened by Aish?

Well, it is no novelty that Sushmita Sen defeated Aishwarya Rai, and became the selected candidate for 1994’s Miss India Contest and went on to represent and then also win the Miss Universe Crown for India, but what not much people are aware of, is the favct that this bong beauty almost withdrew her name from that year’s pageant when she learned that super beautiful Aishwarya Rai was also participating in the same.

However, much to everyone’s surprise, Sushmita won the the title of ‘Femina Miss India’ beating Aishwarya Rai . Held in Manila, Philippines in 1994, Sushmita represented India at the age of eighteen and became the first Indian woman to become Miss Universe.

Aishwarya too made India proud and justified being one of the most envied women, by winning the crown for India at the Miss World pageant held that year.
