A Quiet, Introverted Girl Entered The Femina Miss India Contest To Have Some Fun. She Walked Away With 3 Titles – Miss Beautiful Smile, The Sony Viewers’ Choice Award And Femina Miss India-asia Pacific.
As A Career Move, The Hyderabad Girl Shifted To Mumbai, Away From Home And Family. Compromises Have Been Difficult, But Necessary. At 18, she was one of the triumphant trio that bagged every title that year – Miss Universe, Miss World and her own Miss Asia Pacific, 2000. She was initially a little hesitant about getting into movies – “I thought it would be such a predictable career move for the winner of a beauty pageant.” But actor Anupam Kher managed to convince her otherwise and she signed his film Om Jai Jagdish, though her first release was Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, a remake of the Tamil blockbuster, Minnale. The first time she faced the camera was for a scene in Deewaanapan which was released later.
