It’s been 20 years since Priyanka Chopra won the Miss World title, and from time to time, the global icon loves to bring back our memories with flashback videos of the big day. Just yesterday, Chopra used her Instagram account to share a video about how her family reacted on the day she bagged the crown, November 30, 2000. Didn’t we all wonder what they could have told her in that overwhelming moment?
Seated side by side in the video, Priyanka and mom Madhu Chopra revealed unknown details as they changed their lives in this new clip. “Miss World is Miss India: Priyanka Chopra!” Madhu Chopra remembered with a smile on her face. The doctor turned film producer then talked about how the entire hall exploded with joy when Chopra’s victory was announced, with fans and supporters giving a standing ovation to Miss World 2020. During the video call, Priyanka’s brother Siddharth also revisited the mixed feelings that gripped him at the time, when he realized that he was now going to go to the United States for further study instead of his sister.
For Priyanka, however, one of the most interesting memories of the day was the moment when, amid the applause, happiness, excitement and haste, her mother asked an unexpected question. “When I hugged her, I said the stupidest thing,” Madhu Chopra explained. “Instead of telling her that ‘I’m so happy, so happy that you’re Miss World’, I said, ‘Baby, what’s going to happen to your studies now?'” Mom’s hilarious and super recognizable moment has two bursts of laughter.
Looking back, it’s safe to say that Chopra has embarked on the right career path after the Miss World pageant, and her family’s support in all of this is something she talks about often. If you want more sneak peeks of his show days, you need to check out these images.
