The year 2000 is regarded as the pinnacle of the Indian beauty pageant industry. It was a historic year for India, as it won three important titles: Miss Universe, Miss World, and Miss Asia Pacific, and we owe it all to three stunning women: Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra, and Dia Mirza.
Dia Mirza shared an old photo on Instagram with Miss India Universe Lara Dutta, Miss India World Priyanka Chopra, and Dia herself as Miss India Asia Pacific.
All three girls look lovely in their trendy outfits as they pose with warm and confident smiles in front of the camera in this snapshot from the year 2000. Sharing the picture, Dia captioned the post, “Throwing it back to the year 2000 with @priyankachopra @larabhupathi #TBT #ThursdayThrowback”.
While Lara Dutta was crowned Miss India in 2000, Priyanka Chopra was the first runner-up, and Dia Mirza was the second runner-up. The three stunning ladies then went on to win the prestigious titles of Miss Universe, Miss World, and Miss Asia Pacific in the same year.
