Sushmita posted a picture of herself dressed in a white dress with the 'Miss Universe' sash around her shoulder. In the photo, she is holding a toddler in her arms and smiling at her. Along with the photo, Sushmita wrote a note that read, "This little girl, whom I met in an orphanage, taught an 18-year-old me life’s most innocent yet profound lessons, ones that I live by to this day. This captured moment is 30 years old today, as is India’s first-ever Victory at Miss Universe!!! (sic)."

The 'Main Hoon Na' actor continued, "What a journey it’s been & continues to be... Thank you, India, for always being my greatest identity & strength!! Thank you, Philippines, for the unending love & belonging... Three decades & counting!! #mahalkita. I remember & celebrate your grace, my beautiful @carogomezfilm #teamo (sic)."

Revelling in her honour, Sushmita Sen thanked her fans and conveyed how their love has made a difference in her life. "To all my loved fans, friends, family & well-wishers around the worldâ€æ know that each one of you has made a difference to my life & inspired me in ways you may never know!! I feel the love!!! Thank you!!! WHAT AN HONOR!!! (sic)," the 48-year-old actor added.

As Sushmita shared the post on Instagram, several users showered her with love and compliments. One of them wrote, "@sushmitasen47 India may find another Miss Universe but finding another Sushmita Sen is impossible (sic)." Another chimed in, "@sushmitasen47 you will always be etched in our memory as the most relatable Miss Universe (sic)."

In 1994, Sushmita Sen made her Miss India debut, going up against Aishwarya Rai. The crown went to her. However, Sushmita revealed in a previous interview that she nearly withdrew the application when she found out Aishwarya was taking part. However, her mother convinced her.

"My mother said okay fine let her win. If you think that she’s the world’s most beautiful then lose from her. What’s the point of losing from someone else? Go give it your best shot," Sushmita said. Sushmita's most recent appeared in the Disney+ Hotstar series 'Aarya.'
