Actor Neha Dhupia has penned an emotional note marking 20 years of her Miss India journey. Neha, who was last seen in the film A Thursday, was felicitated at the Miss India finale on July 3 by her parents celebrating her win two decades ago. Her husband actor Angad Bedi and two children Mehr and Guriq also joined her.
Neha, who was one of the jury members at the 2022 edition of the beauty pageant, shared a photo of herself in a shimmery ensemble standing on stage with her crown while she was seemingly giving a speech with the note. The actor alongside the note also shared other photos of her with her family followed by a picture with her parents on the pageant’s stage and at last, she shared a collage of her photos from 20 years ago when she won Miss India and the current one.
Neha Dhupia Pens Emotional Note
“20 years that went by in a flash … but if I shut my eyes and think, all I have is gratitude in my heart. I didn’t think that it would be possible to wear this crown on stage again and relive one of the most precious moments of my life with my most precious people,” the actor wrote about her winning the crown two decades ago in 2002.
The actor then continued speaking about her emotions and wrote, “20 years later I stood taller, stronger, more experienced and a few dress sizes bigger 🙂 … but most importantly I stood for every little girl who dares to dream and work hard towards it, for every daughter who wants nothing more than to make her parents proud, for every partner who basis their relationship on love and equality and for every mother who wants to live her dream and wants nothing more than to have her children by her side as she does that.”
Dhupia ended the note with an inspirational tone and wrote, “sometimes in life even if we don’t have a crown … we all have our sparkle.”
Her friends from the showbiz poured congratulatory messages for Dhupia. Actor and author Soha Ali Khan wrote, “Hear hear! Well done Neh you really can have it all [heart emojis].” While actor model Sophie Chaudhary wrote, “Beautifully said Neh!! Very proud of you. Shine on.”
