Guess who’s going to judge the upcoming 65th edition of Miss Universe pageant? It’s none other than former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen. This will be a beautiful throwback since Sen will be going back to the Manila stage 23 years later where she had won her crown in 1994.
Sen will be one of the judges of the panel of the upcoming 65th edition of Miss Universe pageant, which is scheduled to take place in Manila on January 30. Back in 1994, Sen created history by becoming the first Miss India Universe.
The Bollywood actress took to her social media handle excitedly to announce her comeback on the stage, only this time as a judge.
“Getting ready with a dancing heart! I am so excited, emotional and looking forward to returning home to the Philippines after 23 years,” Sushmita wrote by posting a photo of herself from the make-up room.
She added: “It’s where it all began Manila 1994, Miss Universe 1994. Life comes a full circle, from winning Miss Universe, to having owned its Indian franchise to now. Returning back to Manila this time as a judge at the 65th Miss Universe pageant!
“To all my Filipino friends who have been graciously asking. I can now confirm… Yes, I am coming!”

The event will happen at the Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay, Metro Manila, Philippines where Roshmitha Harimurthy will represent India at the contest. Good luck to her!
