Indian pride, Priyanka Chopra Jonas is celebrating her 20 years in the entertainment industry this year with #20in2020 on social media.
The former beauty queen turned actress and singer kicked off her trip down memory lane by sharing a reaction video to her humble beginnings at Femina Miss India 2000, where it all started.
Watching the footage 20 years later, Priyanka took notice of her costume, thick long hair, and 90’s inspired makeup but one of its highlights was her answer to the question “If you were God in the garden of Eden, who would you punish – Adam, Eve or Satan?”
Priyanka thought it was a tough one and her answer, “I would punish Satan, the serpent because I believe that evil is instigated not created. Eve thought Satan was right. She believed him. Let us get a moral from this, to decipher between good and bad without being biased,” was clever and profound.
On her crowning moment, Priyanka confessed she never expected to win. She said, “I was not supposed to. I had a train booked and I was supposed to go back and give my board exams and I had a crown on my head.”
Prior to becoming one of India’s highest-paid and most popular personalities, and Nick Jonas’ wife, Priyanka was crowned Femina Miss India World 2000 and went on to win her country’s fifth Miss World title in London at age 18.
Priyanka has come a long way since then. She has received numerous accolades for her performances in films and was honored to be named as one of the most influential people in the world by Time and the world’s most powerful women by Forbes.
