Mumbai: Remember Priyanka Chopra being crowned Miss India in 2000? Well, in the interview round, when a hose of celebrities were seated to ask the pageant contenders questions, PC had picked a chit that said – Shah Rukh Khan. The video has once again gone viral on the Internet.
SRK, known for his wit, asked him if she would like to marry a star like him. SRK questioned – “This is rather hypothetical. Who would you rather marry? A great Indian sportsman with all the records in Indian cricket like Azhar (Mohd Azharuddin) bhai here, who would make their country proud, take you all around the world where you swell with pride. Or an artistic businessman with a difficult name to pronounce like Swarovsky who will deck you with jewels and fine necklaces or a Hindi film star like me who has nothing better to do than to give you complicated, multiple choice questions for a hypothetical wedding like this?”
PC who is equally witty gave a brilliant answer and no wonder, she was crowned Miss India that year. She said, “If I was to choose one of these very three difficult choices, I think I’d go for a great Indian sportsman. Because when I come back home or he comes back home, I will be there to be his support, tell him I’m proud of him just as much as India is, to be able to tell him, ‘Hey, look you did your best and you are the best’. I will take immense pride in my husband who will be of strong character if he can bring so much pride to my country.”
