Introduced to the glamour arena as the younger sister of popular actress Shilpa Shirodkar, Namrata Shirodkar won the Miss India title in 1993 and finished at the sixth place in the Miss Universe pageant. She also represented the country in the Miss Asia Pacific contest and was chosen as the first runner-up. On Thursday, Namrata took a trip down memory lane and remembered her Miss India winning moment in 1993.
Sharing a video of the final stages of the contest, the 48-year-old actress penned an inspiring note for all girls and urged them to be themselves and dream big. She wrote “Many moments relived 🥰 the excitement, the butterflies, the craziness of it all… its all about that moment 😍😍😍 One life is all we’ve got. Go on and make it worthwhile.. Dream big!! The one thing that you have that nobody else does is YOU’. This has always been my mantra!! For all the girls who dream ❤️❤️ make it happen… nothing is impossible!! Was asked a tricky question that dates back centuries!! This was my answer… What would yours be? 😁😁”
In the 8-minute clip, all the three finalists can be seen walking the ramp and answering a tricky question, “who came first, chicken or the egg.” Eventually, the ‘Pukar’ actress was crowned the winner.
Recently, Shilpa Shirodkar shared a throwback video from the same pageant where her younger sibling was asked to respond on this out-of-the-ordinary question by the host. “If you woke up one morning and found Count Dracula sleeping in your bed, what would you do?” After thinking for a couple of seconds, Namrata responded by saying “Well, I would be really frightened but then I would make friends with him.”
Namrata Shirodkar has successfully donned the hats of a Bollywood actress and popular model during her prime and is currently fulfilling her responsibility as a perfect wife to Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu and dotting mother to two beautiful kids. While the Sarkaru Vaari Paata actor is usually busy with his film shootings and brand endorsements, the 48-year-old oversees everything at home including the upbringing of Gautham and Sitara. Besides acting as an adviser to her hubby when it comes to business investments, she also satisfies his massive fan base by posting their family pictures on social media.
