Sushmita Sen, who was the former Miss Universe and Bollywood actress will be on the judge’s panel of the upcoming 65th edition of Miss Universe pageant, which will take place on January 30 in the Philippines. It’s special for the actress as she had won her crown in Manila itself in 1994.

"Getting ready with a dancing heart! I am so excited, emotional and looking forward to returning home to the Philippines after 23 years," Sushmita tweeted alongside a photograph 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!" 

Sushmita shared the news on Instagram. It was in 1994 in Manila, Philippines only when Sushmita was crowned the winner.
