Sushmita tells the story of the gown she wore in the short clip.

“We didn’t have enough money to afford designer outfits. We needed four costumes. We were middle-class people and we knew our restrictions.”

However, it was her mother who did not let her give up.

“My mother said, ‘So what? They are not going to look at your clothes, they are going to look at you.’ So we bought a piece of fabric from Sarojini Nagar market. Downstairs, in the garage, there was a local tailor who made petticoats. We gave him the material and said, ‘This will come on TV, make a good dress.’ He made my winning gown out of that fabric and my mother made a rose out of the remaining fabric. We bought brand new black socks, cut it, put elastic in it and then I wore them as gloves,” revealed Sushmita.

“The day I won Miss India wearing that gown was a very big day for me. You don’t need money to get what you want, your intention should be right,” she was heard talking in the video.
