The caption is, “The #rebel yours truly almost 18 yrs old, a few months away from winning Miss Universe!! Nothing about me was ever conventional, not my looks, beliefs or actions!! I always knew, no matter what I did for a living, my uniqueness was non negotiable!!! Needlessly to say, my journey has not been easy but boy, how immensely gratifying!!! No matter the many challenges that followed, nothing could break this little girl’s spirit, 25 years later, still...nothing can! proud of you kid!!! #sharing #partofme #yearofcelebrations #missuniverse1994 #25yrs #india #duggadugga LIVE REAL!!! I love you guys!!!”

On the personal front, Sen is dating model Rohman Shawl and often shares pics and videos with him on Instagram. The two made things official last year when Shawl wrote a heartfelt birthday wish for his lady love. Things seem to be getting serious between the two and we absolutely love looking at them together.

Here's extending heartiest congratulations to the diva, for both her professional and personal endeavors!
