We were both like literally under the chairs. The entire hall erupted, all the Indians just stood up erupted.”
The video then shows Priyanka’s brother Sidharth on a video call, who said, “I remember at the Millenium Dome, being on the stage when I was only 11-12 years at the time. But mixed feelings for me were I was… that she won but the very next moment I learned that I would be going to the US for further studies instead of her.”
Following which, Priyanka’s mom says, “I had tears streaming down my eyes. I didn’t know what’s gonna happen. I just needed to hug her, that’s all I knew, And when I hugged her, I spoke the stupidest thing that should have been….” and the duo bursts out in laughter.
