Recalling how her competitive side helped her win the Miss Asia Pacific International title in her late teens, she added, "When I learned that I would be representing India at the Miss Asia Pacific International pageant, I became determined to win that crown. I was just in my late teens, but I doubled down on my efforts. I watched my diet, I practiced my elocution, I honed my makeup skills, I walked with stacks of books on my head, I read about world affairs. I gave it my all, and my hard work paid off."
"I came home with the title! The satisfaction of winning that crown was so much sweeter because of the loss that came prior," she added.

Zeenat Aman congratulated Neetu Kapoor for winning the hamper

Zeenat graced the couch of a talk show with Neetu Kapoor and towards the end of the post, she congratulated the actress for winning the hamper. "Neetu, congratulations, you are such a blast and I absolutely loved being on the koffee couch with you! But watch out, next time the win is mine."
