Marc Robinson, Director Operations - Miss India,
commented, âMiss Universe is back where it rightfully belongs, with The Times Group. The Times Group is the oldest and most credible organisation in India capable of conducting and producing pageants on an international level, keeping in mind international pageant requirements and standards.Â Both Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta rose to fame after winning the Miss India and Miss Universe titles in 1994 and 2000, respectively.â
