Adline Castelino was crowned Miss Diva Universe 2020 on 22nd February 2020 in Mumbai as she became the official representative of India in Miss Universe 2020. The stunning diva says it’s a huge honour for her to represent the country at Miss Universe, a title she hopes to win.

21-year-old Adline feels grateful to those who helped and guided her throughout her journey. In a local interview after her win, Adline talked about her future stint as she stated, “This is a huge honour and responsibility of representing my incredible country at such a prestigious platform such as Miss Universe. It has been 20 years since India won, so the stakes are really high, but the passion is stronger. I am backed with a wonderful team and we share the same vision for our country.”

Adline’s preparations for Miss Universe are yet to start but the team will be going through all aspects by thinking out of the box. “This is about my country, there is a lot of research to do on the history and mystery and imbibe it in the vision. I have an amazing team sharing the same vision for India,” she added.

The 21-year-old model said winning Miss Diva Universe has made her realise that one should be prepared for anything and everything. The newly crowned queen grew up idolising Sushmita Sen Miss Universe 1994 and she says the Bollywood actor became an inspiration for her to chase her pageant dream.

She also spoke out her interests as she said, “I never anticipated the change this journey would have on me and my life. I’m glad I was able to embark on it, face every hurdle and grow through the obstacles. Staying independently and away from home for a long time prepared me for it. I was very fond of her positive nature and that is what I inculcated in me. I found it very brave and inspiring when she gave home to the both of her daughters without anyone’s support.”
