2001 was a year full of expectations from India since she had participated in Miss Universe a year after Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza made India proud by bagging all three major wins, Miss Universe 2000, Miss World 2000 and Miss Asia Pacific International 2000 respectively.

Celina was launched with fanfare in the Indian film industry by Feroz Khan opposite Fardeen Khan in Janasheen 2003. She went on to star in the hit No Entry. She also featured in films like Zinda, Thank You, Golmaal Returns. She, however, has not been seen in any film since 2012. She sure is an epitome of stunning beauty and grace and has made her country proud.
