India’s pride Adline Castelino is back home after a successful stint at the Miss Universe 2020 competition in the United States where she emerged as the third runner-up. It has taken India 20 years since Lara Dutta won the title, to gain a position in the competition which saw 74 participants from across the globe.

The diva is now home and indulged in media interactions ever since. A question that every beauty queen encounters always has to do around their intensions of joining the Bollywood or the Indian Film industry. Adline also shared her intensions on joining the world of glamour and her recent plans as she said, “Absolutely yes! Looking forward to meaningful projects that I could contribute to, also at the moment I’m trying to learn more about logistics to be able to start up my agro business.”



Adline also answered to why she thinks she might not have the title, to which the queens told, “No reason to feel that way, every woman out there gave their best in the limited resources and challenges this year has placed.” She explained the feeling of being able to represent her country in inexplicable emotions and extended gratitude for the love and admiration people have showered unconditionally.

Adline’s journey to the international platform has been quite a ride. The queen was infected with the Covid-19 virus during the last leg of her preparations which made it very challenging mentally and physically not only for her but her team to arrange everything, “It feels like a miracle but we made it! It was truly meant to be!” she added.

Talking more about the experience at the highest beauty platform in the world Adline mentioned, “Every woman there had a unique journey, their projects and work in their societies truly inspired me the entire year to do more and be more. Meeting them in person increased my admiration for them and I’m glad to call them my friends now.”



Adline also shared a message for the next Miss Diva winner as the 70th edition of Miss Universe in getting closer, she said, “She has my support and guidance. The message that I would want to pass to her, something that our Miss Universe Lara Dutta told me, Give it your best, you can control what you do and not what happens.”

Adline has always admitted to being an adventurous person, open to trying every aspect of my personality in every opportunity that comes on the way. We hope to see the beauty on big screen soon and send her best wishes for her future endeavours.
