Vasuki Sunkavalli Out Of Miss Universe Race:
India's dry run at the Miss Universe contest continued as Vasuki Sunkavalli failed to make it to the final 16 at the Miss Universe 2011 contest here.
Earlier, the 27-year-old was disappointed as she could not pose in her national costume because it was not delivered on time.
It was model-turned actress Lara Dutta who had won the crown for India in that year.
After a gap of nearly 11 years, Telugu beauty Vasuki Sunkavalli from Andhra Pradesh was crowned Miss India Universe 2011 and represented India at the Miss Universe contest in Brazil.
The last time that Andhra Pradesh got into the record books of beauty pageants was in the year 2000, when Hyderabad- born Dia Mirza, now a Bollywood actress, won the Miss Asia Pacific title, apart from being a runner up in the Femina Miss India contest.
Of course, in 1997, another Hyderabadi damsel Diana Hayden bagged the prestigious Miss World title.
