Sushmita Sen won the Miss Universe title in 1994. The picture with Ricky Martin is from her first meeting with him, after she won the pageant. The Miss Universe 1994 pageant was held in Manila. There were rumours that Sushmita Sen and Ricky Martin were dating each other back then. It is said that Martin’s popular track Maria is also inspired by his brief fling with Sushmita Sen.
When Ricky Martin came out as a gay, Sushmita Sen told DNA, “All the time I have known him, I've been so proud of him. It takes tremendous courage to accept your own DNA. I knew he was gay. More power to him. It is a fantastic feeling to be able to love who you want to and that's a choice no one can make for you."
