Global star Priyanka Chopra on Saturday met her long-time friend actor Lara Dutta and celebrated the 21 years of friendship they both share, in London. Taking to her Instagram handle, PeeCee shared an adorable picture featuring herself with Lara and her daughter Saira. For the unversed, Priyanka and Lara have been friends for 21 years since meeting each other at Miss India 2000 pageant. Lara won the Miss India title and Miss Universe crown in 2000. Whereas, Priyanka was the first runner-up at Miss India but won the Miss World crown later in 2000. This created history as in the same year India won two big titles at the international pageant.

Saira you’re definitely your mums daughter. Adore you. So much love for these ladies. And so many memories. Also Missed you #Pradeepguha.”
