Israeli star Gal Gadot has become the new sensation with her recent worldwide release, ‘Wonder Woman’. The movie has emerged as the biggest opening ever for a movie directed by a woman. The movie has soared to an unexpected box-office debut in Indian theaters, too.
However, there is a striking fact about the star which is unknown to most of us. We know that previously, the actress starred in ‘The Fast And The Furious’ movies.
However, there is something more to the fact that her hard-earned stardom did not come easy. She started her journey not by starring in an unknown film, but by being one of the finalists in the 2004 Miss Universe pageant. Yeah, that’s true!
More interesting is the fact that she competed against the then Miss Universe winner, Tanushree Dutta. Unlike their careers now, Dutta upstaged Gadot at the event by finishing in the top 10. Gadot didn’t even qualify for the elimination rounds. And now, a decade later, Gadot is the star of a bonafide international blockbuster, while Dutta’s biggest hit came opposite Emraan Hashmi in 2005’s ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’.
This is what we call luck! The same comparisons are being made by Twitter users:
In 2004 Tanushree Dutta and Gal Gadot were competing with Each Other in Miss Universe on same platform. Look at Them Today !!
