However, she is not the first Indian to be presenting at the prestigious Academy Awards. There have only been two Indians who have presented at the Oscars before this.
In 1980, Persis Khambatta became the first Indian to be chosen for the honour. Khambatta was an actor and model best remembered for playing Lieutenant Ilia in 1979’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture. In 1980, she went up onstage at the Oscars ceremony to hand out the award for Best Feature-Length Documentary Film.
Priyanka Chopra, who presented at the Oscars, was the second one to do so. In 2016, Chopra presented the nominees for Achievement in Film Editing. She was accompanied onstage by American actor and director Liev Schreiber.
