Manushi Chhillar is on cloud nine and she has all the valid reason to be, after all she is the Miss World 2017. Ms Chhillar brought back the crown of Miss World after 17 years and made us immensely proud. Ever since her big win, everyone is talking about her. In fact she was grandly welcomed at the Mumbai airport at midnight too.
A lot of people have been asking me about my engagement. I am supposed to be engaged with someone, so actually I have been dying that someone should ask me about my engagement, because it’s even in Wikipedia page and it’s quite funny because I don’t even know who this person is, but I wish people would have asked me about it.
My first press conference in #India post the @missworld pageant was so much fun. Got a chance to interact with numerous media houses at @stregismumbai. Thank you @taruntahiliani for this beautiful outfit.

So finally, she cleared the air and answered, “Do I look engaged? I am 20 year old”. Later she sarcastically said, “I actually want to meet this fiancée because he has made my parents life much easier”. Well, Miss Chhillar was in a chill mood to respond to all our queries.

Talking about turning her dreams into reality, she said, “It has been the most incredible journey, I just cannot explain that feeling when I was crowned as Miss World. It was beautiful and I felt like whatever I was dreaming was actually falling in place”.
Manushi is a medical student, no medical student have this dream of becoming Miss World, but she had, “ I was studying medicine, but I also knew that I wanted to be Miss India and Miss World, but I never knew that it will unfold like this. Becoming a doctor and Miss World is my dream come true.”
I can't wait for this. I'll see you there folks!!! EXCITED! #Repost @missindiaorg (@get_repost) ・・・ India is invited to celebrate @manushi_chhillar's win at @missworld 2017. Let's come together to celebrate India's victory after 17 long years! We are proud of you Manushi! Welcome home. #IndiaWelcomesMissWorld
We asked Manushi what made her take this up, she explains, “ While growing up I saw a lot of incidents, I felt very bad to see poor menstrual hygiene , and I as a female, instantly got connected with it.
I have visited many rural areas where I felt extremely bad to see the lack of awareness on not using sanitary pads during their menstruation, because it’s not available in shops or they feel ashamed to buy it. I was blessed to have a family like this and get all the facility, so I thought someone should be there to help them and I took over the responsibility.”
Dearest @stephdvd ❤️ You have been one of the most genuine, honest, positive and beautiful people I have met. Your energy never fails to resonate throughout the room. It has been such a delight to have a Miss World like you! I hope I am able to live up to that! Thank you for being right from @missindiaorg to @missworld ❤️❤️
We also asked her about Akshay Kumar’s Padman which is a real story of a man who started the awareness on the usage of sanitary napkins. She was delighted to see that even Bollywood is taking an initiative to create awareness,
“I am really happy that Bollywood is taking an effort in the direction on the hygiene bit, because entertainment does play a very important role. Bollywood is a huge industry and lot of people watch it, so it is a very good medium to reach out.”
It’s good be opinionated, but more importantly informed to have that opinion. I really want to say that they should read, watch to know what Miss World actually stands for and then make an opinion about it.”
Talking about her favourite person in Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra, she said, “Long time ago, I wanted to become Miss World, but much later I got to know that she is Miss World. I have always admired her as a person and I like the fact that she is unapologetically herself.”
Manushi is not sure of making a career in Bollywood just yet, but she loves Aamir Khan Films, “I really like Aamir Khan movies, they are entertaining and at the same time you get to do different kind of roles.”
