Miss India Manushi Chillar from Haryana has become the sixth Indian to be crowned Miss World. The 20-year-old will bring the crown back to India after 17 years. The last Indian to bag the title was Priyanka Chopra, who wore the crown in 2000.
While Manushi was crowned Miss World, Miss Mixico was the first Runner’s Up and Miss England was the Second Runner’s Up.
Manushi took over from Priyadarshini Chatterjee to become the 54th Miss India World, and floored the judges to bag the Miss World title. The medical student couldn’t believe herself when her name was announced and reacted with extreme joy. Her family, who were in the audience, couldn’t hold back their excitement as well.
Manushi, who won both the Head to Head challenge and the Beauty with a purpose segment of the Miss World competition, impressed the judges with her final answer as well. When asked, which profession in the world deserves the highest salary and why, she replied saying, “My mother has been my biggest inspiration, so I have to say, a mother’s job. It is not always about cash, but love and respect as well. A mother deserves that the most.”
