Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar Wants To Be Aamir Khan’s Leading Lady

Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar returned to a rousing welcome in India on Saturday evening. Addressing media for the first time today at Mumbai's St. Regis Hotel, the youngster was brimming with confidence.

She was recently in news when politician Shashi Tharoor apologised to her for making a nasty comment on her. When asked about the episode here’s what she said:

“Everyone is entitled to an opinion, if 2 out of 100 people say wrong things about me, there are 98 others who say good things. I’ll focus on the positive side of it.”

Manushi, who will be travelling the world for a year, with 6 other beauty queens, spreading awareness about menstrual hygiene, harbours Bollywood dreams. Speaking about it she said:



“I want to work in an Aamir Khan film. He always essays roles that are challenging and his films have a social message. For the first week in China, all other contestants in the pageant thought that I was a Bollywood actor.”

The beautiful lady was also asked about threats that Deepika Padukone, also a former model and international star, has been facing with regards to her upcoming film Padmavati. She said:

“One thing we Indian women have in common is that we don’t feel persecuted for who we are, we take our challenges head-on. We need to be confident of who we are, despite the limitations we face.”


Manushi studied St. Thomas' School in New Delhi, and was pursuing a medical degree at the Bhagat Phool Singh Government Medical College for Women in Sonipat. However she had to leave her studies midway to pursue her dreams. But Manushi intends to get back to her books, “I took a year’s break from academics when I completed Miss India, but now I will complete my studies,” she signed off.
