Manushi Chhillar: Know your Miss India World 2017
Even though she was studying to become a cardiac surgeon, destiny had other plans for Manushi Chillar, who is India’s Miss World contestant for 2017. The 20-year-old, who is the 54th titleholder, represented the state of Haryana at the Femina Miss India 2017 beauty pageant, and competed with 29 contestants from other Indian states. She took over as Miss India World from Priyadarshini Chatterjee at the finale event, which was held in Mumbai earlier this year. Now, Manushi is competing with 108 contestants for the Miss World crown at an event that will be held in China on November 18.
Manushi was enrolled in a bachelor’s degree in medicine and surgery when she decided to enter the beauty pageant. However, she is equally passionate about outdoor sports such as paragliding, bungee jumping, snorkelling and scuba diving. No surprise then that her motto in life is, ‘When you cease to dream you cease to live.
