Is Miss World Manushi Chhillar dropping hints about Bollywood debut? – Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar is all set to give away her Miss India title to her successor on the night of June 19, and the Miss World crown later this year.
But like most beauty pageant winner in India, is Manushi thinking to scale her way to Bollywood?
Manushi said that she has discovered her love for the camera off late, but getting into Bollywood is something she would like to leave aside for the time being.
“I still have six months to go as Miss World. I haven’t completed my college and I am also learning something everyday. This industry was something I have never seen and I don’t know anything about it. I was not even a person who watched a lot of movies. So for me, it has been a learning experience,” she quoted as saying by IANS.
“I do enjoy being in front of the camera and that is something new I have discovered. With all these changes that are happening in my life, I try to take things as they come. When such a situation (Bollywood offers) will come when I have to make a choice, I will know a definite answer,” added the 21-year-old.
Life for Manushi has been an amazing journey so far. While she was still pursuing her course in medicine in a medical college in Haryana’s Sonipat district, Manushi was crowned Miss World 2017 at a glistening ceremony in the seaside resort city of Sanya in China.
Here’s to another medical student who represented her country at Miss World 2015. Her simple idea, to educate children who were unable to adapt to the normal curriculum through computers, has changed lives! Walking on the roads of New Zealand I could never imagine the kind of pressure students go through till I got to witness it.
This time now, however, Manushi will be on the other side of the stage. She, along with Irfan Pathan, KL Rahul, Kunal Kapoor and Malaika Arora Khan, will judge the beauty pageant’s finale.
Actor Ayushmann Khurrana and filmmaker Karan Johar are going to host the pageant’s finale.
On her expectations from the contestants, Manushi, as quoted by Hisdustan Times, said, “I think there is no set formula and there is no one path that can be taken to the crown as everyone has their own way. Even when you look at past winners of Miss World, everyone was unique. So you can’t give a set example but all I can tell them is to learn as much as they can and be themselves.”
However, Manushi also said that the only advice she wants to give to the contestants is “to be able to present whoever they are in the best way possible at an international platform”.
“We do have a lot of expectations from India. It’s going to be a tough one for whosoever wins,” she said.
And how does she plan to take the ‘menstrual hygiene among women’ project ahead after her Miss World commitments get over?
“I was largely doing that when I was in college. I am taking the initiative ahead to Kenya and South Africa. It’s not something that we are spreading across the country but around the globe. Even if I pass on the Miss World crown, I know I will still be associating with it. Globally also, the Miss World team loved the idea and that is why they are associated with so many continents who are willing to start similar initiatives in their country. It is going to go on.”
Manushi is not only a Miss World, but also a gifted poet, painter and Kuchipudi dancer, and wants to be a cardiac surgeon.
