We are all proud of Manushi Chhillar, who won the coveted Miss World 2017 crown at a grand event in China, bringing to an end the country's dry spell of 17 years at the top pageant contest.
During the 'Dances Of The World' round when contestants had to dance and display their country's culture, our Manushi danced to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela's song Nagada Sang Dhol which featured Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
A trained Indian classical dancer, Chhillar has a passion for outdoor sports and actively participates in paragliding, bungee jumping, snorkelling and scuba diving besides sketching and painting.
The 20-year-old from Haryana, who is a medical student, edged out top five contestants from England, France, Kenya and Mexico.
Chhillar was presented the crown by Stephanie Del Valle, the last year's Miss World winner from Puerto Rico at the event in Sanya City Arena in China which was televised live globally.
The first and the second runners-up were Miss England Stephanie Hill and Miss Mexico Andrea Meza.
In the top five round, Chhillar was asked which profession according to her deserved the highest salary.
"I think a mother deserves the highest respect and when you talk about salary it's not always about cash but I feel it's the love and respect that you give to someone. My mother has always been the biggest inspiration in my life.
"All mothers sacrifice so much for their kids. So, I think it is the job of a mother that deserves the highest salary," Chhillar said to a wide-applause.
