The Answer that made Manushi Chhillar WIN Miss World 2017 pageant

 

India's Manushi Chhillar on Saturday won the coveted 'Miss World 2017' title at a glittering event here, ending 17 years of drought for India at the international pageant.

 

Manushi is the sixth Indian to win the title and the first since Priyanka Chopra won the crown in 2000.

 

"The feeling is still sinking in and I am very excited to make India proud too. I'm also looking forward to the year ahead," Manushi said in a statement after the win.

 

Manushi, 20, was born to doctor parents in Haryana, which once ranked the worst among all states in sex ratio in India.

 

"My parents have always been my pillar of support and having them here tonight by my side has only brought me more strength and joy."

 

In the question-and-answer round after she was shortlisted among the top five, Manushi was asked: "Which profession deserves the highest salary and why?"

 

She said a mother deserves it most. Watch the video here:

 

 

"My final answer also came to me by having them here with me in front of me," said Manushi, whose family members, including a brother and a sister, were present at the gala.

 

Apart from the main title, Manushi also won the 'Beauty with Purpose' award. Miss Mexico Andrea Meza was announced the first runner up, while Miss England Stephanie Hill was declared the second runner up at the event, held at Sanya City Area.

 

Soon after her win, congratulatory messages poured in on twitter.

 

 

Manushi Chhillar also took a moment to thank everyone for all the love and support.

 

 

The coveted title was last won by Priyanka Chopra for India in 2000, a year after Yukta Mookhey had made the country proud. In 1997, Diana Hayden had bagged the Miss World title, while Aishwarya Rai had the honours in 1994. Reita Faria was the first Indian to win the Miss World crown in the 1966.
