A medical student from Haryana, Manushi Chhillar, is the new Miss World 2017. Elbowing aside beauties from over 108 nations, Manushi was crowned the new queen in the Sanya City Arena in China PR. Miss World 2016 winner Puerto Rico’s Stephanie Del Valle passed on the coveted crown to the new titleholder, Manushi Chhillar from India.
No Asian woman had won the Miss World title until 1966, when a final year medical student Reita Faria, changed India’s fate forever draped in six yards of elegance. Close to three decades later, light-eyed beauty Aishwarya Rai had re-written history after she beat everyone in the competition to bag the honour for the country.
The gorgeous 20-year old has also won the Head to Head Challenge and the Beauty with a Purpose titles earlier.
