Manushi Chhillar (born14 May 1997) is an Indian model and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss World 2017. She was previously crowned Femina Miss India 2017 on 25 June 2017. Chhillar is the sixth Indian woman to win Miss World and the first since Priyanka Chopra won Miss World 2000.

The announcement about Chhillar winning the Miss World crown was also made on the pageant’s official Twitter handle as well as on its Facebook page.
India’s Manushi Chhillar 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. The 20-year-old from Haryana, who is a medical student, edged out top five contestants from England, France, Kenya and Mexico.
“The winner of Miss World 2017 is Miss India Manushi Chhillar,” the tweet said. The first and the second runners-up were Miss England Stephanie Hill and Miss Mexico Andrea Meza.
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.
Now, many people are wondering what are the questions which decided the Miss World 2017 result and declared Haryana girl Manushi Chhillar as the winner.
– 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.
– Miss England Stephanie Hill was asked, “If you speak in front of all the leaders of the world, what would you speak about?”
