Manushi Chhillar who recently made the news after being crowned as Miss India World 2017 has now made the country proud by winning the title of ‘Miss World 2017’. The pageant had 118 participants from different countries and was held in Sanya, China this year.

I don’t think its just about cash but love and respect she gives to someone. She is the biggest inspiration in my life. Mother should get highest respect.”
