New Delhi: A year before, Manushi Chhillar made the country proud when she was crowned in the coveted Miss World 2017 pageant. The stunning Manushi was ruled the internet as soon as she was crowned Miss World and brought the most important crown to the nation after a period of 17 years. Before Manushi, B-town actress Priyanka Chopra had grabbed the title back in the year 2000.
Worth mention here Manushi was crowned by outgoing titleholder Miss World 2016 Stephanie Del Valle from Puerto Rico. The young and stunning Manushi became the sixth Indian woman to be the victor of the prestigious crown.
