Manushi Chhillar, who won a Miss World Crown for India, turns 25 today. She won the title on November 18, 2017, 17 years after Priyanka Chopra won the crown in 2000. 

Born on May 14, 1997, in Haryana, Manushi was born into a family of doctors. In 2015, she took admission in Bhagat Phool Singh Women’s Medical College in Haryana. She wanted to be a doctor, but also dreamt of participating in a beauty pageant. 

Her life changed when she found out about Miss India auditions. Juggling between studies and Miss India preparations wasn’t easy. In 2017, she won the Femina Miss India title. She then took a year off from college to finish her Miss World duties. After winning the Miss World crown, she started a campaign named ‘Project Shakti’, aimed at educating women about the importance of menstrual hygiene. 

Winning the crown made way for Bollywood offers, of course. Manushi Chhillar will make her debut with the movie ‘Prithviraj’ that stars Akshay Kumar in the lead role. The movie is slated to release on June 3.
