We just can’t get enough of Miss World 2017, Manushi Chhillar. From the day she won the Miss World 2017 title and brought the glory back to India after a long gap of 17 years, Manushi Chhillar has been one of the hottest topics of discussion on social media.
She is very busy giving interviews and bytes to news channels because every journalist wants to interact with her and find something new or unknown about her life. Manushi opened up about her life till now and her future plans during the first session of Agenda Aaj Tak 2017, moderated by Rajdeep Sardesai, Consulting Editor for the India Today Group.\
Rajdeep Sardesai, who is one of the most popular journalists in India, asked Manushi Chhillar about her role models and this is what the Miss World 2017 said:
“Coming from a country like India I have a lot of role models. Dr Reita Faria is one of them. She completed her studies after winning the title of Miss World, and became a gynaecologist. I idolise Mother Teresa as well, especially of the work she did in Kolkata. I also follow Michelle Obama.”
Rajdeep Sardesai also asked Manushi about women in Haryana and how close she is to being a perfect Haryanvi woman. This is what Manushi Chhillar said:
“I think we Haryanvis are bull-headed. We don’t understand logic, we just see our goal and run towards it. We’ve seen the goal and just worked to achieve it. Haryanvi women have the same quality. We don’t think about the gender gap or anything. I don’t think I could stand next to such beautiful women on a world stage without the confidence I have today.”
But, the most interesting bit was when Rajdeep Sardesai asked her about her definition of ‘ideal man’. Manushi, who has impressed one and all with her smart replies, gave a very good reply to this question.
When asked about her ideal man and his looks, Manushi gave a prompt reply, “What will I do with looks? I am good-looking enough to balance it out.” Manushi said that is very important the guy has a good sense of humour. Humour and Brains are the two key aspects of her ideal man, and she is not bothered by looks.
Manushi also revealed her favourite picks in some categories in a typical rapid-fire with Rajdeep. Take a look:
Food: “Even the Miss India organisers knew that I can’t control my palate. I have a major sweet tooth. Rajma chawal by mamma, and kaju katlis are my favourites.”
Music: “I love to dance. Bollywood music or good old Punjabi pop.”
Cricketer: “Virat Kohli”
Actress: “Priyanka Chopra, because I admire her, and she has executed everything she’s done so well.”
Politician: “My favourite politician will always be the Prime Minister of India, no matter who holds the office. The country always comes first.”
