Manushi Chillar: “I Enjoy Being In Front Of The Camera”

Every beauty pageant winner finds her next move to Bollywood, so will Miss World 2017 Manushi Chillar, who is going to give away her Miss India title to her successor on Tuesday night and the Miss World crown later this year, do the same? She says though she has discovered her love for the camera of late, her Bollywood decision is something she would like to leave for the time being.

“I still have six months to go as Miss World. I haven’t completed my college and I am also learning something everyday. This industry was something I have never seen and I don’t know anything about it. I was not even a person who watched a lot of movies. So for me, it has been a learning experience,” Manushi told IANS on phone from Mumbai when asked about her plans for Bollywood now that she is going to hand over the crown.

“I do enjoy being in front of the camera and that is something new I have discovered. With all these changes that are happening in my life, I try to take things as they come. When such a situation (Bollywood offers) will come when I have to make a choice, I will know a definite answer,” added the 21-year-old.

While she was still pursuing her course in medicine in an all-girls medical college in Haryana’s Sonipat district, Manushi was crowed Miss World 2017 at a glittering ceremony in the seaside resort city of Sanya in China.

Manushi, whose family belongs to Haryana and lives in the capital, is going to perform at a glittering ceremony on Tuesday when her successor will be chosen at the Miss India contest. From Bollywood, stars like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Madhuri Dixit Nene will add glamour to the show with their performances.

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana and filmmaker Karan Johar will host the beauty pageant’s finale, while Manushi along with Irrfan Pathan, K.L. Rahul, Kunal Kapoor and Malaika Arora will be the judges.

On her expectations from the contestants, Manushi said: “I think there is no set formula and there is no one path that can be taken to the crown as every one has their own way. Even when you look at past winners of Miss World, everyone was unique. So you can’t give a set example but all I can tell them is to learn as much as they can and be themselves.”

Manushi says the only advice she wants to give to the contestants is “to be able to present whoever they are in the best way possible at an international platform”.

“We do have a lot of expectations from India. It’s going to be a tough one for whosoever wins,” she said.

A gifted poet, painter and Kuchipudi dancer, Manushi wants to be a cardiac surgeon and has been associated with a project for menstrual hygiene among women.

Talking about how she plans to take that ahead after her Miss World commitments get over, she said: “I was largely doing that when I was in college… I am taking the initiative ahead to Kenya and South Africa. It’s not something that we are spreading across the country but around the globe. Even if I pass on the Miss World crown, I know I will still be associating with it.

“Globally also, the Miss World team loved the idea and that is why they are associated with so many continents who are willing to start similar initiatives in their country. It is going to go on.”

Madhuri Dixit’s debut Marathi film Bucket List seems to have impressed the audience with its light-hearted content and amazing narrative style.

It is jointly produced by DAR Motion Pictures, Dark Horse Cinemas and Blue Mustang Creations. The actress gave the details about the plot to Indian Express and said, She told Indian Express, “Bucket List is a content-driven film. My character, Madhura Sane, is a housewife who decides that she needs to take control of her life and in the process rediscovers herself. This is the life of every married woman, and not just in India. Women lose themselves somewhere when they get married. Family, kids, husband, in-laws and parents take priority over everything else. We forget to think about ourselves. Madhura is one such woman.” (Also Read: Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Madhuri Dixit wore some stunning ensembles this week and landed in our best-dressed category)

Talking about her character, Madhuri Dixit said in a recent interview,”In my film, the character does not have any larger than life wishes to fulfil because the idea is we can find the joy of life in the small things. We women tend to lose ourselves in family life. The fact is, if you keep the spark of life alive, relationships around you will also be more in harmony.” Anyway, have guys liked Madhuri Dixit’s Bucket List?

Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Madhuri Dixit wore some stunning ensembles this week and landed in our best-dressed category

George Clinton once said, “Style is whatever you want to do, if you can do it with confidence.” And Bollywood fashionistas like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka Chopra abide by that saying all the time. The ladies managed to impress the fashion pundits last week with their impeccable style statements. Just goes to say that stunners like Bebo and PC prefer making trends rather than following them. Joining the pretty actresses in the best dressed category this week are celebs like Jacqueline Fernandez, Madhuri Dixit Nene . Let’s delve in deeper to see how they nailed their attires.

Madhuri Dixit Nene

Madhuri has been promoting her debut Marathi film, Bucket List and while she is at it, the actress has mostly been slipping into some pretty anarkalis. Our favourite was the Anita Dongre anarkali that she paired with jewelry from Lara Morakhia. It was so pleasant to the eyes, the entire look. Hoping to see more such style statements from her.

Kareena Kapoor Khan

Kareena Kapoor Khan keeps making us go WOW with her sartorial choices. She did that yet again when she slipped into a dress from Nigerian based label, Meena that she paired with gold Aquazurra sandals. Those ruffles might seem a bit awkward, but that lovely colour made up for it. And add to it the easy breezy makeup. She looked gorgeous, as always.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka was invited by her good friend Meghan Markle to her Royal Wedding with Prince Harry. We had high expectations from her and she lived up to them, not once, but twice as she attended the reception too. And it was her outfit that she picked for the latter that impressed us more. She wore a shimmery Dior gown for the reception, that she paired with a Lady Dior bag and Lorraine Schwartz earrings. What do we say? We were just staring at her pictures that day.

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam too has been promoting Veere Di Wedding and she has been experimenting a lot when it comes to her outfits and makeup. Sadly, none of them managed to get us talking, especially this House Of Kotwara suit. Her accessories included Amrapali jewelry and Fizzy Goblet jootis. Wavy hair and striking red lips finished out the look. Simple and nice. The pastel look was so summer friendly.

Jacqueline Fernandez

And since we are talking about pastels, we were a fan of what Jacqueline wore while promoting Race 3. The petal pink lehenga from the Bridal Couture Collection of JADE by Monica and Karishma was the perfect ensemble during the summers, especially in Mumbai. Light makeup, wavy tied up hair and those lovely earrings from Anmol finished her look.

Karisma Kapoor

Karisma inaugurated a store in Jaipur wearing a linen sari from The Linen Club. The sari and the sleeveless blouse was perfect considering how hot it is there. She looked lovely, no complains there.
