New Delhi: Though Bollywood is not on Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar’s wishlist, but she clearly has a name in her mind to collaborate with if she ever makes a foray into the film industry.
The 21-year-old beauty pageant winner revealed she wants to work with “perfectionist” Aamir Khan, if she ever made a decision to enter Bollywood.
“If I get an offer, I would like to work in an Aamir Khan movie. The kind of roles they do are very interesting and challenging as well. I think his movies connect to the people in a positive manner,” Manushi said, while addressing a press conference in New Delhi.
The newly-crowned Miss World hails from Haryana, quite infamous for controversial decisions by Khap Panchayats.
To this end, Manushi feels the recognition she has got would give a new ray of hope to the girls of her state.
“When people from your community do something good, it is very encouraging. Especially in a place like Haryana, where everyone presumes that women are looked down on upon, but now the map is changing. If you see the achievers of the state, most of them are women. I am really happy that women are looking at their women differently now. There was not much participation in beauty pageants from my state, but I think after this more girls will come up,” she said.
Chhillar’s win at the Miss World 2017 comes 17 years after Priyanka Chopra won the crown.
She was crowned by Miss World 2016 Puerto Rico’s Stephanie Del Valle at a glittering event held at Sanya City Arena in China on November 18.
