Our paths may change as life goes along but our bond as sisters will remain ever strong. When you have a sister, you don’t need anyone else by your side, she will protect you like a father, guide you like a mother and will irritate you like a brother. If you have a sister, you don’t have to worry about anything in life. Sisters don’t need a daily conversation to be aware of what is happening in each other’s lives, a mere look at your face will clear everything to her and she will be there with you. When you achieve something in life, your sister is the happiest person and will never get tired of praising you.
It was in 2017 when the entire nation was glued to their television screens and was praying for India’s victory. No, it was not a cricket world cup final but it was the biggest beauty pageant, Miss World. A then 20-year-old medical student, Manushi Chhillar was representing India at the global level. She was always focused on her studies and wanted to be a doctor but deep down always had a dream to be at a beauty pageant at least once in her life. And not only did she take a part in the pageant, but she also made India proud as she was crowned ‘Miss World 2017’.
Belonging to a family of doctors, Manushi Chhillar is very close to her family and gives credit for her success to her parents and siblings. Manushi has two siblings, a younger brother, and a sister. In October 2019, it was a happy moment for the entire Chhillar family when Manushi’s sister, Dewangana Chhillar tied the knot. Manushi had made all the heads turn with her perfect ethnic wear at her sister’s wedding. She had looked ethereal and was a perfect 'maid of honor' for her sister, Dewangana.
Take a look at the stunning Manushi:
Manushi took to her Instagram handle and has shared stunning pictures from her sister’s wedding and has captioned them as “This time I’ll be watching from the shadows to protect what’s mine.” Followed by a heart emoji. Manushi’s sister, Dewangana Chhillar looked stunning in her pink and orange-colored lehenga with a heavy sequenced golden blouse. She has complemented her final look by opting for pink and green-colored jewelry. On the other hand, Manushi has opted for a gorgeous blue-colored lehenga and pink dupatta. She has kept her look and jewelry minimum. To complete her final look, she opted for simple diamond jewelry. Chhillar sisters opted for a designer JADE ensemble and made the heads turn.
Born in Rohtak town Miss World 2017, Manushi Chhillar is very close to her family. Manushi Chhillar gives credit to her mother, Dr Neelam Chhillar for being the most influential person in her life. In an interview post her historic win (as the win came 17 years after Priyanka Chopra had won the Miss World crown in the year 2000) Manushi had said that her mother had supported her throughout her journey. She had stated, “Her infinite love, passion, courage, and determination to achieve her goals always keeps me going. Her gentle heart yet bold personality inspires me to be compassionate and ambitious."
Juggling between medical studies and workout sessions, Manushi Chhillar’s preparation for the pageant was not an easy task for her. She would wake up early in the morning for her work out and then used to attend her classes and then again work out after classes, and study till late at night. Manushi is the first one from her family to have entered the glamour world. She had once revealed, “I come from a family where people believe in education and they don't really step out into any big entertainment-related industry or beauty pageants. I am the first one from my family and friends to step into the world.”
Manushi Chhillar was the most beautiful maid of honour at her sister's wedding. What do you think?
