Manushi, whose family belongs to Haryana and lives in New Delhi, is pursuing her MBBS degree from the Bhagat Phool Singh Government Medical College for Women in Khanpur Kalan village in Sonepat. She is the first Indian woman to bag the title after Priyanka Chopra won the pageant in 2000.

The 21-year-old beauty was crowed Miss World 2017 at a glittering ceremony in the seaside resort city of Sanya in China on Saturday evening. She went on to pick the "Miss Haryana" title in April this year followed by the coveted Femina Miss India title in June this year.

"Best wishes to Manushi Chhillar for winning the Miss World title".

The finalists were declared on their official Facebook and Twitter handles.
