  • Miss world 2017: Manushi Chhillar from Haryana, India won the title after 17 years

Miss England and Miss Mexico, Stephanie Hil and Andrea Meza were the first and second runner-up respectively.

There were joyous celebrations at the home of her parental uncle, Dr Dinesh Chillar, a government doctor in Haryana, and Dr Usha Chillar, an associate professor in Dermatology in Manushi's medical college. About 17 years after Priyanka Chopra won the Miss World title, Manushi Chhillar created an nearly déjà vu moment when she sat on the chair to be crowned the Miss World 2017.

The last time India won the title was 17 years ago when Priyanka Chopra won the title in 2000.

Manushi Chillar is a 20 years old trained Kuchipudi dancer trained under legendary dancers Kaushalya Reddy and Raja and Radha Reddy.

Manushi did her schooling from Bengaluru and Delhi. Manushi was also a part of the National School of Drama.
