Former Miss World Manushi Chillar celebrates a quiet birthday amidst lockdown
It will be indeed a birthday to remember for former Miss World and actor Manushi Chillar. This ethereal beauty turns 23 today and is celebrating the day with her family at home due to lockdown.
"I’m excited to see how my life and career shape up,’ says the star-in-making, who's gearing up for her debut in Akshay Kumar-starrer Prithviraj.
The gorgeous girl has had a stellar rise to fame as she won Miss World in 2017 and brought the coveted crown back to India 17 years after Priyanka Chopra bagged it! Now, she is gearing up for her debut in Prithviraj produced by Yash Raj Films.
“I have had a blessed life and I thank the universe for everything. I have nothing but gratitude for the exposures that I have had so far and I’m proud that I have been able to express myself completely along the way. My journey has just begun,” says Manushi.
She adds, “It is a reflective birthday for me. All that I thought I knew about the world has changed and I have had time to think about this a lot and discuss it with my family and friends. So, it’s a very quiet birthday for me as celebrations are the last thing on my mind right now given the pain, loss and suffering I have been witnessing”.
Manushi realises that the media and entertainment industry has been hit hard but she is confident that Bollywood will bounce back. She is confident that people would want to come back to the theatres and celebrate such moments with their families.
“I think all of Bollywood will huddle in making plans to script the industry’s comeback as and when it’s feasible. We live in an intimate country that likes to celebrate with everyone, so, we will all go back to watching movies in theatres in due course of time,” she says.
But Manushi also adds, “I hope we will all value our freedom, our country, our nature that much more. As of now, we will just need to wait and hope for things to first become better for all the countrymen, economy to bounce back”.
