Manushi Chhillar is asked: "Which profession deserves the highest salary and why?" "I think a mother deserves the highest respect and when you talk about salary it's not always about cash but I feel it's the love and respect that you give to someone".

It's been 17 years since the country has won the title, according to the Miss India twitter account, and the sixth time an Indian woman has been crowned the victor. "The mother should get the highest respect". Manushi is the 6th Indian to have won the coveted crown. But on 18th November 2017, Manushi Chillar was crowned to be the 6th Miss World from India and the first after Priyanka Chopra's 2000 win.

Chhillar was handed the crown by last year's victor, Stephanie del Valle of Puerto Rico, at the ceremony in the Chinese coastal city of Sanya on Saturday night.
