Indian representation is currently dominating globally with India coming across as a powerhouse in every major event. With Priyanka Chopra taking longer strides than ever in Hollywood, moreover, globally, there lies a space in Bollywood ready to be filled by a young woman who has the power to hold her audience by not just her acting skills but also eloquence and articulateness. There are quite a few contenders for the space.
But Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar can possibly be a worthy successor of Miss World 2000 Priyanka Chopra when it comes to Bollywood. Manushi Chhillar’s filmy journey may not have been the dream debut that she was expecting. But despite the massive failure of ‘Samrat Prithviraj’, Manushi Chhillar’s performance was praised.
While Manushi Chhillar still has a lot to achieve and has a long way to go in her career, her strong line-up, her higher education of a medico, and her global triumph at the Miss World stage already set her apart from her contemporaries.
Here are a few reasons why we feel Manushi Chhillar might be the successor of Priyanka Chopra and why one should look out for her in the years to come:
Miss World Sisterhood
Miss World is a woman who has the power to influence people, has compassion for others, and creates an impact on today’s youth. For several years, Priyanka Chopra has done the same and continues to do further. Similarly, Manushi started her journey as Miss World in 2017 and since then she has been taking steps to action that support her advocacy. Miss World's sisterhood makes them one-of-a-kind women, and we have always seen an Indian queen as a pageant winner create a legacy of her own in the world of cinema.
Both Priyanka and Manushi got their head start in the world of entertainment after winning the Miss World pageant. Both have put India on the map and have made us proud. Soon after, Priyanka made her debut in films and has been unstoppable since then. While Chhillar has just started, she is certainly full of potential and it will be exciting to see where she heads next.
Potential As An Actor
Over the years, we have seen Priyanka get better with every film she did and today, she stands tall as one of the most skilled actresses in the world. With Manushi embodying the same determination as hers, it will be quite a ride to see her upcoming line of work. It's imperative to note that Manushi has some of the strongest lineups in her kitty and that is a win in itself for a newcomer who is still navigating her way in the industry. However, Manushi Chhillar’s elegance makes her compatible with every actor that she has been paired so far. Be it Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Varun Tej and more.
Beauty With Brains
Manushi Chhillar is a beauty with brains. We are aware how articulate, intelligent, and smart-spoken she is. Give her a mic, and she knows how to talk!! That's one thing Priyanka Chopra has mastered since the time of her big pageantry win and that is something that draws her audience closer to her.
One of the reasons why today’s youth resonates with Priyanka Chopra is her hold on social activities and her consistently working towards her advocacy. Today, Manushi, just like Miss World 2000 is one of the few actresses who looks out for the underprivileged with compassion, empathy, and kindness. Remembering the times when Priyanka was making a space as a young actress, not many actors of her generation spoke their minds and supported causes. Similarly, Manushi too stands solely amongst her contemporaries looking out for the deprived with her charity and social work.
