Screengrabs from the video featuring Manushi Chhilar and Sushmita Sen on Instagram.
Mumbai: Manushi Chhillar has been in the news almost every day since her historic Miss World victory in China on November 18.
From her brilliant answer to the question, ‘Which profession deserves the maximum salary’, recent return to India, visit to Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai, the media has been following every footstep of hers.
Be it her appearance at the Ivanka Trump starrer Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Hyderabad, her interaction with cricket captain Virat Kohli at an awards event, expressing interest to work with Aamir Khan or Shashi Tharoor's controversial tweet wishing her, Manushi has been all over.
But before all this attention, Manushi got attention from a very special person, another global beauty pageant winner.
A video of Sushmita Sen, the first Indian to win Miss Universe title, motivating Manushi when they met on a flight in September has gone viral.
In the video, the actress is seen asking Manushi her age, before telling her, "Give it your best shot and then leave the rest in God’s hands. All the best."
The actress is all smiles as she holds Manushi's hands throughout the conversation before kissing them at the end.
Watch the video here:
Manushi didn’t forget this interaction while conveying birthday wishes to Sushmita, next day after her victory.
No doubt this heartwarming chat would've played a small part in boosting Manushi's morale before she made the country proud with her win.
