Manushi Chillar is not only the most beautiful women in the world but she also represents the face of a strong, independent, progressive woman. She has made our nation immensely proud by becoming the Miss World but we are even more proud of knowing her as a woman.
On one side, we see our nation being proud of a woman who has become the queen of the world and on the other side, we see people fiercely targeting a woman and that too, all for a film. Though it sounds ironical, it is the bitter truth.
Deepika Padukone has received death threats openly due to the ‘Padmavati’ controversy and it certainly shows the amount of intolerance that exists in our country.
When Manushi was asked about her take on the ‘Padmavati’ row, she gave an answer full of fire and respect. Though it is a very sensitive question seeing the magnitude of the issue, her reply deserves a huge applause. She said,
All Indian women have one thing in common… we don’t feel prosecuted for who we are and actually face our challenges head-on. And I think that’s what we need to do, we need to be confident about who we are.
She further added that it is our responsibility to make women feel confident in this not very women-friendly society,
We will face a lot of limitations and sometimes we do feel that it is not a very woman-friendly society but as individuals, we should just set an example and make women feel confident that you can do amazing things as well.
Very well said, Manushi.
