Manushi Chhillar replaces Kareena as jewellery brand ambassador


Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar replaced Kareena Kapoor Khan as the brand ambassador of a renowned jewellery brand.

On being asked about being compared with the ‘Jab We Met’ actress, Manushi said, "There are a lot of expectations when people have already seen actors like Tamannaah Bhatia and Kareena Kapoor Khan. But I think for a girl who is already living up to a lot of expectations, I wasn't really scared. There was more of excitement than nervousness."

At an event in Mumbai on Thursday, Manushi added, "What Kareena Kapoor Khan has been doing and will keep doing is different than the line of jewellery that I am endorsing."

On her journey as Miss World, Manushi said, "I just hope that this journey keeps going forward. I have just completed one year since my audition for Miss World and in this one year, my life has changed completely. And the whole world has seen that."

"So, I know that a lot of change is going to come and I am definitely not going to stop here. I am looking forward to it and with this campaign, we are going to touch lot of young lives and lot of women," said Manushi.

About the importance of education, especially for young girls, Manushi said, "For someone like me who is still studying and didn't come from a pageant background, knows and understands how education is important. Education brings a sense of confidence and self-worth to yourself."
