Manushi Chillar, who turns a year older, reflects on her life and the world around her

Manushi Chhillar, who has turned 23 today (Thursday), is celebrating her birthday in lockdown. After winning Miss World pageant in 2017, the pretty girl is gearing up for her debut in Yash Raj Films’ Prithviraj starring Akshay Kumar. “I have had a blessed life and I thank the universe for everything. I have nothing but gratitude for the exposure that I have had so far and I’m proud that I have been able to express myself completely along the way. My journey has just begun and I’m extremely excited to see how my life and career shapes up,” says Manushi.

She adds, “It is a reflective birthday for me. All that I thought I knew about the world has changed and I have had time to think about this a lot and discuss it with my family and friends. So, it’s going to be a very quiet birthday, as celebrations is the last thing on my mind right now, given the pain, loss and suffering I have been witnessing.”

Manushi realises that media and entertainment industry has been hit hard but she is confident that Bollywood will bounce back. She is confident that people would want to come back to the theatres and celebrate such moments with their families. “I think all the thinkers and visionaries of Bollywood will go into a huddle, making plans to script the industry’s comeback as and when it’s feasible. We live in an intimate country, a country that likes to celebrate with everyone, so we will all go back to watching movies in theatres in due course of time,” she says.

Manushi adds, “We will go back to living our lives for sure but I hope we will all value our freedom, our country, our nature that much more. As of now, we will just need to wait and hope for things to first become better for all the countrymen, economy to bounce back, everyone being safe, healthy and back to work.”
