The gorgeous model and now an actress Manushi Chhillar is looking forward to her debut movie’s release this Diwali. The former Miss World, who won the crown 17 years after Priyanka Chopra last won it for India, is paired with Akshay Kumar for this YRF movie. Manushi calls herself fortunate as Prithviraj is a big Diwali release.
Prithviraj: Miss Universe Manushi Chhillar Draws Similarity Between Her Debut with Deepika Padukone’s
“Growing up, I remember going to the theatre to watch a movie during Diwali. It was evident to us that one of the biggest films of the year would be released on Diwali and were a community viewing exercise. Today, as my film has been slated as a Diwali release, I can only be grateful that I’m getting this launch by YRF,” says Manushi.
“I have given this debut my all and have worked consistently on myself, for over a year, to deliver this important and beautiful part. So, I’m quite eager for my film to do well and hopefully for people to love it,” she says.
Her situation of being a debut actor getting a big Diwali release is pretty much similar to Deepika Padukone’s. Incidentally, Deepika is also a model turned actor. Opining on the same, Manushi said, “When you say that I’m getting a Diwali debut similar to the debut Deepika Padukone got with Om Shanti Om, I can only consider myself fortunate. Deepika is someone many girls look up to and is an inspiration to many.”
She adds, “Honestly, I’m not over-burdening myself with the expectations. I want to enjoy the release of my first film and I want this process to be etched in my mind forever. So, I wish to cherish every step of the way.”
