Manushi went on to win the title of fbb Femina Miss India Haryana in April 2017. She represented the state of Haryana in annual Femina Miss India competition and was crowned Femina Miss India 2017 in the finale held on 25 June 2017, later going on to win the Miss World crown. (IANS)

Soha interacted with the media at a special screening of a Touch Of Care campaign by Vicks here on Wednesday. She was joined on stage by cricketer Gautam Gambhir and actress Shriya Saran.
“I always thought what it’s like to be a mother. When you become a mother, you respect your mother so much more.

She said the couple had even thought of adopting a child earlier.
“It’s not about biology. When I was thinking about having a child and wasn’t sure whether we would have a biological child and we were open to adoption… That time I spoke to a friend of mine and she said the question is not are you ready to be a mother or be pregnant or have a child.
