MUMBAI: Miss World commitments are keeping Manushi Chillar busy but the pageant winner says she has not shut the doors to Bollywood.
Chillar was crowned Miss World in China last year. The title was last won by Priyanka Chopra for India in 2000, a year after Yukta Mookhey. Both of them soon made their entry into Bollywood.
“I sense an actor in me. Being a doctor and an actor is very similar. My father would always tell me, to be a good doctor you have to be a good actor because fifty per cent of the patients are cured by the way you make them feel,” Chillar said.
“You do have role playing to do when you’re a doctor. Even as a Miss World you have to role play sometimes, when you look at some people you feel like breaking down but you’ve to smile and spread happiness. So of course I know I am a good actor,” she added.
When asked how many film offers she has refused so far, Chillar said: “I haven’t said no to any opportunity. It’s more of a wait. I need to fulfil certain responsibilities right now. I’ll take the Bollywood decision when it’s the right time.”
