Mumbai: Anukreethy Vas from Tamil Nadu was titled the 55th Femina Miss India World 2018. Meenakshi Chaudhary from Haryana was announced the first runner-up while the second was Shreya Rao from Andhra Pradesh.

Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar crowned her successor Anukreethy at the star-studded grand finale on Tuesday night in Mumbai at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Indoor Stadium.

Manushi carries the crown of Miss World 2017 that she won last year, after Priyanka Chopra won in 2000.

Nineteen-year-old Anukreethy is a student of Chennai's Loyola College, pursuing BA in French to become an interpreter. Raised by a single mother, the just-crowned Miss India World 2018 wishes to become a supermodel as she loves facing the camera.
