Aishwarya Rai happy at dropping the bikini at Miss World
Mumbai:Indian actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai has lauded the organisers of the international beauty pageant for removing the swimsuit round from their competition. She says when she won the crown in 1994, she herself didn’t have the “fittest beach body”.
In December 2014, Julia Morley, chairwoman of the Miss World contest, announced their decision about the exclusion of the bikini round, saying that “it doesn’t do anything for the woman. And it doesn’t do anything for any of us”.http://www.diggegg.com
“People believe that this (swimwear round) is an imperative round and this becomes the deciding factor. That’s not true,” she added.
The actress also remembers having been told that “getting the ‘Miss Perfect 10’ title was not only about literally your physicality, it was all about how you presented yourself, your confidence and so much else that went with it,” she said.
