After Manushi Chillar won the coveted Miss World crown back for India, the country was waiting with bated breath for another pageant on Sunday.
It was the grand evening of Miss Universe 2017 event and the entire nation had its hopes pinned on Indian model and winner of Yamaha Fascino Miss Diva 2017 Shraddha Shashidhar.
