Mumbai, Jan 09: Bollywood actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai is happy for exclusion of the bikini round at the Miss World contest. She lauded the organisers of the international beauty pageant for their decision.
The actress said that even she was not the best beach body when she won the Miss World crown in 1994. She expressed that she was very happy to know the development at the beauty contest.
In December 2014, Julia Morley, chairwoman of the Miss World contest, had announced their decision about the removal of the swimsuit round from their competition saying, "It does not do anything for the woman and it does not do anything for any of us."
Talking about the decision, Aishwarya said, "When I became Miss Word, I was definitely not the best beach body of all the 87 contestants. I can vouch for it...I can put a stamp on it. And yet I won the title".
"People believe that this swimwear round is an imperative round and this becomes the deciding factor. That's not true," she added.
The actress, who was recently felicitated for being the most successful Miss World ever, also remembered 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.
