Manya Singh talks about her struggles
In 2020, Manya Singh became the talk of the town after becoming the runner-up of the Femina Miss India title. Her victory was even more special as she is the daughter of an auto-rickshaw driver. In Bigg Boss 16, Salman inquires about her life after winning the contest and Manya shares that despite winning the beauty title, work opportunities are few. “After winning the Miss India title, I got only one advertisement in two years. It has been a tough journey for me. My father still rides an auto-rickshaw,” Manya said calmly.
Manya Singh rejected for her black complexion
On the Bigg Boss 16 stage, Manya Singh shared that winning a competition is not enough to make it big in the industry. She said that her journey has been full of challenges but she will persevere. When Salman Khan asked why he was not getting more work, Manya said that it could be because of his dark complexion. “Most offers were not made because of my dark skin tone. People used to say that winning a pageant is not enough.”
Manya Singh did the catwalk with Salman Khan before entering the Bigg Boss 16 house. Later, amidst the applause of the audience, the Bollywood superstar took him to the house.
