Talking about the combination of beauty, brains and a good heart, Aishwarya’s won the titled because of her final answer. Aishwarya was asked what all qualities she saw in a Miss World. She answered: “The Miss Worlds that we have had up to date, have been proof enough that they have had compassion. Compassion for the underprivileged and not only for the people who have status and stature. We have had people, who can look beyond the barriers that man has set up – of nationalities and colour. We have to look beyond those and that would make a true Miss World. A true person, a real person.”
