Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar gives graceful reply to Tharoor’s ‘chillar’ remark

In response to Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s comment, wherein he tried to play on Manushi Chhillar’s surname, the newly-crowned Miss World 2017 has said she is not going to be upset over a tongue-in-cheek remark.

Tharoor’s witty tweet on Manushi backfired on him, when the twitterati slammed him for comparing her surname to ‘loose change’.

The 20-year-old, however, gave a graceful reply to Tharoor’s tweet.

“Exactly @vineetjaintimes agree with you on this. A girl who has just won the World isn’t going to be upset over a tongue-in-cheek remark. ‘Chillar’ talk is just small change – let’s not forget the ‘chill’ within Chhillar @ShashiTharoor,” she tweeted.

Vineet Jain, MD of Times Group, went on to say that Tharoor’s tweet was not offensive. “I saw @ShashiTharoor tweet regarding @ManushiChhillar. I wasn’t offended even though she is a times girl. We need to learn to be more TOLERANT towards light hearted HUMOUR,” he wrote.

Manushi was quick to agree with Jain, as she tweeted, “Exactly @vineetjaintimes agree with you on this.”

“You’re a class act, @ManushiChhillar! Beautiful, smart & uncommonly gracious too. Still, if any offence was caused to any member of your family, sincere apologies. Like every Indian, I’m proud of you.” wrote Shashi Tharoor on Manushi’s graceful reply

After receiving backlash, in another tweet, Tharoor issued an apology, saying, “Guess the pun IS the lowest form of humour, & the bilingual pun lower still! Apologies to the many who seem to have been righteously offended by a light-hearted tweet today. Certainly no offence was meant to a bright young girl whose answer i’ve separately praised. Please: Chill!.”
