Not upset with Tharoor’s tongue-in-cheek remark: Manushi Chhillar

NEW DELHI: Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar today said she is not upset that Congress leader Shashi Tharoor referred to her as “chillar”, which means small change.

“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,” Manushi tweeted, and tagged Tharoor as well as Times Group Managing Director Vineet Jain.

Manushi, a medical student from Haryana, won the title in China, ending 16 years of drought for India at the international beauty pageant.

After her victory, Tharoor had tweeted: “What a mistake to demonetise our currency! BJP should have realised that Indian cash dominates the globe: look, even our Chhillar has become Miss World!“

This post didn’t go down too well with some social media users who pointed out there is a difference between Manushi’s surname “Chhillar” and the word “Chillar” - in spelling and meaning.

Later, Tharoor took to his social media pages and asked people to chill.
