Miss World 2017 gives graceful reply to Tharoor's `chillar` remark.

Summary: New Delhi [India], Nov 20 (ANI): 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.

New Delhi [India], Nov 20 ( ANI ): 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.

Following Manushi Chhillar's victory at the Miss World 2017 pageant on Saturday, 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!"

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!." ( ANI )
