Shashi Tharoor Stirs Controversy With His ‘Chhillar’ Tweet But Our Miss World Has The Last Word

Now, unless you chose to live under a rock since the past few days, the name Manushi Chhillar won’t sound unfamiliar to you. By now everyone knows about Manushi, a medical student from Haryana, who brought the coveted crown home after 17 long years. Before Manushi, it was ‘Quantico’ actress and desi girl Priyanka Chopra who won the Miss World crown in 2000.

Apart from her bewitching beauty and indomitable personality, it’s her sincere love for her mother that touched millions of hearts and that of the judges at the event. When asked which profession deserves highest salary and why, she said that a mother deserves the highest respect and salary in the world since they sacrifice so much for their kids.

And in the blink of an eye, people found their Miss World in Manushi Chhillar, while she shined wearing the blue crown. Soon, the wishes started pouring it from all parts of the country, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and celebrities like Sushmita Sen, Randeep Hooda, Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza too congratulating her for this achievement. While, everyone was wishing her in the plain old simple manner, Shashi Tharoor chose to take the ‘punny’ way, which backfired terribly in his case.

If you ever go inside a dark empty room and shout “Who is controversy’s favourite child?” The hollow room will shout back only one name – Shashi Tharoor. Not that he is the only one, but he definitely tops the list. Twitter would have honestly been a dull place, had it not been for some people who can stir up a storm with almost anything they say.

After hitting us with his heavily worded “Exasperating farrago of distortions…” tweet, Shashi Tharoor tried to use Manushi’s victory to take a dig at BJP and demonetisation.  He wrote, “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.” For those who didn’t get the connection between the two and why is this such a big deal, ‘chillar’ is a Hindi term which means loose change.  

As soon as he posted this, Twitter went berserk with people trolling him for using word play to make fun of her surname. This one tweet did not go down well with many people and the National Commission for Women (NCW) was one of them. In fact, NCW India even wrote about how they will summon Tharoor to commission for his “derogatory and degrading tweet on our pride Manushi Chhillar.”

Soon, Tharoor realised that his joke has backfired on him, so he tried to control the damage (that was already done) by apologizing for his punny remark. In fact, he asked people to chill, which only triggered the NCW chief.

Amidst all this debate and discussion, the person who is being talked about, Manushi Chhillar has now replied to Shashi Tharoor’s ‘Chhillar’ tweet. And her tweet will make you want to crown her Miss World again!

While Tharoor’s comment raised many eyebrows, Manushi got to hit the last nail with her epic response.
