Not upset over Tharoor's tongue-in-cheek remark: Manushi Chhillar

The 20-year-old, she is the 54th titleholder, and served the state of Haryana at the Femina Miss India 2017 beauty pageant and raced with 29 contestants from other Indian states. Tharoor had tweeted out saying, "What a mistake to demonetise our currency!"

Haryana, infamous for the worst sex ratio among states in the country, has seen young women from sports to science to beauty fields making it big at the global level in recent years. No surprise then that her motto in life is, 'When you cease to dream you cease to live'. She was asked which profession according to her deserved the highest salary.

She said a mother deserves it most. Manushi had to battle with 108 contestants to bring the title to India! In less than one year, she won the "Miss Campus Princess" title in the medical college in December last year.

Soon after, congratulatory messages poured in. From Prime Minister Narendra Modi to B-town celebs, the whole country congratulated Manushi for the achievement.

"And we have a successor!" Manushi Chhillar is the sixth Indian victor of the long-running contest, following in the footsteps of Bollywood actresses Priyanka Chopra (Miss World 2000) and Aishwarya Rai (1994). Cherish and learn, and most importantly enjoy it.

Saturday marked the Miss World pageant's return to Sanya, on southern China's Hainan Island, for a seventh time, where the event was last held in 2015. "Super proud! Jai Hind".

The beauty queen, the first Indian to win the Miss World crown in 16 years, took to Twitter Monday to react to the politician's tweet. Manushi has not only added another success story, but the MBBS student has also become an inspiration to many.

The NCW chief said, "He hasn't hit below the belt only the girl but also the nation because she got fame & name to the nation". From a strict workout routine to a healthy diet regime, Manushi did everything that could help her bag the crown.
