Back in 2017, MP Shashi Tharoor mocked the BJP government’s demonetisation drive using a pun on Manushi’s second name – ‘Chhillar’. The senior politician 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!”

Take a look at the tweet below:

The senior Congress leader received a barrage of criticism for the tweet saying it was unnecessary, pathetic and cheap. Netizens were quite disappointed with the tweet. However, hours later he apologized for his tweet on (Manushi Chhillar) and asked people to chill.

Soon after Manushi Chillar responded to Shashi Tharoor’s pun with more pun. She wrote, “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’s tweet came in response to Times Group MD Vineet Jain who said that people need to be more tolerant towards light-hearted humour.
