BJP corners Shashi Tharoor for his remark against Miss World Manushi Chhillar

It is to be noted that actress Priyanka Chopra was the last Indian to win Miss World in 2000.

As the medical student from Haryana won the coveted crown, Priyanka - who is now busy with an global career - had a word of advice for her successor. Tharoor apologised for his remark, which, he said, was a "light-hearted" comment and also praised Chhillar.

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor's attempt to attack the Centre over demonetisation using the surname of new Miss World Manushi Chhillar has invited strong criticism from the NCW chief and two senior ministers in the Haryana government.

Chhillar was handed the crown by last year's victor, Stephanie del Valle of Puerto Rico, at the ceremony in the Chinese coastal city of Sanya on Saturday night while Stephanie Hill of England and Andrea Meza of Mexico finished as runners-up.

It has been 17 years since Priyanka Chopra won the Miss World crown and we finally have another Indian Miss World ending the country's dry spell at worldwide beauty pageants.

Chhillar won the crown on Saturday in Sanya, China. She asked him to apologise and said the Haryana-born Chhillar was not just the pride of the state, but also of the entire nation.

Alma Andrea Meza Carmona, representing Mexico, and Stephanie Jayne Hill, representing England, finished in second and third places, respectively, at the 67th competition held in Sanya City. "My mother has been a huge inspiration.it is the mother's job that deserves the biggest salary". "I think a mother deserves the highest respect and when you talk about salary it's not always about cash but I feel it's the love and respect that you give to someone".

"All mothers sacrifice so much for their kids". Manushi is the sixth Indian to win the coveted crown, which was first won by Reita Faria back in 1966.

She wants to be a cardiac surgeon. A trained Indian classical dancer, Chhillar has a passion for outdoor sports and actively participates in paragliding, bungee jumping, snorkelling and scuba diving besides sketching and painting.
