  • Miss world 2017: Manushi Chhillar from Haryana, India won the title after 17 years

Manushi Chhillar and the other four finalists had to face the question and answer round which would determine the Miss World. Tharoor, sensing how his tweets weren't taken in as light-hearted a manner as he expected, apologised for the joke.

The finalists were declared on their official Facebook and Twitter handles. Chhillar was presented the crown by Stephanie Del Valle, the last year's Miss World victor from Puerto Rico at the event in Sanya City Arena in China which was televised live globally.

As the news of her winning the coveted pageant contest broke, Manushi Chhillar's native village Bamnoli in Jhajjar district, near Rohtak, erupted in joy.

The NCW's official Twitter handle wrote: "NCW condemn the tweet of @INCIndia leader @ShashiTharoor. He must apologize immediately", the organisation said.

When accused of misplaced priorities about pulling up Shashi Tharoor, NCW acting chairperson Rekha Sharma said that the quasi-judicial body had also written to Rajasthan DGP against all the men who have threatened Deepika Padukone.




It's been 17 years since the country has won the title, according to the Miss India twitter account, and the sixth time an Indian woman has been crowned the victor.

Stephanie Hill, a former Miss South Yorkshire, was crowned Miss England at a glittering awards ceremony earlier this year. To this, the daughter of doctor parents in Haryana aptly replied:"A mother deserves the highest respect". She is the biggest inspiration in my life.

"All mothers sacrifice so much for their kids. A mother's job deserves the highest salary".

About 180 women around the world participated to win the Miss World's crown. The last one to win the title was Priyanka Chopra.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala, who is an MLA from Haryana, also congratulated her.
