Remember last year, comedian Kiku Sharda was arrested for mimicking Dera Sacha Sauda chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh on Comedy Nights? Kiku was also sent to 14 days in judicial custody for the same. Today, in a 15-year-old rape case, when the self-styled godmanwas sentenced to 10 years of jail (for raping two women) and fined Rs 65,000, Kiku has reacted to the sentencing.

Kiku took to Twitter to tweet, “Enjoying a peaceful Chinese meal with no monosodium glutamate @mrsfunnybones @priyankasharda3,” tagging Twinkle Khanna and his wife Priyanka Sharda. To Kiku’s Twitter post, Twinkle Khanna responded, “Hahaha! And life moves on with its tongue firmly in its cheek:)

If you’re wondering to what led to this Twitter exchange, here’s the back story – Kiku was arrested for mocking Ram Rahim and when he was convicted of rape, on Sunday Twinkle Khanna dedicated a column to the alleged rapist, in which she wrote, “I think he (Kiku) should immediately go to the nearest Chinese restaurant to celebrate, order a beer and tell the waiter, ‘I don’t want any monosodium glutamate in my Schezwan chicken, you people should lock away your MSG too. Cheers!” Therefore, Kiku did just as she said and was making a reference to Twinkle’s column titled ‘When the Love Charger ran out of batter’ in his Twitter post.

While the stand-up comedian is celebrating the verdict, Twinkle had tweeted, “Our fault Babas exist as we turn towards them like silly sunflowers looking for the sun, forgetting that a halo is just a trick of the light!”
