Former Bollywood actress and now a successful interior designer and acclaimed author Twinkle Khanna has carved herself a reputation of being intelligent, witty and honest to the point. Twinkle Khanna who goes by the name Mrs Funnybones on social media often takes up trolls and sociopolitical issues with clever jibes and comebacks. She ensures that she never minces her words when calling a spade a spade and almost always never fails to make her point across. Her wit and humour has become so legendary now that even Karan Johar, Aamir Khan and her husband Akshay Kumar are scared of her words. So it comes as no surprise when she savagely called out on a Twitter troll who posted a picture of her husband, actor Akshay Kumar talking to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Akshay Kumar had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently and informed him about his upcoming movie Toilet, Ek Prem Katha opposite Bhumi Pednekar which is based on the Prime Minister’s initiative of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

A Twitter account called @IndiaExplained posted Akshay Kumar and Narendra Modi’s picture and tweeted , “Kind of cute how Twinkle Khanna writes ‘progressive’ fluff pieces in ToI while Akshayji dances with Pogrom Modi. Indian elites in nutshell.” Twinkle Khanna who does not take any drubbing lying down was quick to retort and wrote on Twitter, “Better than a regressive tweet like this that calls ‘progressive’ pieces fluff and believes that marriage means sharing the same ideologies”. Twinkle Khanna’s retort was lauded by Twitterati. Akshay Kumar meets Prime Minister Narendra Modi and talks about his upcoming film Toilet Ek Prem Katha!
