Kindly change your bio...your sermons on feminism are just an eyewash...your stand on this issue is disappointing— Nimit (@nimitarora1991) October 29, 2017
I looked up to you till I read this tweet, This wasn't your best foot forward.— Ipshita Chatterjee (@ipuchatterjee) October 29, 2017
A simple apology never hurts anyone,
To err is human but to make jokes on something which has made some feel small and humiliated is not human. You are better than this@mrsbones— Teacher (@ModernDayEliot) October 29, 2017
In very poor taste! Tsk tsk! I actually liked this woman's sense of humour... #sad— Mimi (@SnehaMimi) October 30, 2017
In an unaired clip of The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, which found its way on the social media, Akshay Kumar can be heard saying, "Mallika ji aaap bell bajao, main aapko bajata hun." Mallika's father, journalist Vinod Dua, rebuked Akshay's language and wrote on Facebook (the post is now deleted): "I am going screw this cretin Aksahy Kumar." Defending her husband Akahsy Kumar, Twinkle said in her statement: "Should Mr Dua's statement also be taken literally or interpreted in context." She added: "Words, especially humour, have to be seen in its right context. I have always stood up for freedom within comedy including defending AIB's infamous roast on numerous occasion in the past and that is my stance even today."
Twinkle Khanna is the author of two bestsellers - Mrs Funnybones and The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad. Akshay Kumar was last seen in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and is awaiting the release of 2.0 and Padman in January 2018.
