- "Enjoying peaceful Chinese meal with no monosodium glutamate," wrote Kiku
- Twinkle noted his post and responded with one of her own
- "And life moves on with its tongue firmly in its cheek," she tweeted
Hahaha! And life moves on with its tongue firmly in its cheek:) https://t.co/3dAz5dQ9x3— Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) August 28, 2017
The backstory here is this - last year, Kiku was arrested briefly for mocking Ram Rahim on the TV show Comedy Nights. On Friday, Ram Rahim was convicted of rape, a verdict that sent his followers into paroxysms of violence which left several dead and many more injured. On Sunday, Twinkle published her column, dedicating inches to Ram Rahim's series of films starring himself as the 'Messenger of God' (or MSG, if you will) and the 'Love Charger Baba.' She ended with a note for Kiku who, Twinkle wrote, "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."
He did just that, it appears.
Twinkle Khanna, whose Mumbai neighbourhood Ram Rahim moved into some months ago, posted this tweet after the Dera Sacha Sauda head was convicted:
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!— Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) August 26, 2017
Gurmeet Ram Rahim has been sentenced to 20 years in prison. We'll watch Twitter for more MSG posts from Twinkle.
