Now, we don't believe the fabulous Dimple Kapadia really dissed Twinkle's column nor that she could be so easily replaced by colleague Hema Malini. But like many others, we're laughing at this Twinkle joke, the latest in MrsFunnyBones' particular brand of humour.
Me:Saw my column?Mom:No!more imp did u buy dishes 4 ur kitchen Me:Cn i exchange u 4 HemaMalini at least I will get a free KentRO #worldwar— Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) February 17, 2015
It's not her hilarious Twitter feed, however, but this article on censorship written for Times of India that is the reason why the former actress is trending on Twitter. In her piece, Twinkle writes: "Shouldn't we save our strength to protest against things that really matter - like gangs of men still killing and raping women as they did again in Rohtak; that we spend $38.35 billion on warfare but are slashing our health care budget by 20% despite being a country whose public spending on health is already among the lowest in the world; that a bunch of us have been called 'haramzade' on a political platform from a member of the party that governs us and not from a standup comedian but no FIR is filed against the politician but is filed against the AIB comedians instead."

The response on Twitter was instant and almost entirely admiring. Much of the public applause came from the film fraternity, direct casualties of both the controversy over the Roast and the recent bleeping of the word 'Bombay' in a song.

Her actor husband recently told news agency IANS: "She was once known as 'Mrs Kumar', but in all honesty, she rocks as 'Mrs Funny Bones' even more."
