There’s something about B-town wives standing up for their husband during controversies, and Twinkle Khanna is no exception. Most of you must be aware about the on-going spat between Akshay Kumar and comedienne Mallika Dua. If not, here’s what happened!
Akshay and Mallika were part of a laughter reality show, called The Great Indian Challenge. A leaked video through Star Plus (which is no longer available), showed the actor passing a rather inappropriate comment toward Mallika. When she rang the ceremonious bell on the show, Akshay was heard saying, “Mallika ji, aap bell bajao, main aap ko bajata hun.”
If you’re aware of Indian sentences that have colloquial meanings, you’ll know exactly what this means!
Following the comment, Mallika took to twitter to express her shock and displeasure of being treated that way, with Akshay being able to get past, just because he’s a superstar. Her dad, Vinod Dua, took the opportunity to express his sentiments too. Through a post on Facebook, he said, “I am going to screw this cretin Akshay Kumar for telling his co-worker, Mallika Dua that “aap bell bajao main aap ko bajata hun” at 5:26. This is his sense of humour and language. Star Plus.. wake up..”
All fair till here right? Coming to the rescue of her husband, Twinkle then took to Twitter, where she said:
Considering Mrs. Khanna is popularly known for her wit and her understanding of double meaning phrases, we wonder how she didn’t see sense in this one. And, the debate didn’t stop there. Going a step further, Twinkle decided to crack two rather distasteful jokes!
Taking it all in her stride, Mallika’s sassy response to Twinkle’s jokes was:
Haha! What did you think of this whole fiasco. Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
