Actress Twinkle Khanna, who did not shine in her brief Bollywood career, is now someone who has a great fan following in the virtual zone. She is a hit Twitter user and her jokes have the capability to light up anyone’s day.

One of her jokes, though, might have started troubles for her hubby superstar Akshay Kumar. It all started when Mrs Funnybones, this is Twinkle’s handle, took a jibe at the Art Of Living Founder, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Twinkle, had written, “Sri Sri got his nobel foot and half his beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic pose the BabaRamdev perfected a while ago #HolyMenandHairyTales.”

AOL followers, immediately defended Sri Sri, and trolled Twinkle. Trolling her was okay, till matter went a little out of hand. Followers of Sri Sri, threatened to boycott, Twinkle’s husband’s upcoming next Housefull 3.

AOL’s International director, Darshan Hathi took to Twitter to write, “Million f followers r going 2 boycott #Housefull3 4 hurting the sentiments by inappropriate and ill intended comments f @mrsfunnybones on Sri Sri.”

Later, Twinkle apologised for her tweet with, “Didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings was meant to be a joke and am old enough to accept an error of judgement on my part.”

As a reply to this Hathi wrote, “Error of Judgement or Fear of #BoycottHousefull3. Anyway Being Old and Being wise is different thing.”

After this tweet, Twinkle did not fear anything anymore. She openly called out the bluff of Hathi and said that if he didn’t get her joke, he is free to slam her but speaking about boycotting Akshay’s film was a real low.

Here are the tweets exchanged between them:

Twitteratti, however, sided with Twinkle. They came in her support saying that she just cracked a joke and she should not have apologised. Many also said that the Art of Living, is after all the Art of Intimidation.

So this is how the messiah of peace, @SriSri, preaches his followers to practice love and forgiveness? https://twitter.com/mrsfunnybones/status/729169240788373504 …

Well, we do not know if Akshay’s Housefull 3, will be affected by this joke of wife Twinkle or no. But we do know how boycotts have ruined movies in the past. Be it Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Dilwale’ or any other film, bans take a toll no matter how big a star. Let us see se if Akshay falls prey too. Only time will tell.
