On Thursday this week, Akshay Kumar posted on his twitter to reminisce over his movie Padman and a highlight for the World Menstrual Hygiene Day. We saw his wife and former actress Twinkle Khanna dabbling into being a producer with this film. In his post, he tagged his co-actors, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte. He forgot to mention the producer (wife), filmmaker R Balki and the man on whom the story is based, Arunachalam Murugunantham.
To this one of his followers pointed out how he missed out on all these important people, Twinkle was quick to reply with something like, “Can you believe it! Ghar Ki Murgi to another level:)” [sic]. Twinkle in a separate tweet wrote, “Err…. You are definitely not part of my next production! #PadMan” [sic]”.
She further made a sarcasm that he won’t be a part of her net production!

Akshay realized and soon apologized by tweeting back:
“Please mere pet pe laat mat maaro.”
Please mere pet pe laat mat maro 🙏🏻 Missed tagging the team. Apologies to my producer, @mrsfunnybones, director #RBalki and the man without whom Padman wouldn’t be made @murugaofficial https://t.co/FbrOBSFLjG

In one such interview during the promotions, she was asked if she wanted to cast Akshay. She was quoted as saying:
“No. R Balki convinced me that Akshay should do this part.”
When she was further asked who was her first choice, Twinkle chuckled and asked back, “Are you trying to create trouble in my marriage now?” Akshay was quick to reply, “You already said that now (I was not your first choice for the film), there is already a problem.”
The couple made it look extremely cute and funny at the same time. They have always been going thick since the time they got married. Earlier while filming for the movie, Akshay Kumar had specially thanked his wife. He tweeted:
“The real #PadMan had his wife to thank for his story, so does the reel #PadMan 🙂 Full credit to this gorgeous superwoman for finding, chasing and making this film a reality. Over to you guys now. #PadManToday.”
