The bollywood diva and a recent hit author, Twinkle Khanna rightfully showed us the path to slam the trolls like a boss through one of her social media post. In her latest weekly column, Twinkle highlighted about the boycott that her husband, Akshay Kumar’s film Laxmii is facing in social media. She further remarks on how some of the the trolls have been sharing morphed pictures of her, in which she has turned into blue skin lady and put a large red bindi on her face to make it look similar to Akshay Kumar’s initial Laxmii posters.
Twinkle as a response to such, came up with a sassy reply. Sharing one of the morphed pictures she wrote, “The trolls are so helpful just when I was looking for the supporting image, here it is. Crop rather than repost-you will see why in my column today. One tagged this picture with a comment, ‘Third class person. You make joke about God.’ I am almost tempted to reply, ‘God clearly likes a good joke, otherwise she would not have made you.’ By the way, I think I am going with the new skin tone and bindi look this Diwali like a true-blue bombshell.”
The Akshay Kumar starrer film was earlier titled as ‘Laxmmi Bomb’. However, the makers of the film had to change it upon receiving several critisism and protest by some Hindu groups. They alleged that the title was meant to hurt the sentiments of the Hindus as it denotes an insult to the God Laxmi.
Referring to the same for being the sole reason behind the boycott and troll, Twinkle wrote this on her latest column in The Times of India, “The trolls have been after the man of the house’s Laxmmi Bomb and for some odd reason, they have taken pictures of me, turned my skin the same peacock shade as Lord Krishna, added a red bindi and are sharing posters called Twinkle Bomb. Honestly, I am rather flattered because this moniker has come along at the right time for, as a middle-aged woman, I was beginning to think that my bombshell days were far behind me.”
