Actor-turned-columnist Twinkle Khanna took a jibe at PM Narendra Modi's meditation tour
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar shares an amazing rapport with PM Narendra Modi, so much that last month he had a long ‘non- political’ conversation with him, which grabbed headlines worldwide. However, the same cannot be said about his wife, Twinkle Khanna.
Recently, she cracked a joke with respect to PM Modi's meditation session in Kedarnath caves, the pictures of which have now gone viral. However, netizens were not amused by the joke and Twinkle became a victim of trolls.
On Saturday, PM Modi meditated for 18 long hours in a holy cave at Kedarnath, many pictures from the location were shared on PM's social media accounts, which also gave birth to dozens of memes on the internet.

Joining the bandwagon, Twinkle took to her social media and trolled the PM saying, "Folks please sign up - After seeing so many spiritual images in the last few days I am now starting a series of workshops ‘Meditation Photography-Poses and Angles’. I have a feeling after wedding photography this is going to be the next big thing :) #AJokeADayMayKeepJillSane (SIC)." She also shared a photo from her meditation session.
Netizens were not impressed with her humour and the actress suffered backlash instead. Some called her an ‘attention-seeker’, while a lot of them dug out some old pictures of her meditating.
Take a look:
Congratulations Twinkle ma'am, where did you learn so many ways of saying "I am attention seeking"? Are you also a victim of demonization?— Chowkidar Osheen🇮🇳 (@Megha94507473) May 20, 2019

Much as I admire your gutsy outpourings this tweet is in definitely bad taste. You would rather see 'airport looks 'published? How come you never thought of starting a series on that or the ones of star families holidaying?— Duttaginni (@Duttaginni) May 20, 2019
Twinkle has often criticised the government in her blogs and on social media, and surprisingly PM Modi is very much aware of the same. In his apolitical interview with Akshay Kumar, PM Modi said, "Main aapka bhi Twitter dekhta hoon aur Twinkle Khanna Ji ka Twitter dekhta hoon. Kabhi kabhi toh mujhe lagta hai ki vo mere upar gussa nikaalti hai Twitter pe, toh uske kaaran aapke parivaarik jeevan mein badi shaanti rehti hogi. Unka pura gussa mujpe nikal jaata hoga isliye aapko araam rehta hoga. Toh is prakaar se main aapke kaam aaya hoon (I see your Twitter as well as Twinkle Khanna's. Sometimes I feel that she pours out her anger on me, so things must be peaceful in your family life. She pours out all the anger on me so things would be comfortable for you. In this way, I have turned out to be helpful for you.”
