Noted journalist Vinod Dua recently lashed out at Twinkle Khanna for writing in favour of her husband, Akshay Kumar on Twitter. In his latest post, he has called her an “embarrassed wife” making a prosaic excuse on the incident.
Mr. Dua also warned the “chap” (Akshay Kumar) to be careful in the future before making depraved statements.
He wrote in his post on Facebook: Ms.Twinkle Khanna responds to the laughter challenge controversy. It is a prosaic excuse from an embarrassed wife. Be that as it may, the point has been driven home. This chap will be careful in the future before making depraved statements like “Mallika ji aap Bell bajao, mai aapko bajaata hoon”. We don’t wish to pursue the matter any further.
Akshay Kumar recently embroiled a controversy after making an offensive remark at his co-judge Mallika Dua. The duo was seen sitting in the judge’s panel of The Great Indian Laughter Challenge.
After receiving wrath from fans, Mallika Dua took to social media to clear her stand which did not go down too well with Twinkle. She responded to it with a message on the public platform.
She had written, “I would like to address the controversy on the sets of The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. The show has a bell which the judges ring after a contestant’s exceptional performance and (when) Dua went forward to ring the bell, Kumar said, ‘Mallika ji aap bell bajao main aap ko bajata hun (You ring the bell, I will bang you).”
“A pun on the words and actions related to ringing the bell. It’s a colloquial phrase that both men and women use — for instance, ‘I am going to bajao him/her’ or ‘I got bajaoed’, all without sexist connotations. Vinod Dua, Maliika Dua’s father, had written a post — it’s been taken down now – stating, ‘I am going to screw this cretin Akshay Kumar’. Should Mr Dua’s statement also be taken literally or interpreted in context? Words, especially humour has to be seen in its right context,” she further mentioned.
However, the matter escalated further and Mr. Dua responded with his latest message. He also mentioned that they don’t wish to pursue the matter further. Well, let’s see if this marks the end of this conversation or will Twinkle respond to this one too.
