Mallika Dua has come into limelight for her father Vinod Dua’s Facebook post on Akshay Kumar. Renowned journalist Vinod Dua had earlier slammed the Khiladi actor for making vulgar remark at his daughter while shooting for TV show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge.
Vinod took to Facebook to share a clip of Akshay saying, “Aap bell bajao, main aap ko bajata hun’ (You ring the bell, I will bang you).” Along with the video, Vinod wrote, “I am going to screw this cretin Akshay Kumar for telling his co-worker Mallika Dua that ‘Aap bell bajao, main aap ko bajata hun’ (You ring the bell, I will bang you)… This is his sense of humour and language… Star Plus… Wake up.”
The post was immediately shared by Mallika and she wrote, “Hey! Quick question. Does anyone find 5:26 funny? Charming? Entertaining? Family entertainment. GEC.”
However, the post was later taken down from Vinod Dua’s Facebook page and Mallika’s Twitter handle was made private as soon as the Twitterati came out in support of the Bollywood actor.
Not taking too long to respond to people who called her “Guilty Conscience”, Mallika reverted by making her profile go public again. She later posted a screen shot of her father’s Facebook post and wrote, “Sorry to quash your hunger for sensationalism but Facebook and perhaps a copyright claim had it removed. Find something better to do.”

Vinod had earlier told IANS, “I don’t expect an apology from Star Plus as they have not aired this episode. But I expect an apology from this fellow (Akshay).”
Akshay is a Super Judge on the show. He made the remark when Mallika’s fellow judge Zakir Khan asked Akshay that they will also accompany him to ‘ring a bell’ as a mark of appreciation for contestant Shyam Rangeela, who mimicked Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
This act was not aired on the channel and is part of extra footage, according to a source. (With Inputs from IANS)
