Actor and columnist Twinkle Khanna posted a follow-up tweet on Friday after her personal life was mentioned in a conversation between her actor-husband Akshay Kumar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi that became talk of the town.
The PM had earlier joked that Akshay Kumar must be leading a peaceful life at home since his critic, Twinkle Khanna, vented all her anger against him on Twitter.
Khanna, who is popularly known as MrsFunnyBones, had responded to the comment that caused an uproar in the online community, creating two factions — those who appreciated her and the others who criticised her.
In the heated election season, when many actors and films associated with political parties and ideologies are being put on hold before release, Khanna had commented, “I have a rather positive way of looking at this – Not only is the Prime Minister aware that I exist but he actually reads my work.”
Immediately after her response, many accused both Khanna and Kumar of endorsing the BJP and being active supporters and campaigners for it.
In response to this, Khanna shared a message that stated that her response to the PM’s views did not translate into any endorsement. She said the only party she wished to be a part of involved “liberal amounts of vodka shots and a hangover the next day 🙂 #PartyingShot”
Nothing more-Nothing less – A response does not translate into an endorsement. The only party I am likely to be a part of at this point would involve liberal amounts of vodka shots and a hangover the next day 🙂 #PartyingShot pic.twitter.com/Y14Ovvjymh

Khanna has on numerous occasions criticised the BJP government in the past. From levy of taxes on sanitary napkins to freedom of speech, she has targeted the establishment on several issues through satire at public forums and through her columns and blogs.
It is a known fact that Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar share differing political ideologies. Both have been vocal about their stance on many occasions.
