The political Twinkle

Twinkle Khanna is one sassy woman – the lady never shies away from calling a spade a spade. If she feels strongly about something, you bet your last penny she will talk about it. Openly. Little wonder then that she has tweeted about the Padmavati controversy, leaving no room for doubt as to where she stands on the matter.

Sample this Tweet that she shot off on November 19:

“And as far as #Padmavati is concerned I wish it is the biggest hit ever as that would be the befitting rejoinder to all these loony threats!”

And that is not all.

In a recent blog post that she wrote for The Times of India, Mrs Funnybones (yes, that is her Twitter handle) slammed those who are offering bounties for beheading Deepika Padukone, and other violence-propagating types.

She also had strong words for those who have threatened Kamal Haasan and Farooq Abdullah.

Here is an excerpt from her blog: “The silver lining to my sleep-deprived cloud is that at least I get some quiet time to acclimatize my brain as well as my body to India’s boiling climate where people are busy offering bounties: Rs 25,000 to blacken Kamal Haasan’s face, cut Farooq Abdullah’s tongue and earn Rs 21 lakh, a slap across Lalu’s son’s face could score you a cool crore and finally, of course, from Haryana BJP’s Suraj Pal Amu, a grand prize of Rs 10 crore for beheading Deepika Padukone.”

“I am certain that if rewards were offered for blackening a cow’s face or chopping her body parts off, there would be riots all over the country, but since here we are only talking about lopping off bits of human anatomy, all seems to be well.”

“I quickly shoot off an email to Mr Suraj Pal Amu…’Dear Sir ji, It is lovely that you are supporting your party’s claims that the Indian economy is booming by offering such generous payment terms. I did have a question though before I apply for the job, is the beheading fee of 10 crore inclusive of GST?’

Phew! What a gal!!
