Modi with Akshay: PM takes a jib at Twinkle Khanna's Tweets
In a completely non-political chat with PM Narendra Modi, Bollywood hero Akshay Kumar shared a few lighter moments at the official residence in Delhi on Wednesday. The informal and relaxed chit chat with the Prime Minister has revealed many interesting things about him like his fitness and sleep schedule and how Mamata Banerjee gifts him kurtas every year.
The candid chat turned interesting when Modi brought Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna into the conversation. When Akshay Kumar asked how active he is on social media, Modi replied, "I am active on social media, it helps me stay up to date with what's happening around us." He then turned witty saying that he follows Akshay and his wife also on Twitter and well aware of the way Twinkle targets him. “From the way she targets me, I understand there must be peace in your family life. All her anger must be coming out at me. So in a way, I have helped you,” added Modi drawing brief laughter from the actor.
Soon after the interview got aired, Twinkle Khanna who is famous for her wit and humour, took to her official Twitter handle responding to Modi's light-hearted jibe, posting, "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."
Akshay Kumar has also shown some memes about PM Modi and asked what he thought of them. "I enjoy them. I look less at Modi; I look at the creativity," the Prime Minister said.
