Twinkle Khanna calls Rajdeep Sardesai ‘bua’


Twinkle Khanna, best known as Mrsfunnybones took a dig at senior journalist Rajdeep Sardesai after his sexiest question to Sania Mirza. On the autobiography launch of ace tennis player Sania Mirza, titled, ‘Ace Against The Odds’, Rajdeep took the opportunity to interview Sania and he faced an embarrassing situation when he questioned Sania about settling down, motherhood etc.

Well, Sania had the most befitting answer to Rajdeep’s question but after the interview Twinkle, who is known for her witty remarks did not miss the opportunity to take a dig at Sardesai and tagged him ‘nation’s bua’.

Sharing an article from The Indian Express, MrsFunnybones tweeted, “Like the embarrassing aunt we all had who pestered us about ‘settling down’-I guess the nation has found a new bua”.

When Rajdeep Sardesai was interviewing tennis player Sania Mirza about her memoirs, he asked her, “Amidst all the celebrityhood, when is Sania going to settle down? Is it going to be in Dubai? Is it going to be in any other country? What about motherhood… building a family… I don’t see all that in the book, it seems like you don’t want to retire just yet to settle down.”

To which Sania Mirza replied, “You don’t think I’m settled? You sound disappointed that I’m not choosing motherhood over being number one in the world at this point in time.”

She added, “But I’ll answer your question anyway, that’s the question I face all the time as a woman, that all women have to face — the first is marriage and then it’s motherhood. Unfortunately, that’s when we’re settled, and no matter how many Wimbledons we win or number ones in the world we become, we don’t become settled. But eventually, it will happen, not right now. And when it does happen I’ll be the first one to tell everybody when I plan to do that.”

Even though Rajdeep immediately apologised, social media trolled Rajdeep and Twinkle Khanna.
