PM Modi-Akshay Kumar’s interview: PM Modi takes a dig at Twinkle


Lately, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar interviewed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and in their non-political conversation, PM Modi referred to Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna.

Among many light hearted questions, the actor asked PM if he actively follows people on Twitter and the conversations taking place on social-blogging site.

To which, PM Modi replied, "Main aapka bhi Twitter dekhta hoon aur Twinkle Khanna ji ka Twitter dekhta hoon. Kabhi Kabhi toh mujhe lagta hai ki vo mere upar gussa nikaalti hai Twitter pe, toh uske kaaran aapke parivaarik jeevan mein badi shaanti rehti hogi. Unka pura gussa mujpe nikal jaata hoga isliye aapko araam rehta hoga. Toh is prakaar se main aapke kaam aaya hoon (laughs)." Twinkle Khanna is known to make very strong statements on Twitter.

In a recent interview to Hindustan Times, Akshay revealed that "he did not know where to look", when PM Modi had made the lighthearted dig at Twinkle. "I did not know where to look. I was stumped by his wit, and the very sporting manner in which he said it. I didn’t know what to reply. I could only laugh embarrassingly and I thought to myself ek taraf biwi, ek taraf desh ka Pradhan Mantri. Both have powerful portfolios in my life. It’s best to stay quiet."

Twinkle Khanna had taken sweet jibe on PM Modi and tweeted, "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."
