Twinkle Khanna’s fight with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar goes viral


Twinkle Khanna’s joke about the founder of Art of Living Sri Sri Ravi Shankar did not go well with AOL’s followers and Darshak Hathi, the International Director of AOL called for the boycott of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film, ‘Housefull 3’.

Twinkle Khanna, the former actress and columnist joked about Ravi Shankar. Twinkle jokingly tweeted, “Sri Sri got his noble foot and half his beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic pose that Baba Ramdev perfected a while ago.” #HolyMenandHairyTales.”

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar recently made headlines when he suggested that Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize winner who fought for girls’ education did not deserve the award. But the joke didn’t go down well with Art of Living fans. 

Deeply hurt by Twinkle Khanna’s joke, the director of AOL, Darshak Hathi called for the boycott of Akshay's multi-starrer ‘Housefull 3’. He also tweeted that her comments were ill planned and did not make sense.

However, Twinkle Khanna quickly responded and took down her tweet. Following Twinkle's tweet she was trolled by Ravi Shankar's followers but she was backed by her follower and the AOL director was slammed for harrying the former actress.

Here are the series of tweets:
