Mallika Dua mocks Akshay Kumar’s PadMan challenge with a Reply, Must See!!

Mallika Dua allegedly mocked Akshay Kumar’s PadMan challenge in her Instagram stories.

Padman film is based on the life of a social entrepreneur, Arunachalam Muruganantham, who invented a machine to manufacture low-cost sanitary pads in order to make it easily available and accessible to women belonging to different economic strata. Not only is the film releasing in 50 countries, this is also the first Hindi film to release in Russia. Over the last few days, Bollywood personalities, TV celebs and sportsmen have been posing with a sanitary pad in hand and sharing it on social media by tagging as many people as they want to continue the cycle of the Padman challenge.

Until now, actors like Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar, Deepika Padukone, Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Aditi Rao Hydari, Diana Penty, Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma and even sports personalities like PV Sindhu among others have posed with a pad to support the film.

However, seems like comedienne, Mallika Dua, is not in favour of the Padman Challenge. A few days ago she had taken a dig at Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s Padman Challenge by saying, “Always remember, each time you feel weak, each time you feel lesser than your equals, each time you feel you’ve been made to feel lesser for no reason and that the fight has just about begun… When you feel the society and the government have not given you your due, hold up a sanitary pad and post a picture of it on Instagram. You will feel empowered. So empowered. Bye.” However, many felt that she had a problem with the film and not the challenge. Clarifying her stance, the influencer and improv artiste took to Instagram to share another post. Take a look at the post below :

Following that, Mallika penned an open letter on how this issue isn’t about Akshay Kumar but for every big shot male who makes their female co-workers feel looked down upon. In response to this, Twitter demanded a response from Akshay’s wife Twinkle Khanna, who refused to be dragged into the debate, and posted jokes on Mallika and her father. However, in the end, Twinkle apologised to the comedienne in an open letter.

Viagra is tax free as policy made by 65-yr-old men: Twinkle

Twinkle Khanna has said America imposes taxes on menstrual hygiene products like tampons and sanitary napkins but Viagra is tax-free while adding,”Perhaps because policies are made by 65 – year-old men with erectile dysfunction. “Twinkle further said,”Pads are taxed at 12% in India but brooms are tax-free because it is more important to keep your house clean rather than your body.”

Women across the world are demanding that sanitary products must be tax-free, as these are related to menstrual hygiene, which is the necessity of every woman. However, not all women can afford expensive sanitary pads with an extra tax imposed on them. On the other hand, Viagra that’s used to treat erectile dysfunction in men is tax-free. But this product is neither of hygienic use nor it’s a necessary thing for every man.

Recently, when asked about the same topic at Victoria Derbyshire’s show on BBC, Bollywood actor-turned-writer Twinkle Khanna she raised the question that why sanitary pads are taxed in many American states but not viagra? She further said, “Because policies are made by 65-year-old men with erectile dysfunction.”

Besides her, many protesters around the world want an exemption of GST on sanitary napkins and urging every woman to take care of their personal hygiene. In the beginning of January, a group of students from Gwalior started a campaign by writing messages on sanitary napkins to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This was an initiative to urge the PM to eliminate the designated 12 percent GST on the product and make it free of cost.

Even her husband Akshay Kumar’s upcoming movie “Padman” is going to highlight the same issue. The movie is based on the life of the social entrepreneur and activist Arunachalam Muruganantham. She was the one who raised concern about sanitary hygiene in rural India 20 years ago.

‘Padman’ has also become the first Indian film to be screened at The Oxford Union. The movie is going to release
on February 9 after Akshay Kumar decided to postpone it from January 25 for avoid box-office clash with Sanjay Lela Bhansali’s controversial film ‘Padmavat,’ which stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor

OMG!! Every Couple Should Fight Like This. See How Akshay and Twinkle Fighting Last 16 Years

The most happening and the iconic couple in bollywood- Mr Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna- have completed 16 years of their marriage life.

To mark this 16 years of their bond, Twinkle Khanna, who goes by Mrs Funny Bones on twitter, posted a hilarious video giving it a witty caption “16 years of trying to kill each other and we still haven’t succeeded:) #16thanniversary #partnersincrime”

Twinkle Khanna reveals Akshay Kumar’s sex life on Koffee with Karan, it’s both hilarious and daring.

Twinkle Khanna is the absolute personification of candour and wit and there’s no match for her in those regards.

When the former actress made her debut on bff Karan Johar’s ‘Koffee Couch,’ alongside husband Akshay Kumar, she was inimitable bold and blunt self.

When Karan prodded her on how things had escalated from a fling to a serious relationship with Akshay, she didn’t shy away from revealing things as they were.

While Akshay was skeptical of labeling it a fling, when Twinkle reiterated that it had been one, better sense prevailed and he just decided to stay mum.

“I had come out of a long-term relationship and I wanted to just, for the first time in my life, have a fling. So I decided I was going to have one. There he was, ‘6-feet of chocolate ice-cream’, I’m going to have a fling with him and it’s going to last fifteen days,” she revealed, to hilarious results.

She also said Akshay has ‘some inches bigger’ than Khans of Bollywood. And she’s very happy about it.

Akshay and Tina, as she is known amongst family and friends, have been married for 15 years and are happy parent to a son, Aarav and daughter, Nitara.

Akshay Kumar has “Some Extra Inches” than Salman Shahrukh and Aamir, Twinkle Khanna thinks so!

We all know how witty, hilarious and outspoken Twinkle Khanna is! She is one of those ladies, who doesn’t think while speaking and pours her heart out. Though she is best friends with Karan Johar, she has never appeared on his popular show – Koffee with Karan. At the launch of her first book – Mrs FunnyBones last year, Twinkle even revealed that she had not appeared on KWK till now coz Akshay feared that she would go on the show and she would start with the word – ‘P*nis.’ Akshay even confessed that he lived in fear of what Twinkle says in public, especially on shows like Koffee With Karan. However, looks like dreams (or in this case nightmares) do come true as Twinkle and Akshay will be the next guests on Koffee with Karan season 5.

After a fabulous and hilarious start to the season with Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, Karan has got Akshay and Twinkle to be a part of the second episode of the show and I have to tell you, this episode is going to make you ROFL like never before. In the latest promo, we see Twinkle and Karan having a lot of fun, while Akshay is left speechless. During their fun banter, Twinkle reveals that she told Akshay that she would not have a second child with him untill he starts doing sensible films, to which Akshay cries and says, “I cannot tell you what I go through.”

And when Karan throws in a trick question about what Akshay has that the Khans don’t, Twinkle handles it like a boss and says, “Some extra inches.” However, she tells Karan not to look at the actor’s crotch as she was talking about his feet. She then went on to reveal that Karan had always had his mind on other people’s crotches, to which KJo replies, Crotch, crotch hota hai.” Both of them laugh, but Akshay is left speechless once again.

However, her next double meaning joke about the title Karan Johar‘s book on Bollywood will leave you in splits. In fact, it makes her husband go both – speechless and blush at the same time. Well we aren’t giving you more hints, check out the promo for yourself right here:

She is Mrs. Funnybones after all!

A guy proposed Tisca Chopra and she said Yes! “My husband wants to know for whom I’m leaving him for”

As always said, Indian twitter is way more humorous and wittier than anything else. And when it comes to cinema, our Bollywood queens are so good at slaying the questions asked on twitter with their humor.
