Mumbai, Actor-turned-author Twinkle Khanna on Friday quipped that there’s only one “party” she would like to be part of amidst the ongoing 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
One of her tweet’s in response to PM Narendra Modi’s comment on her had created speculations on social media whether she was looking at entering politics or supporting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
But Twinkle cleared the air with a tweet : “Nothing more – Nothing less – A response does not translate into an endorsement. The only party I am likely to be a part of at this point would involve liberal amounts of vodka shots and a hangover the next day.”
Twinkle’s husband and actor Akshay Kumar recently interviewed PM. In the interview, Modi took a dig at Twinkle saying he keeps a close tab on social media and knows about her views on his governance.
“She gets really angry with me, which is good. Since all her anger is focussed at me, your family life must be quite peaceful,” Modi told Akshay of Twinkle.
Twinkle took Modi’s comments in a positive way 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.” This created buzz that she may enter politics or start supporting the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Modi speaking to Akshay Kumar on Tuesday in a “candid and completely non political” conversation took credit for maintaining peace in the Kumar-Khanna household.
In the interview Modi did not miss the fact that Twinkle has been caustic towards him and said that he keeps a close tab on the social media and follows the couple’s tweet.
“I come to know a lot of things from the social media. I even follow you and your wife and that’s how I know she gets really angry with me, which is good. Since all her anger is focussed at me, your family life must be quite peaceful,” Modi remarked.
An avid social media user, Twinkle, in 2017, had criticised the Modi government for imposing hefty taxes on sanitary pads.
She juggles many roles as a mother, newspaper columnist, film producer, former film actress and interior designer. Her first book “Mrs Funnybones” sold over one hundred thousand copies, making her India’s highest-selling female writer of 2015.
