Bollywood Khiladi aka Akshay Kumar has to render a public apology (Off-course a humorous one) to his spouse aka Bollywood Veteran: Twinkle Khanna for not mentioning her name in a tweet on Padman.
These days, unlike the past females, want an equal share of compensation both in professional and personal lives no matter whether it is of monetary nature or not.
One such incident happened with Bollywood Couple: Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna.
Akshay Kumar took to his Twitter handle to remember his movie, Pad Man, on the eve of Menstrual Hygiene Day. Akshay shared that he is glad to have pushed the envelope on menstrual hygiene conversation in India, through his home production.
He thanked all his co-stars Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte for being a part of it. But he forgot to mention his wifey, Twinkle Khanna, who co-produced the film. But Twinkle wasn’t the one to leave her due credit and teased Akshay that he will not be part of her next production, Akshay humbly apologized to his wife. Have a look!
Celebrating PadMan, Akshay tweeted,
“It’s been 2 years to #PadMan and I’m glad we managed to push the envelope a little on this taboo subject. This #MenstrualHygieneDay, I hope we move a step closer towards ending period poverty and breaking taboos surrounding menstruation. @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte.”
Here’s Twinkle’s reply,
“Err…. You are definitely not part of my next production! #PadMan.” When a twitter user pointed this out to her, she replied, “Can you believe it! Ghar Ki Murgi to another level:)”
Akshay without wasting a moment sincerely apologized to his wife by writing,
“Please mere pet pe laat mat maro. Missed tagging the team. Apologies to my producer, @mrsfunnybones, director #RBalki and the man without whom Padman wouldn’t be made @murugaofficial.”
Talking about PadMan. It is a 2018 film both written and directed by R. Balki. The film is based on the real-life story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a social entrepreneur hailing from Tamil Nadu. Padman received immense appreciation from critics, and it went on to win the Best Film on Other Social Issues award at the 66th National Film Awards.
