Akshay Kumar on Twinkle Khanna's tweet

Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ has hit the bull’s eye at the box office. Recently, a success press conference was held where Akshay addressed the media via Skype from London. It was during the interaction when he was asked about his wife Twinkle Khanna’s tweet where she had apparently mocked at Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan for their flop films.

For the uninitiated, it was after ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ going strong at the box office, Twinkle had taken to Twitter and shared, “So even the box office needed this Toilet eventually to break free from its constipation-#ToiletEkPremKath Hit Hit Hooray!” [sic]

The tweet seemed like a dig at Salman and SRK, as their previous releases ‘Tubelight’ and ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, which met with an lukewarm performance at the box office. Finally, reacting to his wife’s tweet, Akshay Kumar said, “Twinkle’s tweet on Bollywood constipation on hits is funny.” [sic] (Also Read: Toilet – Ek Prem Katha movie review: Capable of striking meaningful conversations)


“There are many jokes which are being made on ‘Toilet’ which is good for the society. People are talking about it,” added the actor. [sic]

Talking about the film, ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ is the first film after implementation of GST that became tax free. A special screening of the film is being organised for the Panchs (village representatives) and Sarpanchs (village heads) of Gurugram district.

After ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’, Akshay Kumar will next be seen in ‘Padman’. He also has films like ‘2.0’ and ‘Gold’ in his kitty.
