‘Rustom’ costume row: Akshay Kumar supports wife Twinkle Khanna
Superstar Akshay Kumar and his wife Twinkle Khanna decided to auction his costume from ‘Rustom’ for a noble cause. The proceeds of the auction were going to be used for the cause of animal welfare and rescue. The Khiladi who has been doing his bit for several charitable causes, was in for a shock when their deed received a backlash on the social media.
A naval officer even went on to slam Twinkle and said that she would get a “bloody nose if she auctions the costume in the garb of a uniform.” Twinkle responded by saying, she would initiate a legal action against him for threatening her with violence.

The actor replied that he has not done anything wrong by auctioning off a costume he wore in the period thriller, ‘Rustom’.
The National Award winning actor said: “I support my wife on that matter. I and my wife are doing some work with good intention for a good cause. That was a costume that I used in the film. It is going for (for auction) a good cause. I do not think we have done anything wrong.”
“If anyone finds it wrong then it is okay. I cannot do anything on that,” he added.
On the work front, Akshay Kumar is gearing for the release of his next ‘Kesari’ and ‘Gold’.
