Akshay Kumar has been in news due to his upcoming film Laxmii from last few days. And now actor’s wife Twinkle Khanna has written about her reaction to the controversy in her latest weekly column.
In her column, Twinkle has written that trolls have been sharing her morphed images on different social media platform to target Akshay for allegedly hurting religious sentiments with the title of his film.
Targeting Akshay, trolls shared edited pic of Twinkle, turned her skin blue and put a large bindi on her face, like Akshay was shown on the poster of Laxmii Bomb, before its name was changed to Laxmii.
Religious groups expressed disappointment that a Hindu deity’s name was attached to the word ‘bomb’ and demanded change in the title of the film.
Twinkle Khanna tweeted, Trolls are helpful just when I was looking for the image for https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/blogs/mrsfunnybones/boycott-bombs-and-a-middle-aged-bombshell/ here it is:)Crop rather than repost! One added ’3rd class http://person.You make joke about God.’I’m tempted to reply,’God clearly likes a good joke or she would not have made you.’”

In the column, Twinkle wrote, “The trolls have been after the man of the house’s Laxmmi Bomb and for some odd reason, they have taken pictures of me, turned my skin the same peacock shade as Lord Krishna, added a red bindi and are sharing posters called Twinkle Bomb. Honestly, I am rather flattered because this moniker has come along at the right time for, as a middle-aged woman, I was beginning to think that my bombshell days were far behind me.”
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar’s Laxmii is scheduled to release on Disney+ Hotstar on Monday.
