Twinkle Khanna replies to Modi's saara gussa remark: Not only does PM know I exist, he reads my work too
When Akshay Kumar met Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a candid conversation recently, PM Modi told Khiladi Kumar that his wife Twinkle Khanna often lashes out at him on Twitter. Soon Mrs Funnybones took to social-blogging site saying that she takes this in a positive manner as the prime minister is not only aware of her existence but also reads her work.
A few minutes after Akshay's interview with PM Narendra Modi was telecast, Twinkle Khanna said, "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 :)"

During his interaction with PM Modi, Akshay Kumar asked him if he actively follows people and their conversations on Twitter. To which, PM Modi replied, "Main aapka bhi Twitter dekhta hoon aur Twinkle Khanna ji ka Twitter dekhta hoon. Kabhi Kabhi toh mujhe lagta hai ki vo mere upar gussa nikaalti hai Twitter pe, toh uske kaaran aapke parivaarik jeevan mein badi shaanti rehti hogi. Unka pura gussa mujpe nikal jaata hoga isliye aapko araam rehta hoga. Toh is prakaar se main aapke kaam aaya hoon."
PM Narendra Modi also revealed that he met Twinkle Khanna's grandfather Chunnibhai Kapadia many years ago.
Citing the incident, PM Modi said, "Gujarat mein ek bohot bada akaal (drought) padha tha, toh hum log kuch na kuch samaajik kaam karte the. Usmein hum butter milk ke kendra chalaate the."
He added that a renowned sweetshop owner made Chunnibhai meet Modi during one of the programs in Mumbai. "Unhone donation diya tha aur humne chaach kendra shuru kiye the bohot badi matra mein. Toh us samay mein unki nanaji se mulaqat hui thi. Kaafi baatein huin thi unke saath," said PM Modi.
