Twinkle Khanna breaks her silence on the Akshay Kumar-Mallika Dua controversy

Writer, film producer and former actress Twinkle Khanna on Sunday took a stand for her husband Akshay Kumar after he was slammed by comedienne Mallika Dua for a remark aimed at her during a shoot, saying that the actors humour was taken out of context.

In a short post on Twitter, Twinkle suggested that people take comedy in the right context. Now, Twinkle has said that the comments made by her husband are not meant to be taken litreally, but as a joke.

She posted an open letter on her social media account which reads, "I would like to address the controversy on the sets of The Laughter Challenge".

"A pun on the words and actions related to ringing the bell. It's a colloquial phrase that both men and women use - for instance, "I am going to bajao him/her" or "I got bajaoed", all without sexist connotations", she added. She also said that in the context of the words used by Akshay, even Vinod Dua's sentence can be taken as a threat because the word screw means a different thing in different context and can be interpreted in different ways. I have always stood up for freedom within comedy including defending AIB's infamous roast on numerous occasions in the past and that is my stance even today.

Akshay Kumar and comedienne Mallika Dua are now at logger heads after the former star passed some comments on her.

It showcases Mallika's fellow judge Zakir Khan telling Akshay Kumar that they will also accompany him to "ring a bell" as a mark of appreciation for Rangeela for his act mimicking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi. A few weeks later, Mallika shared an unaired video of the show on Twitter in which Akshay tells her 'Aap ghanti bajaiye, main apki bajata hu (You ring the bell and I shall bang you).' She found the comment to be sexist.

Akshay has not responded to the controversy yet.
