Ever since former actress Twinkle Khanna has turned writer of columns and yes even a book, we have seen a funny, catty side to her that's profusely entertaining. Her tongue-in-cheek comments on various issues make for some good reading. So we thought we would bring you a few.


Ripped Misogyny apart

With Serena Williams being made fun of because of her bulging nipples from her white upper, Twinkle Khanna went on a Google search to find Leander Paes' nipple picture to prove that both men and women have them. And while at it, she did find a picture or two to corroborate her point. In her TOI article, she disclosed how misogynists make a big deal out of a woman's nipples while men flash them all the time.

Called Rajdeep Sardesai ‘Indian bua’

Not so long ago, while promoting her book Sania Mirza, ace tennis player was asked the question of when she was 'settling down' from noted journalist Rajdeep Sardesai. While media houses had a field day condemning Sardesai's question, Twinkle added the much needed hilarious take to it by calling Sardesai the typical Indian bua on her twitter account.

Art of living or Art of intimidation

Remember the time when popular Indian guru, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar slammed Malala Yousafzai for getting a Nobel Peace Prize? Well, Khanna had had to pay a small price here for being the funny woman that she is. She inadvertently made a witty remark- Sri Sri got his noble foot and half his beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic pose that Baba Ramdev perfected a while ago.” #HolyMenandHairyTales. This got the AOL followers raging and also threatening her that they will boycott her husband Akshay kumar's movie Houseful 3. Though she retracted her tweet, a strong Twitter community supported her for her humour.

There is no other actress who makes a comment on political and social issues so frequently and doesn't hesitate to be sarcastic about it as well. She does not only has opinions but also writes a blog about it in one of the leading newspapers in the country. We definitely look forward for more from this queen of sass!
