Twinkle Khanna has never minced words when it comes to giving it right back to trolls online. Be it responding to social media users who took digs at Akshay Kumar meeting PM Narendra Modi or to those celebrating Karva Chauth, Mrs Funnybones has been as blunt and transparent as one could be. So when she posted a photo of herself posing like a style goddess in PJs as she sits on books and Instagram users decided to ‘school’ her for it, she was not the one to take it lying low.
Khanna looked beautiful as she posed in floral, comfortable separates, with her wavy hair open and rocking the nude make-up. But all many on the Internet could notice was that she was sitting on the books and ‘stomping her heels on them’. Well, she wasn’t exactly doing that because in her own words, “My foot is on a stool and not a book because I don’t want to get dust on the cover”.
In the caption of the Instagram post, she addresses “the easily outraged” and takes the cake with her response, yet again.
Read her response here.
“Sometimes I get to do this as well- like the Madonna song ‘Strike a pose -Vogue, Vogue Vogue!’ @vogueindia P.S For the easily outraged : My foot is on a stool and not a book because I don’t want to get dust on the cover- aside from that I have no qualms with sitting on books, sleeping next to them or even keeping a pile in the bathroom to read regularly-The God of Wisdom visits you when you read books not worship them – Love and laughter from this bookworm.”
These are some of the replies it generated soon after.
Looking perfect gorgeous hot beautiful but foot on books?? Who else’s will respect books if not a writer.
