Twinkle added that she “reached a breaking point” after Akshay and their five-year-old daughter Nitaara was dragged into it.
Twinkle Khanna seems to be getting caught in the Akshay Kumar-Mallika Dua controversy, the more she tries to get away from it. After defending her husband, saying ‘humour has to be seen in the right context’ and cracking a joke on the situation, she’s issued a long clarification on her Facebook account.
“As I reflect on my actions this past week, I realise that I got pulled into this debate not as a social commentator but as a wife and unlike my normal, slightly rational self, my reaction was purely emotional and without perspective, and I have been rather miserable about it ever since,” she wrote, adding, “I would like to apologise to everyone who felt that I was trivialising the cause of feminism especially because I strongly believe in equality and have been a feminist from the time I was a young woman, much before I even knew the term.”
Twinkle added that she “reached a breaking point” after Akshay and their five-year-old daughter Nitaara was dragged into it. “And with my protective instincts in overdrive, I reacted irrationally with the only tools I have that help me retain my sanity in this fishbowl existence — words and lame jokes — though they have got me into trouble often enough in the past as well.”
She went on to say, “I am not this woman, clearly, but I am going to try to be a little wiser from now on.”
