Boss Lady! Twinkle Khanna proves why she is the 'Khiladi' of Twitter
On the occasion of Bollywood actress-turned-author Twinkle Khanna's birthday today, we look back at instances from 2017 when her tweets won the internet! She is Mrs Funnybones, truly!
Twinkle Khanna urged people to talk about menstruation
Twinkle Khanna, who is producing a film titled "Padman", is campaigning to urge people to talk about menstruation
The importance of menstrual hygiene management (MHM) is mostly neglected. Menstrual hygiene is a taboo subject; a topic that many women are uncomfortable discussing in public. "Girls and women continue to face significant challenges in managing menstruation - in a safe and hygienic manner because of low levels of awareness about menstruation and menstrual hygiene, lack of access to safe products, and lack of access to water, sanitation and hygiene services.
"Underlying this are widely held beliefs that consider menstruation to be polluting and menstruating girls and women as impure."
Twinkle Khanna wanted to get away from her 'pesky' kids
We all know how Twinkle Khanna loves shooting from the hip. Often, Tina has got into trouble over her snarky, yet funny tweets. She has quite a considerable following on the popular micro-blogging site Twitter and is known for her funny and hilarious tweets. Popularly known as 'Mrs Funnybones', Twinkle Khanna has authored two books 'Mrs Funnybones' and 'The Legend Of Laxmi Prasad'.
This time, a post of hers on Instagram is sure to raise eyebrows. She has posted a picture of hers from Paris with the caption "Home away from home for the next few days #Paris #ThanksAirbnb #NoPeskyKidsThankGod #LiveThere."
Twinkle Khanna reportedly took a dig at her former co-stars Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan
Twinkle Khanna has lauded her husband and national award-winning actor Akshay Kumar's latest entertainer 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha', saying the Bollywood box-office needed it to break free from constipation
"So even the box office needed this Toilet eventually to break free from its constipation -- 'Toilet: Ek Prem Kath'. Hit Hit Hooray," tweeted Twinkle, who is known on social media as Mrs Funnybones.Twinkle's post hinted at the lukewarm performance of films like "Jagga Jasoos" and superstar Shah Rukh Khan's "Jab Harry Met Sejal".
Twinkle Khanna shared a picture of a man defecating on the beach , but stayed defiant after backlash
Twinkle Khanna received a lot of backlash on social media, when her picture of a man defecating on beach went viral. People slammed her on social media for being elitist and also called out her hypocrisy. People even accused her to be outraging the modesty of a man. Several op-eds were written about Twinkle Khanna's apathy and raising genuine concerns about public defecation.
But Twinkle Khanna, seems to be defiant and even justified her tweet saying that it is not her fault if people found her tweet 'sardonic'. She has even tweeted to an article criticising saying that if people can afford to drink with friends, they can afford to use public loos or buy a cup of tea in a restaurant and use the loo.

Twinkle Khanna defended her husband, actor Akshay Kumar, in the wake Of a controversy which erupted after he passed what was seen as an off-colour remark at stand-up comic Mallika Dua. The colloquial word 'bajao' is believed to carry violent or sexual undertones.Twinkle, however, argued that "bajao" was a "phrase that both men and women use" and called it a "pun on the words and actions related to the ringing of the bell".She posted a lengthy statement on Twitter, saying that she wanted to 'address the controversy' on the sets of 'The Laughter Challenge. "It's a colloquial phrase that both men and women use - for instance, 'I am going to bajao him/her' or I got bajaoed.'Red FM even has a tagline 'Bajate Raho' all without sexist connotations," she said
Twinkle Khanna takes on 'Bhai' fans
Twinkle Khanna received flak on social media for 'insulting' Salman Khan in her column. Twinkle Khanna, in her satirical take on matrimonial ads for a daily newspaper, wrote, "Alliance Wanted For One Of India’s Oldest But Most Eligible Bachelors: Dashing, non-vegetarian, successful and muscular Khandani boy. Excellent in dance, drama and art. Girl must be pretty, slim and enjoy long drives off the beaten path. Bride must not be very talkative, as groom cannot tolerate any buck buck. Caste no bar. Contact Sultan@Bhaijaan.com."
This irked Salman Khan fans who trolled her on social media for taking a dig at 'Bhai'. Some even threatened to boycott her husband Akshay Kumar's films.
Mrs Funnybones, however, had the perfect response to the trolls. Here's what she wrote:
'Befikre' Twinkle Khanna

Twinkle Khanna takes a jibe at Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's infamous comment on Pakistani teen activist Malala Yousafzai winning a Nobel prize
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had said, "Nowadays there is no value to the Nobel prize. When you award it to a 16-year-old girl who hasn't done anything, what value is left? It has become a political joke."
Twinkle tweeted: "Sri Sri got his nobel foot and half beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic pose that Baba Ramdev perfected a while ago #HolyMenAndHairyTales"
Soon after, all hell broke loose as several followers of Sri Sri's Art of Living course started trolling her.
Twinkle was quick to delete the tweet and apologise with another post saying, "Didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings was meant to be a joke and am old enough to accept an error of judgement on my part (sic)."
Twitter users were quick to react to the episode and backed Twinkle Khanna for her comments.
