Speaking on her confusion as to why someone would want to sing the national anthem when one only intends to catch a film and enjoy, Twinkle Khanna wrote, “I still can’t wrap my head around how and why I am obliged to feel patriotic when I have merely booked tickets for Befikre, and am about to see Ranveer Singh in his tight red underwear.”

Interestingly, Khanna better half Akshay Kumar is hard core supporter of PM Modi has not commented anything on Demonetisation or National Anthem yet.


Twinkle went on to write about a friend whose husband stands up whenever our national anthem plays on the television, this sounds very intresting. In response, Twinkle apparently said, “You should count yourself lucky. Now, you won’t have to dress up as a nurse or a skanky French maid, just get into your bedroom, and play Jana Gana Mana on your iPhone.”

Her frirnds squeals, ‘You have such a twisted mind, gross!’

She replied, ‘Everyone is mixing nationalism and sex. I’m just making jokes but Shree Maruti Herbal is advertising its ‘Stay On’ pill with a tagline that says: “Think demonetization, think ‘Stay On’.

It’s not a bitter pill. It’s a power capsule. Watch with pride the emergence of Super Power- the India!”’

However, the best part of the blog came where Twinkle wrote about suggesting her friend to go cashless economy and how.

“Swallow the bitter pill called demonetisation, forget about cash on delivery to conceal evidence of your purchase and just buy a vibrator with your credit card,” Twinkle solemnly advised her friend in her blog.

Meanwhile, Twinkle Khanna’s second book – a collection of short stories titled The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, is doing rather well in the Indian bestsellers’ list.
