HYDERABAD: Bollywood star Akshay Kumar acted in the film, PadMan and two years ago, the movie has hit the theatres. On Thursday (Menstrual Hygiene Day), Akshay took to his Twitter and tweeted as, "It's been 2 years to PadMan and I'm glad we managed to push the envelope a little on this taboo subject. This #MenstrualHygieneDay, I hope we move a step closer towards ending period poverty and breaking taboos surrounding menstruation."
He tagged the lead actresses Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte but forgot to mention his wife Twinkle Khanna, the producer of the movie. Twinkle Khanna reacted to Akshay's post and wrote as, "Err... You are definitely not part of my next production!"
The 'Housefull 4' actor is very quick at giving a response to his dearest wife. He responded to Twinkle's tweet as, “Please mere pet pe laat mat maro. Missed tagging the team. Apologies to my producer, @mrsfunnybones, director #RBalki, and the man without whom Padman wouldn’t be made @murugaofficial.” Here is the tweet.
