Popular for his superb comic timing, Akshay Kumar might have ventured into more serious and socially relevant films but has kept his funny bone alive. He keeps making appearances on small screen and tickling the viewers with his witty punches but his former colleague and comedian, Mallika Dua was not very impressed by it.

After being kicked out of the comedy show 'The Great Indian Laughter Challenge' due to poor TRPs, the comedian Mallika along with her father Vinod Dua lashed out on Akshay for passing a sexist comment on her while they were shooting for an episode. Kumar commented "Mallika ji aap bell bajaaiye, main aapko bajaata hoon".

The controversy was creating waves among the masses for a few days now but the 50-year-old refrained from further spiking the matter and kept mum but the entire ordeal didn't sit well with his wife. Known for voicing out her opinions without prior inhibitions, Twinkle Khanna defended her husband in the case.

She claims that the context of the comment was manipulated and shouldn't have been taken seriously. Ever since the debate has started, not just Akshay but Twinkle was also tagged in everything posted related which has apparently irked Mrs Funnybones to the core.

Clearing the air and reiterating the concept of the comedy show where the judges hold a bell in their hands for ringing to applaud and encourage the contestants for their good performance, Akshay's statement had a hidden pun which the regular viewers would have related to.

Twinkle went on and compared Vinod Dua's statement against Akshay which said, "I am going to screw this cretin Akshay Kumar" and asked if that should also be taken literally or just as an outrageous comment with no underlying threat.

Mallika is a well-known name in the world of comedy due to her various comedy stints on digital platforms. Extremely active on Instagram, the comedian keeps sharing her charming photos every once in a while and stay connected to her followers.
