Looks like Akshay Kumar might have to pay for Twinkle Khanna’s actions. The 42-year-old interior designer recently took to her Twitter handle and innocently joked about the Art of Living pioneer Sri Sri Ravishankar on social media.

Khanna, who is @Mrsfunnybones on Twitter, wrote, “Sri Sri got his nobel foot and half his beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic pose the BabaRamdev perfected a while ago #HolyMenandHairyTales.”

Replying to Twinkle’s tweet that was later deleted, AOL’s International director, Darshan Hathi wrote, “Million f followers r going 2 boycott #Housefull3 4 hurting the sentiments by inappropriate and ill intended comments f @mrsfunnybones on Sri Sri.”

Later, Twinkle apologised for her tweet and wrote, “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.”

Replying t this Hathi wrote, “Error of Judgement or Fear of #BoycottHousefull3. Anyway Being Old and Being wise is different thing.”

Later, many people on the social network came out in support of Twinkle with tweets like, “@mrsfunnybones but why did u even apologize to these #AOL goons, disappointed. U made a joke & shd stand ur ground. @DarshakHathi” and “Disgusting mob behaviour by the art of living followers making @mrsfunnybones delete her joke on a man who deserves more such jokes” poured in.

    Followers of AOL should be aware that Sanyasis of the stature of Sri Sri are immune to both criticism like this one or by lavish praise & worshiping. Why then create this controversy & public debate ?? I dont believe even Sri Sri Himself would support this boycott of the film just because it stars the husband of the writer. !!!!! Had the President even consulted Sri Sri before rushing to the Press, I guess Sri Sri would have dissuaded him from such a silly action ! OR, would He ??

          What's that supposed to mean? Freedom of Speech and Expression has been exercised by both sides. Just because you don't agree with doesn't make it wrong!
