Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar has recently interviewed Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a non-political conversation.
In the interview, PM Modi spoke a lot about his life and experiences, hobbies, except politics and elections.
During the conversation, Akshay asked Modi, if he is active on social media and follows people on the micro-blogging websites.
PM Modi to Akshay Kumar
To this, PM Modi said, “Social media se kayi jaankariyaan milti hain. Aur mai aapka bhi twitter dekhta hun aur aur twinkle khanna ji ka bhi twitter dekhta hun. Aur kabhi kabhi to mujhe lagta hai ki wo jo mere oopar gussa nikalti hain twitter pe to uske kaaran aapke pariwaarik jeewan mei badi shaanti rehti hogi[Akshay laughs]. Unka poora gussa mere par nikal jaata hoga. Isiliye aapko badaa araam-sukoon milta hoga. Toh mai aapke liye is prakaar se kaam aaya hun, khaaskar ke Twinkle ji ke liye!”
Reacting to this, Twinkle replied “I have a rather positive way of looking at this-Not only is the Prime Minister aware that I exist but he actually reads my work 🙂 (sic)”

PM Narendra Modi also revealed that he met Twinkle Khanna’s grandfather Chunnibhai Kapadia many years ago.
Citing the incident, PM Modi said, “Gujarat mein ek bohot bada akaal (drought) padha tha, toh hum log kuch na kuch samaajik kaam karte the. Usmein hum butter milk ke kendra chalaate thay (During a severe drought in Gujarat, some of us would do some social work. We would run a buttermilk centre).”
He added that a renowned sweetshop owner made Chunnibhai meet Modi during one of the programmes in Mumbai. “Unhone donation diya tha aur humne chaach kendra shuru kiye thay bohot badi matra mein. Toh us samay meri unki nanaji se mulaqat hui thi. Kaafi baatein huin thi unke saath (He had donated money and we began running a chaach centre. Back then I met her grandfather. We spoke quite a lot),” said PM Modi.
Talking about Twinkle Khanna, she is a well-known columnist and an author and is widely known as MrsFunnyBones on social media. If you recollect back in 2017, Mrs Khanna had lashed out at Modi government for imposing heavy taxes on sanitary pads.
