Rustom Uniform Row: Akshay Supports Twinkle Khanna


The Rustom naval uniform donned by Akshay Kumar courted controversy of late. It all began after Twinkle Khanna called for an auction of the uniform to support the cause of animal rescue and welfare. But, she never sensed it that a good cause could evoke a life-threatening response to her. A troller said, “You touch our honour and we will give you a bloody nose.”

To this, Twinkle strongly reacted saying,”As a society, do we really think it’s all right to threaten a woman with bodily harm for trying to raise funds for a charity by auctioning a uniform used in a movie, a piece of film memorabilia? I will not retaliate with violent threats but by taking legal action!”

Meanwhile, Akshay, when asked about the ensuing controversy at the New India Conclave, said, “I support my wife on that matter. I and my wife are doing some work with good intention for a good cause. That was a costume that I used in the film. It is going for (for auction) a good cause. I do not think we have done anything wrong. If anyone finds it wrong then it is okay. I cannot do anything on that.”
