Producer-author and entrepreneur Twinkle Khanna believes in taking legal action instead of retaliating with ‘violent online threat’.
“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,” Twinkle replied to a troll.
Twinkle commented on Twitter after being trolled for auctioning National-Award winning actor Akshay Kumar’s naval uniform from the film Rustom. The period thriller is based on the real life incident of Naval officer K M Nanavati and businessman Prem Ahuja.
The social media user, Sandeep Ahlawat took to Facebook to share his two cents on actor turned columnist’s thoughts and said, ” If you even make a feeble attempt to auction this piece of costume in the garb of “UNIFORM” then I will drag you to the court. You touch our honour and we will give you a bloody nose.”
He went on to add, “Uniform is not a piece of cloth that a producer hands over to cinestars for enacting roles and make some quick bucks. The permission to wear Uniform comes from the office of the President of India. Uniform is earned with your blood, toil and sweat which is placed on the mortal remains of a soldiers along with the tricolour.”
“Indian Armed forces wives (Army, Navy and Airforce) do not auction their husbands uniforms,” he said.
The proceedings of the bid will support the cause of animal welfare and rescue.
