Today in Wait, What? Twitter wits have a field day at Shatrughan Sinha's expense
He's known for his quickfire wit, but we're sure Shatrughan Sinha wished he'd been more 'khamosh' on Sunday, 22 October. The veteran actor took to Twitter to wish longtime collaborator Kader Khan on his birthday — with a photo that featured Sinha with his Dostana co-star Amitabh Bachchan.

Sinha's curious choice of photo and message had Twitter confounded. Hilarious tweets poured in from Twitterati, with the number of digs at Sinha's expense possibly rivalling thenumber of films Kader Khan portrayed Govinda's father in.
Following the barrage of tweets at his expense, Sinha took to Twitter to issue a muddled clarification — of sorts. Reading between the lines (and the bad grammar) we presumed that Sinha meant that the wishes to Kader Khan had been extended on both his and Bachchan Senior's behalf, hence the picture of the duo in the original tweet instead of one with Khan.
