Twinkle Khanna jokes about Karva Chauth; Twitterati don't appreciate her sense of humour

While many women across the country observed a day long fast praying for their husbands' long life, Twinkle Khanna had a sarcastic take on Karva Chauth.

Khanna, who is married to Akshay Kumar, shared her view on the age-old tradition on Twitter:

She immediately received some negative reactions for her tweet:

Not one to be offended, Mrs Funnybones had a witty response to that as well:

The actress is known for her sense of humour and has formerly also spoken about Karva Chauth in her book Mrs Funnybones. “I scan the list, confident that in this chart of life expectancy, the Indian man must definitely be in the top 5. Nope! There are 146 countries above us where the men have longer lifespans, and the biggest blow is that even with four wives who don’t fast for them, the Arab men outlive our good old Indian dudes,” The Indian Express quotes from her book. Here are some others from Twitter who did not get her sense of humour.
