The Most Awkward Looking Couples We Will Ever See
Twinkle Khanna had recently supported Akshay's announcement to auctioning the "actual naval uniform" he wore in the film,Rustom. which was based on the 1959 Nanavati murder case.
Lt Col Sandeep Ahlawat also claimed author was “one of the finest men in uniform” known to him. In a Facebook post, Lt Col Ahlawat called Khanna's idea of auctioning the costume “as sick as your funnybones jokes/book/blog”. He wrote what Akshay wore in the film, as Commander Rustom Pavri for which he won his maiden National Film Award for best actor, was “a costume and not uniform”.
He also added by saying,“Indian Armed Forces wives (Army, Navy, Airforce) do not auction their husbands uniforms. 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 the 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 soldier along with the tricolour,”
Lt Col Ahlawat threaten Khanna by stating that “drag you to the court” if she even made “a feeble attempt to auction this piece of costume in the garb of ‘UNIFORM'.”
He also added in last by stating,“You touch our honour and we will give you a bloody nose,”
Twinkle replied back to those messages by saying, “to threaten a woman with bodily harm for trying to raise funds for a charity”.
“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,”
