Twinkle Khanna, who goes by the Twitter handle @mrs.funnybones, is a hit on social media with her jokes and witty observations. A few days ago, Khanna posted a picture of a man defecating on a Mumbai beach, on her Twitter account. Cheekily, Khanna said it was the "first scene of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha 2."
The picture posted by Khanna was cheeky enough, but it was also read as promoting her husband's film by highlighting the prevalence of open defecation even in a place like Mumbai. Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha was released on 11 August and has joined the Rs100 crore bandwagon.
While most people saw the lighter side of it, there were a few who weren’t amused by Khanna’s actions. For example, this user asked Khanna to build a toilet for people living in the slums.
Inspite f promoting ur husband film once visit Mumbai slum areas & try to build one toilet for them. So u can avoid these things.— Anushku_Anamika (@ItsPbg) August 22, 2017
Some even used this as an opportunity to mock Khanna for her poor acting career.
She is trying hard to remove that Super flop tag ,She is only good in making fun of others— KOVACIC (@itsMj7) August 22, 2017

No sardonicism here...— Sameer (@QmSameer) August 22, 2017
You are impinging on the privacy of a person and taking his pic without his permission.
Unfazed by the trolls, Khanna defended her post saying the timing of her husband's film and this incident were purely 'ironical'.
