Twinkle Khanna is #MarriedNotBranded

Awesome twosome Twinkle Khanna with Akshay Kumar | PTI

A Twitter user flooded Twinkle's Twitter feeds asking her why she did not drop her surname and adopt her husband's surname instead

Should women change their surname after marriage? This is no new topic for debate.

Actor-turned-author Twinkle Khanna, or Mrs Funnybones on social media, rested her case with tact and grace, when asked why she did not change her surname from Khanna to Kumar (or Bhatia since Akshay Kumar's real name is Rajeev Bhatia) on Twitter.

The user reached out to Twinkle thus:

In a curt response, the actor tweeted: “A lot of people bring this up,though not as stridently as this gentleman-Khanna it will always be #MarriedNotBranded"

Later, Twinkle shared a screenshot of the above tweets on her Instagram page as well.

Soon, Twitterati were supporting the actor with hilarious tweets. Meanwhile, the man who created the hoopla apologised to Twinkle, tweeting: "@mrsfunnybones sorry if my question hurts u madam I just ask that's all".

Twinkle married Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar in 2001 and they have a 14-year-old son named Aarav and three-year-old daughter Nitara. Twinkle is the daughter of actors Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia.
