Some apparently liberal dude on the Internet AKA Professor Rohit Chopra (@IndiaExplained) said this about Akshay Kumar meeting Narendra Modi yesterday:
He’s being called a misogynist for it for all kinds of good reasons: the patronising use of the word “cute”, for one, but more importantly, the straight-from-the-Dark-Ages belief that men and women in marriages should have exactly the same political beliefs, or that Khanna’s views should somehow be influenced by Kumar’s.
Twinkle Khanna, of course, wasn’t having any of it, and gave dude a fitting reply:
Better than a regressive tweet like this that calls ‘progressive’ pieces fluff and believes that marriage means sharing the same ideologies https://t.co/PwvKH0zwl3

Since people have been blasting him for his misogyny, he’s posted some sulky tweets about journalists being paid to write about Bollywood celebrities, and has asked Twinkle Khanna to confirm to him directly that she’s a Modi critic. Honestly, if you weren’t convinced that this dude’s a bit of a misogynist from his first tweet at Twinkle Khanna, the ones that follow in response to the outrage should leave you convinced.
