Akshay was questioned by task force on Ram Rahim, Twinkle recalls in column | Bollywood


In her column on boredom and what effects it has on real life, Twinkle Khanna shares some amusing instances from her own life, including an afternoon where she was transformed after watching the trailer of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan’s film Messenger of God. When she told people to watch the film in theatres on the first day with the Ram Rahim’s Love Charger T-shirts, the Dera Sacha Sauda members thought she was an actual fan. It led to her husband actor Akshay Kumar being questioned by a task force about their connection to him.

Titled ‘How boredom can lead you to love or the love charger’, the column by Twinkle hilariously recounts how boredom can lead to some strange behaviour. Giving her own example of being bored one afternoon and deciding to spend some time browsing on her phone, she found a film trailer.

She wrote in the Times of India column, “I had just seen the trailer of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan’s Messenger of God and heard the iconic song, ‘You are the Love Charger, billions battery when goes down you charged up with love so strong.’ I began asking people to come with me to catch the first day, first show of this cinematic outing, while urging them to wear T-shirts emblazoned with the Love Charger’s face that could be bought online at that point for 375. Loads of people wrote back to me saying they would come with me to see the movie.”

However, her ‘promoting’ the film led to her husband being questioned for his non-existent association with Ram Rahim. She continued, “Then members of the Dera Sacha Sauda started reaching out to me to arrange meetings with Ram Rahim since I was such a big fan. The climax of this disastrous tale was when my beleaguered partner who had never met, or for that matter spoken about Ram Rahim, was questioned by a task force about our connection to the ‘Godman’. They claimed that my tweet seemed to demonstrate I was clearly a devout follower.”

Akshay Kumar had been interviewed by a special investigation team (SIT) regarding his links to Dera Sacha Sauda head in November 2018. The actor had travelled to Chandigarh to give his statement at the time.
