Twinkle Khanna reacted to the Will Smith-Chris Rock slap gate that rocked the Oscars 2022 in her own satirical ways. Since the Academy Awards concluded this year, Will slapping Chris has been the hottest topic of discussion. The actor, who won Best Actor at the Oscars this year for King Richard, slapped the comedian when the latter joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald look at the ceremony.
While the internet has been divided over the subject, Twinkle Khanna joked that Will Smith might have learned the slap lesson from India. In her column for Times of India, the actress-turned-author wrote, “A few years ago during his visit, Smith stated, ‘Travelling to India…has awakened a new understanding of myself, my art and the truths of the world.’ At that point, we didn’t ponder over what he had really discovered, but now it seems rather clear.”
“It must have begun when he went to do his item song in Student of the Year 2 and saw Ananya Panday get a resounding slap from her father in a crucial scene. Apparently, a unit member said that an alarmed Smith also asked why people in India kept threatening each other with, ‘one-tight-slap’. I believe he was reassured that Indians are used to hearing this, especially from their parents, and it’s a sign of affection,” she added.
