Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of Art of Living, has been in the news for some time now.

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of Art of Living, has been in the news for some time now. Recently, he was in news for suggesting Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani Nobel Peace Prize winner, did not deserve the award.

Twinkle Khanna commented on the controversy over Sri Sri Ravishankar’s comments. The tweet read: “Sri Sri got his noble foot and half his beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic pose that Baba Ramdev perfected a while ago.” #HolyMenandHairyTales

Although the tweet was later deleted.

Though it was just a joke, apparently it hurt feelings of Art of Living fans on Twitter. And they took it offencvely and demanded a ban on Akshay’s upcoming movie.

Darshak Hathi, the International Director of the Art of Living Foundation, also took to twitter and aim at the columnist. “Millions of followers r going 2 boycott #Houseful3 4 hurting the sentiments by inappropriate and ill intended comments f @mrsfunnybones on Sri Sri.”

While Twinkle Khanna replied, “Didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings was meant to be a joke and am old enough to accept an error of judgement on my part.”, he replied: “Error of Judgement or Fear of #BoycottHousefull3. Anyway Being Old & Being wise is different thing.”

Twinkle later tweeted: “Art of living teacher practising Art of intimidation? Didn’t like my joke diss me-drag my husband,boycott etc #Shame”

To this the AOL International Director replied: [email protected] My tweet was in respond to your tweet which has hurt my sentiments. I appreciate that you have gracefully deleted it and @mrsfunnybones It happens when sentiments are hurt. No Hard feeling. Sorry if you r hurt.”
