Sonakshi Sinha fumes at KRK’s Offensive Twitter!

Kamaal R Khan, the Bhoojpuri actor, who came to fame as Bigg Boss 3 contestant is known for seeking undue publicity by his offensive Twitter comments on Bollywood celebrities over the past few months. In his recent remark he attacked Bollywood beauty Sonakshi Sinha.

In his tweet he ridiculed Sonakshi Sinha’s butts and even engaged people to choose from Bollywood actresses like Parineeti Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif having big butts. On Wednesday, the controversial actor in his Twitter said, "Pls RT this if you think tat @SonakshiSinha has biggest butt in Bollywood.(sic)" 


Fumed at the ridiculous tweet of KRK, Sonakshi Sinha in her tweet threatened to give KRK tight slaps and demanded to hang him upside down for disrespecting women. Frightened by Sonakshi Sinha’s lambast, KRK instantly deleted his original tweet and then apologized to the actress.

It may be noted that KRK has a penchant for attacking celebs, especially on social media.

Earlier KRK had attached the loyalty of Bollywood three Khan’s when he tweeted that the Khan trinity- Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman would leave India if Narendra Modi were to become the Prime Minister of India. 


Likewise KRK also tried to seek publicity by hitting at standup comedian Kapil Sharma. However Sharma tightlipped KRK with his provoking tweet: "Don't know who this Kammal Khan is. But soon, his teeth and home will be smashed; can't help it, Punjabi blood."

Fed up with the cheap and demeaning jokes of KRK, adult film and Bollywood actress Sunny Leone has even filled an FIR against KRK at the Versova police station after being continuously harassed by him.

A Bollywood actress on condition of anonymity said, “KRK’s madness is going out of control. It high time Bollywood takes stringent action against the ‘sick’ actor!”
