Amidst the election season, Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared a light moment with Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar. Sharing anecdotes from the pages of his life, PM Modi in a candid conversation talked about the social media in today's age. When the 'Khiladi' actor asked him if he regularly reads his social media feed considering he is really active, the Prime Minister said, " Yes, I read it and I also get a lot of information about the country from it".
"I also look at yours and Twinkle Ji's profile too and sometimes I feel that the wrath she (Twinkle Khanna) unleashes on me on Twitter, because of that there must be a lot of peace in your marriage as the entire anger would just come out on me", he hilariously went on to say.
Later in the interview, PM Modi also reveals that he actually knew Twinkle Khanna's grandfather who had come to Gujarat for their 'Chaas' campaign.
Akshay Kumar also asked PM Modi about his "fashion statement" and particularly about his half sleeves style. To which the Prime Minister set the record straight.
"You asked a very good question. Just like how my image as a strict and angry person is created similarly there is another image about my clothes. Now, the truth is that I used to carry a small bag and travel a lot. And till the time I became the Chief Minister, I used to wash my own clothes. So, I thought that if I wear long sleeves then the washing will take more efforts and time. Plus it would take up more space in my bag. Therefore, I trimmed it myself".
"Because of poverty, I used to feel inferior. We could not iron own clothes so what I used to do was take a bowl and fill it up with coal and then used it to press clothes. I had no shoes. Once one of my uncle got me white canvas shoes. In few days, they became dirty. So, every day after school, I used to stay back in class, collect chalk pieces and used it to polish my shoes", he added.
