Twinkle Khanna has been known for her witty shorts and political/social sattires - which often stimulate controversies, but also manage to get her point across while spreading a few chuckles in the process.

Mrs. Funnybones, as she's fondly regarded by the media (and often by herself) had a lot to say over a blog written for The Times Of India, as people across the world attempted to fool everyone on the occasion of 1st April (April Fool's Days - in case you didn't know), and it was, as you would expect, filled with sharp-witted sarcastic digs at the current political and social affairs. 

Reminiscing over old instances of fooling her relatives during the special day, the former actress then moved over to subjects ranging from Nirav Modi to Stephen Hawking, reminding fellow Indians how - 'every day is April Fools for us.'

"But the days when Indians celebrated April Fool on a single day are long gone," she wrote. "Just take the last few months."

Taking a subtle, yet direct, dig at the present governments the actress said:

"Then we have the Rs 3,600-crore Shivaji statue, which is now going to be even taller — from 192m to 210m, according to a report in this very paper. Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan, meanwhile, is accusing the BJP government of making the proposed statue shorter. This is literally the height of absurdity."

Twinkle also spoke on CBSE's recent controversial decision to conduct scholar board examinations again, after a massive paper-leak:

"Let’s not forget the lakhs of young students who spent endless nights studying while their parents spent the same amount of time worrying," the actress wrote for the blog. Further adding -  "But just as students finished their papers and were starting to celebrate, the CBSE woke up to paper leaks and announced, “Fooled you! Exam warriors, this doesn’t count! Now, you have to do it all over again!"

Taking another jibe at BJP's political slogan of 'achhe din', she concluded the letter with:

"Around the world, April Fools’ Day comes once a year, but we Indians celebrate it every day, we just call it achhe din."
