Indian English writer Chetan Bhagat was one of the judges on reality dance show Nach Baliye recently, and Bollywood actress Twinkle Khanna wasn’t too happy with his performance. She commented about how the quality of judges on the show had dropped and this prompted Bhagat to respond. A Twitter battle ensued:

Bhagat is known for quick wit in his books so he knew he had to respond quickly.

But Twinkle isn’t too bad either. She gave it right back.
it’s a short life-if lucky enough 2 get opportunities to do diverse things then one should @chetan_bhagat write a bestseller abt it too 🙂— Twinkle Khanna (@mrsfunnybones) April 27, 2015
Both of them continued to take digs at each other…

But in the end, Chetan was courteous enough to admit that it was all in good humour.
Ok seriously guys, was just a fun banter with @mrsfunnybones She is fun and has a sense of humour in her tweets. Silly to read more into it.— Chetan Bhagat (@chetan_bhagat) April 27, 2015
