Faceoff between Pritish Nandy and Rakesh Jhunjhunwala on Twitter

Hell broke loose on Saturday when the Faceoff between Rakesh Jhunjhunwala (@jhunjhunwala, Not the real one silly :P)  and Pritish Nandy (@pritishnandy, who was sporting enough to take part) took place.  Some serious issues and some jokes with Pun intended were traded off between the two of them. The official moderator for this faceoff was @netra, @ashumittal voluntered to make a quick poll to know who survived the knockout and @surekhapillai provided some wonderful impromptu commentary. For all those who missed the tweets and the conversation, here is a select few in the Q and A form picked up for your convenience.  This Faceoff was for entertainment purposes only and is not intended to hurt anyone. Take it with the right ‘spirits’ guys! 🙂

@jhunjhunwala

@pritishnandy
I am here. Dont make me fall asleep …………………………………………………….

@jhunjhunwala
You called me FAT.Is this publicity to promote your upcoming film Fatso? ………………………………………

@pritishnandy
My apologies. You are not fat. You are linearly challenged. But you are cool. I like cool. Fatso is cool.

@jhunjhunwala
Everyone is on twitter including Out of work actors.Why then is Mayawati not tweeting.I smell a conspiracy.Is this your fault?

@pritishnandy
No, there’s not enough space on twitter for Mayavati, you and Jayalalitha. You have to get a bigger server.

@jhunjhunwala
You were a Rajya Sabha MP,that’s the upper house.Is there a lift in Parliament from the Lok Sabha to the Rajya Sabha?

@pritishnandy
No, we just strolled across. But since neither LS nor RS worked more than 60 or 70 days a year, we were largely unemployed.

@jhunjhunwala
If you wanna say ‘Cattle Class’ U should probably say it now.Not saying it implies you disrespect cattle.

@pritishnandy
I love cattle. I love all species barring corrupt politicians n celebs who say Yo bro.

@jhunjhunwala
Free porn is available all over the net,still people are searching for the ND Tiwari Sex Tape. Don’t they need a psychiatrist?

@pritishnandy
They want to see the gumption of a 84 year old man who can take on 3 (or was it 4) babes before a camera. I confess I cant.

@jhunjhunwala
Did you know that Pritish Nandy rhymes with ‘Free Dish Handy?’

@pritishnandy
You have missed your true calling, Firaq Gorakhpuri. You are blessed with a sense of rhyming

@jhunjhunwala
The WELL-ness partner of Raat Gayi Baat Gayi is Moksh,3 idiots has a song = ‘All is WELL’.Why are U film guys lovers of WELLS?

@pritishnandy
@jhunjhunwala I grew up watching Citizen Kane by Orson Welles.  …………………………………..

@jhunjhunwala
Our government keeps saying Pakistan must act,Kasab says he came to India to act in films,hmmm,what’s going on?

@pritishnandy
Kasab began as a villain. Is now pretending to be a Marathi manoos. He has learnt his lines well.
His handlers have played their role badly. They are no actors. Just plain jokers.

@jhunjhunwala
Why are Indian filmstars more interested in premiering their films abroad, instead of premiering it first to us,the Indians?

@pritishnandy
Coz Indian films sell almost 3 times more theatre tickets in a year than Hollywood films. Amazing but true

@jhunjhunwala
Your company is called PNC but many Indians urinate on roadsides.So they basically Pee & See.Will the Peeing&Seeing ever stop?

@pritishnandy
Only voyeurs pee n see. Normal folks pee n go. Get your habits checked out, mate. 2 much watching is psychologically damaging.

@jhunjhunwala
I just made you say ‘Pee’. ………………………………… …………………………………..

@pritishnandy
And I shall soon make you pee in your pants, hot shot fake stock broker.

@jhunjhunwala
I’m not for the politics of sport but 10 Pakistani players aren’t picked by the IPL.Their media raises a shitstorm
Why isn’t the same media outraged when they violated the ceasefire at the LOC 10 times alone this month?

@pritishnandy
Simple. Pakistani players are our rivals, not our enemies. The Pakistani army is our enemy.

@jhunjhunwala
Ruchika kills self after being molested.19 years later,case still in high court,Rathore still out on bail.Money+Power=Justice?

@pritishnandy
People power eventually ensures justice. Jessica Lal. Nithari. Rathore. You cant escape once we know what you did last summer.

@jhunjhunwala
This is THE LAST QUESTION:  Hemant Karkare’s jacket can’t be found,is it with you?

@pritishnandy
Karkare’s jacket is hidden by those corrupt people who made money buying such useless jackets. Its our shame.
