Modi said he followed his Twitter feed. He enjoyed the creativity as it gave him a perspective into the mindset of the common man. “I follow you (Akshay Kumar) and Twinkle Khanna ji on Twitter. From the way she targets me, I understand there must be peace in your family life,” he said, much to the amusement of Kumar. “All her anger must have been spent on me, and so you must be feeling at peace,” he added.
Soon after the interview, Twinkle Khanna, who goes by the handle mrsfunnybones on Twitter, posted a reply;
I have a rather positive way of looking at this-Not only is the Prime Minister aware that I exist but he actually reads my work 🙂 ? https://t.co/Pkk4tKEVHm

In the interview, Modi also revealed that he never thought he would ever become the prime minister. He always wanted to join the armed forces. “During the 1962 war, I used to see soldiers board the train at Mehsana station and would be inspired by them and their sacrifices,” he said.

On Tuesday, before casting his vote in Ahmedabad, Modi visited his mother Heeraba, also revealed that it was difficult for him to find time for his family. “If I had left my home as Prime Minister, then I would have lived with my family. But I stopped living with them a long time ago and now this is my life. My own mother keeps asking me what can we talk about, it has also become difficult for me to find time for my family.”
The prime minister also discussed his retirement plans.
