The Bollywood Khiladi Akshay Kumar has just gifted his wife the most expensive thing in this month. With skyrocketing prices of onions, Twinkle Khanna has received a pair of ‘onion earrings’ from her hubby and called it the best presentation award.
The Onion Horror
The common retail price of Onion on December 3, 2019, was reported to be Rs 81.9 per kilogram in comparison to Rs 15.87 per kilogram in March 2019. Seemingly in Bengaluru, the price of onion skyrocketed to a whopping Rs 200 per kg due to severe short supply in the market.
Even though prices are believed to come down but it has already led to a lot of turmoil among citizens. In this crisis, Akshay Kumar decided to buy a pair of onion earrings to his wife Twinkle Khanna. The writer (Twinkle), who is often known for her unabashed opinions on different subjects shared the gift on social media.
Akshay Kumar was recently on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote his film Good Newwz with Kareena Kapoor Khan. During the show, he presents a pair of onion earrings to Kareena. Unfortunately, Kareena wasn’t too impressed with them, so Akshay decided to gift Twinkle hoping she would love the mockery.
The most expensive gift
Sharing the picture, Twinkle wrote, “My partner returns from performing at the Kapil Sharma show and says, They were showing this to Kareena, I don’t think she was too impressed, but I knew you would enjoy them so I got them for you.’ Sometimes it’s the smallest things, the silliest things that can touch your heart. #onionearrings #bestpresentaward.” The rising price of onions has become at the center of debate for a few days.

In recent times the most common and essential vegetable was deliberately missing from the menu in homes and restaurants across Bengaluru. Onion price reached Rs 200 per kg in some retail shops in the city after its wholesale rate ranged between Rs 5,500 and Rs 14,000 per quintal. Nearly after a week, the price of the vegetable fell to Rs 60-100 per kg in most of the places. The reason behind this crisis is heavy rains during the harvest that led to the rotting of a good share of the onion production.
