Khanna had tweeted: "Sri Sri got his nobel foot and half beard stuck in his mouth in a yogic pose that Baba Ramdev perfected a while ago #HolyMenAndHairyTales." But later deleted her comment after facing backlash.

However soon, Darshak Hathi, International Director of the Art of Living Foundation tweeted that Khanna's tweet had hurt the sentiments of Sri Sri's followers and that they would boycott Housefull 3. But soon even Hathi deleted his comment.

Khanna then apologised to the members of the AoL and wrote: "Didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings was meant to be a joke and am old enough to accept an error of judgement on my part."

Hathi too deleted his tweet and said: "My tweet was in response to your tweet which has hurt my sentiments. I appreciate that you have gracefully deleted it. It happens when sentiments are hurt. No Hard feeling. Sorry if you r hurt."
