Rahul Khanna was att his wittiest best this weekend and it got him a lot of love on social media!

Bollywood actor Rahul Khanna would have never thought his “heartbreak” would become an overnight sizzling topic for Twitter discussion. When Rahul Khanna tweeted about his “breakup”, his fans were all over social media, offering the best remedies to deal with it. But there’s a twist in the tale—the 44-year-old actor was only talking about an airlines.

Rahul took to Twitter on Saturday evening to express his grief over the “break up”. “Breaking up sucks. Especially when you’ve been together for over two decades,” he wrote.

“I gave you my heart but you let me down, then lied & cheated. And that’s why we’re breaking up,” he added.

Fans were quick to offer help. Sample some of these:

Interestingly, the second tweet was alongwith a link to his blog where he explained in detail that he was talking about a break up with British Airways after he lost his luggage in transit on board.

“Remember taking me home to the premiere of my first film? Remember how we entrusted you to take my 80-year-old grandmother on her first ever trip to London? Remember how often I fought to be with you, even when I was offered younger, more glamorous options? I’ve lost track of how many glasses of champagne we shared before you tucked me into bed on our overnighters. I’ve kept every card you’ve ever given me. I even linked my finances with you and have a credit card that bears both our names,” he wrote in an innovative blog about his “relationship with the airways company.

“But, it appears I was more into you than you were into me. I gave you my heart and, in return, you lost my luggage,” he continued.

“You once charmed me with your #VisitMum and #FuelledByLove campaigns and yet, thanks to you, my mum didn’t get her last birthday present because you claim you “misplaced” the suitcase that was carrying it home to her. Anyone else would have instantly dumped you but I trusted in you and stood by you. And, as you know, we’ve taken no less than four trips together, since then. We all carry baggage and perhaps you thought I needed to be relieved of some of mine. You’d lost my bags many times before but somehow you always ended up scrambling around, mumbling a few excuses and eventually returning them to me (although, often, distinctly worse for wear).”

Rahul also offered a parting gift for British Airways. “You claim your motto is: “To Fly. To Serve.” I’d like to recommend a more accurate slogan: “To Fail. To Spurn.” Consider it my parting gift to you,” he signed off.

Rahul Khanna, who has worked in several international projects including Earth (1999), Dil Kabbadi (2008) and Wake Up Sid (2009), was last seen in Fireflies (2013).
