So “peacocks don’t have sex, they procreate via tears” is trending and how! And out witty Bollywood celebs can’t hold their laughter and started making jokes about it already.
But for the uninitiated, Justice Mahesh Chandra Sharma, who retired on Wednesday, said in his order, “Why have we declared the peacock as the national bird. Peacock also has qualities. Jo mor hai aajivan brahmachari hai. Ye kabhi bhi morni ke saath sex nahi karta. Iske jo aansoon aate hain, usko chug kar morni garbhavati hoti hai. Mor ka pankh bhi Bhagwan Krishna ne isiliye lagaya.” (The peacock is a life-long celibate. It does not indulge in sex with peahen. The peahen gets impregnated with the tears of the peacock. This is why Lord Krishna used the peacock’s feather)
And ever since this, Twinkle Khanna, known for her witty words has been missing home since she’s Vacationing in France. As soon as she realised about this, she tweeted, “Now this makes me homesick- missing all the fun- Peacocks don’t have sex because jungle main mor nacha, kisne dekha?”

She also went on and retweeted the ‘best joke’ which also interestingly is the line used from her father Rajesh Khanna’s iconic film ‘Amar Prem’. The tweet reads, “What does the peacock say to the peahen when he is not in the mood? “Pushpa, I hate tears” #RajasthanJudge #bramhacharipeacock.”
Sonakshi also went on to express her reaction on Twitter and posted, “Somebody actually said that peacocks dont have sex, they reproduce by drinking tears!!! W O W. mind. Is. Blown. *slowclap* ??…??…

She also concluded by tweeting, “A huge shout out to the @CNNnews18 anchor who had to keep a straight face through that mind-numbing conversation about cows & peacock tears.”
