"This book is dedicated to Akshay. He is my biggest cheerleader, my greatest support. He is a man who takes more pride in my work than anyone ever has," said Twinkle
Karan Johar's attempt to give actress Alia Bhatt a 'dramatic introduction' at the launch of author Twinkle Khanna's new book backfired in spectacular fashion, after Twinkle intervened
On being a 'plump nerd' and refusing to conform, Twinkle said, "My mother was always trying to put me on a diet and I told her that I didn't want fit into this world, why would I want to fit into a size four dress? , I didn't want to fit in. For all the oddballs and misfits out there, if you follow your own path, you will reach somewhere because you are uniquely doing something that only you can do."
"I think it is a good thing to make films from novels as that will give a film a strong plot, if not anything else," Twinkle told IANS
Author Twinkle Khanna launched her second book The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad on November 15 with husband Akshay Kumar, mother Dimple Kapadia and Karan Johar in tow. She opened up about being called 'Junglee' when someone praised her work and her equation with Karan.
A Murugunantham, inventor of a low cost sanitary napkin machine, inspired one of the chapters in Twinkle Khanna's new book. Here's what else we know about him - he only talks to women (because it takes 30 minutes to explain to men what he does) and he has no idea who Akshay Kumar is. Make that had no idea, he's friends with Twinkle now.
Karan Johar, who acted as master of ceremonies, at Twinkle Khanna's book launch, received a typically Twinkle vote of thanks. "He's like the Rs 100 note, taken for granted until crunch time, when you realise how valuable it is," she said.
"Don't think I was so nervous before giving my first shot in my first film," gulped Alia Bhatt, as well she might have been because she read after the formidable Shabana Azmi. "I was so excited I messaged Twinkle to say I'll bring my bestest English," was how Ranbir Kapoor began his reading.
