A laugh riot = Twinkle Khanna ... Wait. Stop. She herself is more than enough to crack you up. That's exactly what she did on the second episode of Koffee With Karan Season 5. Host Karan Johar and Akshay Kumar were found exchanging glances a lot more times than what they had expected.
The star couple, who married in 2001, opened up about the time they were under the impression of enjoying a "fling," the wedding proposal and Dimple Kapadia's (Twinkle's mother) warning about Akshay's sexual orientation. Twinkle, the highest selling female author of 2015, also revealed that she's graded by Akshay ahead of publishing her columns. "Every column I write, he reads it. Then he will decide what should be removed because he is Salman Rushdie and I am what.. Chetan Bhagat? And I am given marks."
Akshay also revealed the one rumour he would like to start about himself - "I'm the next James bond," while Twinkle let out a secret about him: "Akshay cries like a baby." Ask about "the only thing" they have in common - is to sleep by 9 and wake up early. Akshay in turn mentioned what Twinkle actually means when she says: "We need to talk."
At the launch of Twinkle's first book Mrs FunnyBones last year, Akshay confessed that he lived in fear of what his outspoken wife might or might not say in public, especially on shows like Koffee With Karan. In a recent interview with NDTV, when asked about Karan's show Twinkle said: "I have already called him and begged him to delete three lines. So, I hope he does delete those three lines."
Deleted or not, thank god, Karan had to face palm only once and Akshay was found sipping coffee only a little more than usual, courtesy Twinkle.
Akshay even surprised Twinkle with his own rendition of Strangers In The Night, which was followed by a slow-dance.
Twinkle effortlessly handled Karan's questions during the famous and dreaded Rapid Fire Round and won like a boss. Towards the end, she even put him on the spot firing from a questionnaire made by her four-year-old daughter Nitara.
The second episode of Koffee With Karan season 5 aired on November 13. Twinkle made her debut on the Koffee couch with this episode while Akshay had already been on Karan's guest list.
