"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
"The man of the house (Akshay) says I really wish you were this woman in the book who's always so calm and collected. I'm not really as cool and collected as Mrs Funnybones, but she is the woman I want to be," said Twinkle
Twinkle said, "Mrs. Funnybones is about how modern woman looks in India and how India looks back at her. We live in a world where we have sent a satellite to Mars, but we are looking at the moon and praying for our husband's long life"
Censoring Dimple Kapadia proved difficult. She recounted, "I had gone to Tina and Akshay's house for khichra when they were newly married and it was just me, Akshay and Tina. So after having the khichra, Akshay said "arre bhai ek soda leke aao thoda sa kali mirch daal ke." So what does my brilliant daughter do with me sitting there? She goes..."
"Twinkle is talented in some of the most amazing activities. She is very talented in insulting people. She has constantly been insulting me, great fun working with her," Aamir quipped
Given that it was an evening to celebrate Twinkle's now fabled quick wit and ready tongue, the repartee that each Bollywood star bounced off the other was cheeky, to say the least. So cheeky, in fact, that the air was quite blue with insults
