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
"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..."
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
