Mumbai: Actor-turned-writer Twinkle Khanna, whose column ‘Mrs Funnybones’ has become the talk of the town, says her husband Akshay Kumar is her editor.
Talking to reporters at the book launch of her first book “Mrs Funnybones: She’s Just Like You and a Lot Like Me” here, Twinkle said she had love for writing since childhood. “I have been writing for two years now. You all discovered it late… I had this since childhood,” Twinkle said. The 40-year-old actress’s mother Dimple Kapadia, Kumar and close friends Aamir Khan and Karan Johar were present on the occasion. The other star guests were Jaya Bachchan, Susanne Roshan and Sonali Bendre.
“Akshay’s input is to remove words.. He is my editor,” she said. Twinkle’s column “Mrs Funnybones” is penned with a tongue-in-cheek manner where she comments on the latest happenings in the society and in general. Displaying her witty side on the stage, the “Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai” actress said her husband, who is known for good comic timing in movies, gets paid in million for it while when it comes to her she gets peanuts.
“My hubby (husband) does comedy and he gets paid in million. With my comedy, I can’t even buy chocolates. If I will need money I will anchor an award show,” Twinkle said. When asked about the latest trend in the industry to turn books into films, she said, “To make films based on book is not new in Bollywood. I don’t want to name any director.” The actress also said that whenever she names any of her friends in her columns, she makes sure to call up them and inform.
