Twinkle on having a career that lasts


MUMBAI: She started off as an actor, became an entrepreneur and she is now making waves as an author. Twinkle Khanna, famous on social media as Mrs Funnybones, doesn’t regret that she couldn’t score a success story in films. Asked if she finds it ironic that she didn’t receive as much praise for acting as opposed to her writing career, Twinkle said, “Maybe I am better at writing. So I console myself with the fact that I have a career that lasts me a lifetime.” Twinkle, the daughter of veteran actor Dimple Kapadia and the late superstar Rajesh Khanna, starred in films such as Barsaat and Mela but failed to make a lasting impact. She then became an entrepreneur, exploring her interest in interior designing. Her writing skills came to be known through her column in a daily newspaper, and eventually, she took the plunge into writing books. Looking back at her career, she calls her professional journey gratifying. “Considering that I’m here on this platform at this point in time, I think it’s been quite gratifying,” she admitted. Be it her books Mrs Funnybones and The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, her comments on social media or even the columns she writes, Twinkle has always managed to see the funny side of life. “Humour is nothing else but a part of candour. There is nothing that you can ever say which is funny unless it has a nugget of truth in it. All I do is unwrap a little bit conditioning and present it slightly in an incongruent manner,” said Twinkle. Currently, Twinkle is busy with her film production Padman which stars Akshay and Radhika Apte in lead roles. Discussing it, she shared, “Padman is something which is a very important topic and I am just glad to be a part of a project that’s bringing awareness.”
