Mumbai: Author Twinkle Khanna, who has come up with her second book The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, says her husband Akshay Kumar is more proud of her work than anyone ever has been.
- 'He is my greatest support,' said Twinkle Khanna
- 'I am very fortunate to have this man with me,' she added
- 'He takes more pride in my work than anyone ever has,' she said
"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. So, I am very fortunate to have this man with me," Twinkle said at the book launch event on Tuesday evening.
The book launch was moderated by filmmaker Karan Johar, and the guests present at the event included Shabana Azmi, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
Popular as 'Mrs Funnybones' courtesy her column, Twitter handle and book, Twinkle spoke of her life's philosophy and said: "We grow up and we need to confront a society to be fit in. My granny was always mourning about the fact I wear dull, stained jeans or don't brush my hair. My mother always wants me to put me on a diet."
"I would tell her I don't want to fit in this world or in a size 4 dress. For all the oddballs and misfits out there, eventually if you just follow your path, you will reach somewhere no one else has. You are uniquely meant to do something that only you can do," Twinkle added.
Early in her career in films she realised she was meant to do things beyond being in front of the camera. She then explored her creative side and love for interior designing to become an entrepreneur. She released her first book Mrs Funnybones on August 18 last year.
Praising Twinkle, Shabana said: "I really do think that Twinkle is a very special writer. The good thing about her is she writes through a humour and deals with subjects that are considered as taboo."
Twinkle's latest book includes short stories about different fragments of society and is set in different eras.
