Mumbai: Actress-turned-writer Twinkle Khanna said that that her husband, actor Akshay Kumar wants her to be "calm and collected" like the character in her book Mrs Funnybones.
"The man of the house (Akshay) says I really wish you were this woman in the book who's always so calm and collected. And I tell him I probably have to join Baba Ramdev and do 4,000 'Kapalbhatis' a day to be that calm. So I'm not really as cool and collected as Mrs Funnybones, but she is the woman I want to be," said Twinkle.
Twinkle also said that Akshay played a major role in getting her writing recognized. The actress had written an article regarding the AIB Roast controversy for a newspaper, which was approved by Akshay before it got published. According to her, this article is what fetched her recognition.
"I told my husband, 'I think I wrote this well', but he said, 'No let me see and I'll decide'. I said, 'Okay you decide, fine'. I fell asleep that night and the next day it was everywhere. So that did work well," she said. (Also Read: Twinkle Khanna on Karva Chauth: Sent Satellite to Mars But Look at Moon )
"I've been writing for a year before that but that was the piece that got me noticed. Did I think that I would get this reaction? No, I just wrote it, you don't know where it's going to go and how, and I just sent it off," added Twinkle.
Mrs Funnybones, which is Twinkle's first book, has topped a bookstore chain's non-fiction list.
