Mrs. Funnybones, aka Twinkle Khanna is on the news for her one statement or the other. She is rocking the Social media with her hilarious tweets, thought-provoking statements and sarcasm. Till now, we have just known Twinkle Khanna as an actress of yesteryears and wife of superstar Akshay Kumar. But she is emerging as an individual with great brains and sharp tongue. And we love this side of Twinkle Khanna. Here are the 5 reasons why we think Twinkle Khanna is one of the smartest actresses of Bollywood.
1. She speaks her mind
Twinkle Khanna doesn’t shy away from saying things as they are. In an industry where each actor is trying too hard to be diplomatic, she is the lady who has got guts to speak her mind without a filter. She keeps it real and raises her voice against the prevalent customs in our society. It is very much visible in the tweet she posted. It said, “Lemonade? When life gives us lemons,we make them into talismans threaded with chillies and hanging on our rear-view mirrors #TheIndianWay.”
2. She is an author
She has published a book called Mrs. Funnybones. It’s a must-read book for anyone who is looking for a little humour, a lot of relatable quotes and a dose of reality. Twinkle Khanna’s book is an ode to every woman who is trying to balance her life perfectly. The book is filled with some memorable lines which show how witty Twinkle Khanna really is. Here is one memorable dialogue of the book.
“Before the world even knew Kimmy existed, we had the famous choreographer Saroj Khan who could certainly balance a tray and a cup of tea on her bottom if she tried, not that she ever did. She used that bit to sway gloriously and teach others to do the same. Just like our politicians, I am bringing this up to prove that anything anyone can do, we Indians could have or have done it earlier and better.”
3. She can make a joke about herself
There are very few people who have the ability to make a joke about themselves. It takes a lot of courage and humour to be hilarious regarding one’s own life. In her book, she stated: Naming me Twinkle was a foolproof way of making sure that I would get teased throughout my life, have immigration officers at various airports stare at my passport and shake with hysterical laughter and strangers stalk me with WhatsApp messages like, ‘Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, I hope you get hit by a car!’ In fact, during the launch of her first book, she told an interviewer, “My other names could have been Sparkle and Sprinkle. We don’t ask my mother for names.”
4. She is sarcastic in good sense
Sarcasm is an art. Not many people know to be sarcastic in the right sense, but Twinkle Khanna is bang on. On the much hyped ritual practice of Karwa Chauth, she tweeted: These days by 40 u could be on the way to your 2nd marriage so what’s the point of fasting-don’t need the men to last that long anymore:)
5. She has good sense of humour
It requires intelligence to be able to make people laugh. During the release of Coldplay’s hymn for the weekend, she noticed the RSS colour behind Chris Martin. And she tweeted: “Waiting for someone to point out how Chris Martin is secretly a member of the RSS ! #HymnForTheWeekend.”
