Twinkle Khanna is a woman who has forever spoken her mind supported by her strength of character. Today as she stands recognized as a witty author, she seems unafraid to publicly voice her failure as an actress. The former actress reportedly said, she 'failed spectacularly as an actor,’ during an event in Mumbai on Wednesday. However, she converted her screen presence eye sore to delectable humour in words on print.
"Eight years later, I came to the conclusion that I had spectacularly failed as an actress. Though this was a bit disheartening, I wasn't shattered, partly because of the way my mother had raised me, and also because I realised that having failed at something didn't mean that I was a failure," reported news agency PTI.
Khanna over the years has grown past the aura of her star husband, Akshay Kumar and has authored two bestsellers in Mrs FunnyBones (a compilation of humour columns) and The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad. She continues to be a celebrated columnist in a national daily, commenting on politics and social life of an Indian. She also runs a successful interior decoration business.
Khanna seemingly regrets basing her career choice on her parent’s success in the entertainment industry. "When I finished my 12th grade, I wanted to become a chartered accountant. But since my parents (Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia) were in the entertainment business, they were keen I follow their footsteps and I did."During her short term career as an actress she featured in films like Jab Pyaar Kissi Se Hota Hai with Salman Khan, Mela with Aamir Khan and Baadshah with Shah Rukh Khan. The author has now setup her own production house, Mrs Funnybones Movies which will roll out its first film, Padman next year featuring her husband Akshay Kumar with Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte as lead.
