Actress turned writer Twinkle Khanna says she is not romantic but a practical person.
“I’m not romantic, I’m very practical. There are lots of fish in the sea; so whoever gets struck with your rod, one is as good as another,” Khanna said at the launch of a book The Village Of Pointless Conversation, written by Being Cyrus and Finding Fanny writer Kesri Khambatta.
Asked if her husband, actor Akshay Kumar, was a romantic person or not, she quipped: “I don’t know who Akshay is. Thanks.”
The book is based on material developed while scripting Bollywood film Finding Fanny, post which Khambatta reworked certain parts of it.
Khanna even complimented him that Lee Harper’s book To Kill A Mockingbird could not create the same impression that The Village Of Pointless Conversation created on her. She liked it so much that she felt like “ripping eight chapters off her next book and throwing it in the bin,” she said.
Khanna released her own book Mrs. Funnybones last year.
Asked if she would like to see it adapted into a film, she said: “I think it would be a sort of tragic-comedy; my mother-in-law will commit suicide, because I’ve depicted her as a crazy old bat; so I don’t think we could ever make a movie on that.”
