She also revealed how her mother Dimple thought Akshay was gay. Yeah ! you read it right. A lot more happened at the new episode of Karan’s talk show which left everyone intrigued.
1. Twinkle Khanna on Levi’s controversy
Twinkle Khanna is known for her no-nonsense statements and that’s what she did when she was asked about the Levi’s ‘unbutton’ controversy. Twinkle cleared that she didn’t want to do it but Akshay insisted. “It was only the top button. The next day, he was receiving his Padma Shri and I got a call from mom saying that police is looking for me because of this act,” she said. She added that people pee on the wall with their “danglers” out but it is she who gets arrested and had to pay Rs. 500 fine to come out on bail.
2. Twinkle Khanna made Rani Mukerji’s career
To those who do not know, the part of Tina in the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was first offered to Twinkle Khanna as she was Karan’s best friend. However, the actor did not like the role and eventually, it went to Rani. And now, it is Rani’s best movie so far. That is why Mrs. Funnybones credits herself for Rani’s career.
3. Twinkle explained why she charted down the medical history of Akshay’s family members before marrying him:
Primarily, you get married to have children. So, you are introducing this genetic strain into your family life. I wanted to know what are the diseases running in his family.
Akshay ‘agreed’. His advice to couples: “Kundli milane se pehle, genetic chart milao“
4. Twinkle Khanna was Karan Johar’s first love
Twinkle and Karan have grown up together. During their schooling, Karan had a crush on Twinkle for a brief period of time. While talking about that, Twinkle said it is only because she used to have a moustache at that point of time and had a testosterone of level 11, which was equal to any man. Karan was left speechless.
5. Twinkle Khanna said Akshay was initially a ‘fling’
This perfect couple of the industry has often given relationship goals to the rest of us. But, it all started as a fling. Twinkle had just got out of a long relationship and was in no mood to commit. She just wanted a fling of 15 days but eventually got married and they have now completed 15 years of blissful marriage.
6. Twinkle Khanna on connection between Mela being a flop and her marriage
Uncanny as it may seem, Twinkle Khanna’s marriage happened because of her flop film, Mela. Yes, the story goes that Akshay wanted to get married to Twinkle but she wasn’t ready as she thought her film will be a hit. However, her film flopped and Akshay got lucky. But wait, it didn’t get over there. Akshay had to persuade Twinkle’s mother.
Twinkle revealed that her mother Dimple Kapadia thought Akshay was a gay. Hence, she advised her to live with him for a year.
Twinkle and Akshay married in 2001 and are parents to two children – daughter Nitara and son Aarav. Twinkle is the highest selling female author of 2015 and her second book The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad is out now. Twinkle and Akshay also spoke about the rapport they share, “the only one thing” they have in common and their career. Twinkle effortlessly handled Karan’s questions during the famous and dreaded Rapid Fire Round to take the hamper home. Towards the end, she even put him in a spot firing from a questionnaire made by her four-year-old daughter Nitara.
The second episode of Koffee With Karan season 5 aired on November 13.
