Twinkle Khanna was born on 29 December 1974 to famous film personalities of India, Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia. Although she started the professional career with films, her real calling was and is undoubtedly writing.
Mrs FunnyBones, an ordinary householder’s take on events around her, is the first book of Twinkle Khanna. She has a humorous take on the simplest of things but with doses of some hard-hitting ideas. Whatever Twinkle Khanna could not achieve as an actor, she might have more than made up as a writer.
Her writing is satirical with a very shrewd observation and style of penning it.
Twinkle Khanna has become the highest selling Indian female author recently. This is quite a creditable achievement. Mrs Funnybones was extremely well-received by the Indian readers. The book won many rave reviews from most of the Indian media and hence was highly recommended to Indian readers.
Twinkle Khanna, as her debut book suggests, has a sharp intellect and a beautiful use of vocabulary. She best describes what it means to be a part of a particular ecology with all its inherent strengths, flaws and contradictions.
She has a wonderful humour, simple yet impactful insight and good observations. She combines all these rare qualities into quality writing.
Her recent work is a collection of stories called The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad. It has all the making of a very entertaining and a lively read. She is all set to release her new novel Pyjamas are Forgiving this month. Twinkle Khanna is definitely a must read Indian author!
