Twinkle Khanna Books
Once when asked about her choices of books, Twinkle Khanna spoke about how books had been an integral part of her life since she was a kid. This actor-turned-author who was sent to boarding at a very early age mentions that books were her friends before she actually started making friends. No wonder she has been creating waves off-camera, with a pen, as she had while in front of the camera. She also heads a design firm, sells exotic candles and is a socialite too
As an actor, she has given movies such as Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai (1998) and Barsaat (1995). However, post quitting the Bollywood spotlight, this multitalented lady has become one of the best-selling authors in the country. With a pen name as intriguing as Mrs Funnybones, Twinkle Khanna books have seen a fair share of success. She has given us three books that showcase her brilliant satirical stories and funny fables. Twinkle Khanna books come in both fictions as well as non-fiction genre. Let us take a look at the books by Twinkle Khanna.
This Twinkle Khanna book is a light read and talks about the life of the author. The book details on the author's life as an entrepreneur, wife of a superstar (Akshay Kumar), daughter of a superstar(Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia), and a mother to her two kids. This book is a page-turner and will keep you smiling, wincing, chuckling and laughing out loud as you turn the pages.
The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad
The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, published in 2016, is a collection of four stories. Themed on feminism, these four stories are "The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad", "Salam, Noni Appa", "If the Weather Permits", and "The Sanitary Man of Sacred Land".
The first story speaks about a village girl who changes her village with her amazing Idea of forming wealth by owning trees. The second story speaks about expressing love and relationships in old age. The third story talks about women’s marriage and how the society, as well as the woman/girl, perceive the institution of marriage. The last story is about how a village man is concerned about the unhygienic condition of sanitary napkins used by his wife and the village girls. In fact, the last story has been adapted into the superhit movie Pad Man which incidentally stars Akshay Kumar and is produced by Twinkle Khanna.
Pyjamas Are Forgiving
An Indian fiction, written by Twinkle Khanna, narrated by the protagonist (Anshu) is a story of a middle-aged woman who is suffering from a sleep disorder. Pyjamas Are Forgiving is a story that sketches Anshu’s 28-day stay in a resort in Kerala and her meeting with her former husband. Not the usual light-hearted read that is seen from Twinkle Khanna, this story has a fair dose of humour and seriousness.
