Actress-turned-author Twinkle Khanna once revealed that Aamir Khan ‘nearly slapped’ her, when she told him she was ‘thinking about’ her now-husband, Akshay Kumar, on a movie set.
Twinkle and Aamir were seen together in the 2000 film Mela.
During the book launch event of Twinkle Khanna’s ‘Mrs Funnybones’ in 2015, filmmaker Karan Johar asked Aamir Khan:
“What has your experience been with her? Did you ever think she was a good actress?”
As Aamir Khan started to think, he smiled, raised his eyebrows and looked at her.
After listening to Karan Johar’s question, Twinkle Khanna interrupted: “No, no.
“Once he asked me, ‘what are you doing? Why are you behaving like this? You are not even focussing on work’.
“I said, ‘I am thinking about Akshay’. He almost slapped me.
“I still remember we were somewhere outdoors.”
Aamir Khan replied: “Did I? No.”
Twinkle Khanna responded with: “Yeah.”
Aamir Khan then said: “I won’t have reacted that way.”
To which Twinkle Khanna said: “Yeah, you just made a face.”
When Karan asked if Aamir thought that Twinkle was a good actor, he said:
“I thought she was fantastic. All of us have different abilities, I mean that.
“And Twinkle is talented in some of the most amazing activities like insulting people.
“She is an expert in insulting people. All through my life, since I have known her, she has just constantly insulted me.”
