10 times Twinkle Khanna proved to be a sass queen

Twinkle Khanna aka Mrs. Funnybones is known as the Queen of sass in Bollywood. Time and again, she has proved that her sense of humour, spontaneity and wit are unmatched. This Women’s Day, MAG recounts some hilarious comments by the actress-turned-author who has two bestselling novels (Mrs. Funnybones, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad) to her credit.

• On the annoying habit of men, where they just refuse to ever ask for directions, "Our little satellite reached Mars because it was called MOM. If it was called DAD, it would still be circling the Earth, lost, but not willing to ask for directions".

• On finding the silver lining even when there's hardly one, "We may have potholed roads but at least we have many people willing to travel with us on them". Well, looks like she certainly knows how to remain optimistic.

• On her hilarious take on marriage, "After fourteen years of matrimony, I have discovered that hoping your other half telepathically reads your mind only leads to someone wanting to punch the other one in the face".

• “When Akshay gets drunk, he sings songs like Mainu Dila Di Visa Dubai Da”. When asked to reveal three unknown facts about Akki, Twinkle left everyone in splits with her sharp tongue. The others were; “He cries during movies like Aamir” and “He wears checkered pyjamas.”

• “I had decided that if Mela flops, I’ll marry Akshay, and it happened.” Very few actors have the ability to make jokes on themselves and Twinkle nails it in this department.

• “During a film, Aamir had gone up to a director and told him about his thoughts about a shot, but the director didn’t listen to him. So he went behind a rock and I saw him crying.” Let’s just say that if Twinkle were ever to roast anyone on a show, she would own every one!

• When she spoke for everyone! “Botox, unfortunately, does not make you look younger. It just makes you look like you are a part of a secret alien invasion, desperately trying to fit in with the youth.”

• Twinkle showed she isn’t afraid of making political jokes, too, when she trolled Rahul Gandhi just like everyone else. When asked, “What would you do if you woke up as Rahul Gandhi?”, she answered, “I'd look for mummy.”

• “Middle age: Where you have given up worrying about love, are yet to worry about health and it is only work that gives you sleepless nights.” Her take on midlife crisis is admirable, to say the least.

• Twinkle took a jab on all mothers-in-law. “God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers. And the Devil could not be everywhere, so he created mothers-in-law.”
