After her successful run as a columnist, Twinkle Khanna soon became one of the best selling authors with her book ‘Mrs Funnybones’ (2015) (inspired from the column), and now news has is that the actress-turned-writer is now going back to films, with her own production house.
Having tried her hand in production as a co-producer for many of her husband’s films, Mumbai Mirror reports how Khanna’s own production house, named Mrs Funnybones Movies will be responsible for R Balki’s next.
In fact the film which will star husband Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte was brainstormed by Khanna herself. “It’s Twinkle’s concept that will be entirely developed by Balki who is writing the script, screenplay and dialogues. Twinkle will not be involved in the writing process. The film goes on the floors in March next year,” a source was reported stating.
Apparently, Khanna has more films in the pipeline for her production house already, as source close to the star went on to say, “There are two kinds of slates being planned for Mrs Funnybones Movies for 2017 – one for mainstream films and the second for off-beat fare. All the films will be presented by Twinkle.”
Talking about working for his wife Kumar expressed in humour, “She (Twinkle) is the producer and I will work on a salary.”
