Twinkle Khanna has time and again mentioned how she is done with her Bollywood career and how it was a non-starter in the first place. However, Akshay Kumar’s better half seems to have gone back on her words as she launches her production house, Mrs. Funnybones Movies. And her first project — no points for guessing — stars Akshay Kumar.

Other than Akshay, the R Balki film will star Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte in lead roles and will have a special appearance by Amitabh Bachchan. The film has been conceptualised by Twinkle, according to a Mumbai Mirror report.

A source quoted in the report said, “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.” When asked about the film, Akshay said jokingly, “She (Twinkle) is the producer and I will work on a salary.”

More from the world of Entertainment:


It appears Mrs. Funnybones Movies will work both on off-beat fare and mainstream masala. The concepts are still being developed and will be confirmed once they reach fruition. However, this is not the first time that Twinkle has turned producer. She was credited as co-producer on Akshay’s ‘Tees Maar Khan’, ‘Thank You’, ‘Patiala House’ and ‘Holiday: A Soldier is Never Off Duty’. She is known as a column writer and has also written two books — Mrs. Funnybones and The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad. However, this time it seems to be her baby and not just a credit.
