It has not even been 24 hours since Bollywood’s superstar couple Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar’s interview on chat show Koffee With Karan was aired, and it has already become the talk of the day.
The couple who have now been together for over 15 years, shared some candid moment with Karan Johar and revealed some previously unknown events about their life.
One of those revelations was about Akshay’s mother-in-law Dimple Kapadia and how she didn’t want her daughter Twinkle to marry him.
While incidences of parents not wanting their kids to marry someone is very common, the reason for which Dimple didn’t want Twinkle to marry Akshay is what has now raised many eyebrows.
According to the Twinkle, Dimple initially did not give a nod to their wedding as her ‘journo friend’ had alleged that Akshay was gay.
Twinkle revealed that she almost fainted when her mother told her that her friend, who was doing a piece on gays, had suggested that Akshay was gay and thus didn’t want Twinkle to marry her.
The incident had taken place when the movie ‘Mela’ had bombed and Akshay had promptly asked Twinkle to marry her and she had agreed to it.
Twinkle revealed that the talk had taken place at a massage parlor where Akshay had apparently gone to give one of her friends an acupuncture massage and busy with his session.
Though Twinkle was quick to add that her mother didn’t dismiss Akshay completely and asked her to live together with Akshay for a year and then decide if they want to get hitched.
Twinkle also said that she followed her mother’s suggestion and only got married after living with him for some time.
What is more Mrs. Funny Bones also revealed that she made a list of pros and cons of marrying Akshay before tying the knot.
In this list, she took notes on his family lineage and explored their health issues, before finally agreeing to tie the knot.
In response, Akshay said that in the beginning he was pretty upset about Twinkle’s methods, but said that he ultimately found it much better thing to do than matching their kundalis (horoscopes).
