Twinkle Khanna joked about her dancing skills as she recalled 2010 reports about herself that said she attended parties hosted by Dawood Ibrahim in Dubai.

Twinkle Khanna aka Mrs Funnybones spoke about old allegations that she 'performed a medley of songs for Dawood Ibrahim' in her latest column for The Times of India. Back in 2010, actor Akshay Kumar had denied claims that his wife attended parties hosted by the underworld don in Dubai, terming them as untrue.

Recalling an incident involving herself, Twinkle wrote, "I have even seen my name on a mainstream television channel ticker saying I had performed a medley of songs for Dawood. Considering that even my children think my dancing skills are akin to watching a WWF match between a lone wrestler and gravity, the news channels should have known that Dawood would have chosen more skilled performers. But such is the world of fake news."
