About how he helps her, Akshay said on the show, “By just not saying anything to her. Whenever she writes something, try to make her understand, ‘don’t cross the line', touch her feet, make her understand it will cause problems. It takes about two-three hours to make her understand."
When Karan told him that Twinkle still goes ahead and does what she wants, Akshay said that she does ‘mellow’ down her writing still. “If you actually read the copy, that is not so…," he added. Akshay said that he ‘edits’ but with folded hands and a begging stance.
Recently, Twinkle invited quite the social media storm with her piece on The Kashmir Files. Twinkle joked in her Sunday column for The Times Of India about how many filmmakers are rushing to register names of different cities as the titles of their movies, in the hope to emulate the success of Vivek Agnihotri's movie.
