In the latest episode of Koffee With Karan, Akshay Kumar reveals how he navigates his wife Twinkle Khanna’s potentially controversial writing.
As Akshay Kumar made another appearance on Koffee With Karan, host Karan Johar asked him how he supports his wife Twinkle Khanna’s work and career. Twinkle used to be an actor, but she took a huge career leap when she turned to becoming a novelist and columnist. Akshay said he supports her, but asks her to downplay her often controversial stance on political, social issues.

On how he helps her, Akshay said on the show, “Just by saying nothing to her. Whenever she writes something, try to explain to her, ‘don’t cross the border’, touch her feet, explain to her that this will cause problems. It takes about two-three hours to understand him.”
When Karan tells her that Twinkle still goes ahead and does whatever she wants, Akshay said that she still ‘mellows’ her writing. He said, “If you actually read the copy, it is not….” Akshay said that he ‘edits’ but with folded hands and begging for more.
Recently, Twinkle invited quite a social media storm with her article on The Kashmir Files. Twinkle joked in her Sunday column for the Times of India that how many filmmakers are rushing to enter the names of different cities as the titles of their films, hoping to emulate the success of Vivek Agnihotri’s film.
Akshay appeared in the third episode of Koffee With Karan season 7 alongside Samantha Ruth Prabhu. The new season has so far hosted Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor. Other upcoming shows in the show are Ananya Panday, Vijay Deverakonda, Kriti Sanon, Tiger Shroff, Kiara Advani and Shahid Kapoor.
