It is time to bid farewell to our readers after having enjoyed 6 years online. Following a few changes in 2015, the Hindi Cinema Blog archives will remain available but no new contributions will be added. Although we have cherished the readership some of our posts generated and are deeply thankful to our readers and supporters, contributors have found inspiring ventures to move on to.
For our last post we decided to ring up our Mumbai correspondent when we heard Twinkle Khanna was about to release her first book: Mrs. Funnybones. It is with this last post that we thank all of you profusely for reading the Hindi Cinema Blog and wish you a great movie journey:
Many of you in India might be familiar with Twinkle Khanna as a popular columnist in featured in the Times of India and DNA. Others abroad will remember her from movies like Baarsat, Baadshah or acting alongside her husband, Akshay Kumar, in Thank You and Holiday.
Today Crossword Bookstore held the book launch of her first opus, Mrs. Funnybones (She's just like you and a lot like me).
Twinkle arrived accompanied by renowned journalist Pritish Nandy, who was in charge of her interview. The session was followed by a Q&A and book signing by the author.
A mother, a woman and a fun-filled writer, Twinkle Khanna came across during her launch as light-hearted and no-nonsense as she does in her columns. She proved once again that she is a voice of opinion to be listened to and she drew much praise from her interviewer and the audience.
"Laughter and love" she signed on each fan's book copy and such we wish her too, in hopes that she will continue to make Indians reflect and laugh.
