Mumbai, Sep 14 : Actor Akshay Kumar says he got ignored by a fan, who wanted an autograph of his actor-turned-writer wife Twinkle Khanna for her debut book “Mrs Funnybones: She’s Just Like You and a Lot Like Me”. But he’s proud of it!
The “Namastey London” actor took to Twitter, where he shared a photograph of himself and his wife sitting in a book store. In the image, Akshay is seen sitting on a sofa and his wife Twinkle is seen signing a copy of her bestseller for a fan.
“Ignored by a fan who wanted an autograph of @mrsfunnybones…happens when your wife is a bestselling author! #proud,” Akshay tweeted on Monday.
Sharing the same image, Twinkle quipped: “Where the big star happily looks on at the little one that twinkles – sorry reposted – couldn’t resist the poor pun :)”
