Twinkle Is Unique in so Many Ways: KJo
Filmmaker Karan Johar says working with his friend and actress-writer-producer Twinkle Khanna was "easy and comfortable".
Karan got the opportunity to work with Twinkle and her husband and star Akshay Kumar when he directed an ad film for Adani Wilmar's Fortune Biryani Classic Basmati Rice.
"Working with Twinkle was just as much fun as I always imagined it would be. She is unique in so many ways and brings such an amazing energy with her to set," Karan said in a statement.
"Collaborating with both Twinkle and Akshay on the same project was also super fun. Given that we have been friends for so many years, working together was very easy and comfortable. I think that translates into the ad as well and I can't wait to work with both of them again," he added.

He will arrange for 70 farmers to travel to Mumbai and receive their bank letters, his spokesperson has said.
The superstar will be taking care of 1,398 farmer loans from Uttar Pradesh amounting to over Rs 4.05 crore.

The farmers will receive their bank letters by Big B at his office here.
When approached, his official spokesperson confirmed: "Yes, Mr Bachchan has cleared the loans of 1398 farmers from Uttar Pradesh. He had earlier paid off the loans of Maharashtra's farmers.

Earlier this year, the "Paa" star, who is in Baroda to accept Sayaji Ratna Award, helped over 350 farmers by paying off their debts and also helped the families of around 44 martyrs of Maharashtra.
Amitabh and his wife Jaya handed over the amount to the farmers and army martyrs families privately in Mumbai a few months ago.
Vicky Kaushal Opens Up About His Struggling Days
Vicky Kaushal, who’s had several hits in 2018 says that he had a tough time getting acting gigs in his struggling days.
“For me, being on the film sets is like being in paradise. There’s a kind of satisfaction when I am on the set. That happiness can’t be described in words. I feel privileged to be able to be present on the film set and to keep working. There was a time when I had really knocked on doors to be on the film set, stood in queues for hours behind 150 people to land a role. There were quite a number of rejections, too. So, now I can’t crib when, at times, I have to wait for even three hours to shoot for my scenes,” he said to Hindustan Times.
“Mid-2016, Raman Raghav 2.0 released and weeks went by when I did not have much to do. I was getting anxious until Love per Square Foot came my way, and then Raazi happened and then it kind of felt better,” adds the actor, who was last seen in Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan.
