Bollywood actress-turned-author, Twinkle Khanna is one sassy muse who knows how to numb and leave a person speechless. The lovely damsel walked down the aisle with a stupendous martial arts expert, a self-made superstar, Akshay Kumar. The lovebirds walked down the aisle on January 7, 2001. It’s been almost 19 long years that the two have been enjoying their marital bliss and have been giving some serious marital goals.
In this showbiz world, there have been some actresses who chose to change their names by adding the last name of their spouses after the wedding. On the contrary, there are others, who stick to their names. One amongst others who fall under the latter category is Twinkle Khanna. In a recent interaction with Hindustan Times, she reveals the reason why. (Checkout: Priyanka Chopra Gets Hilariously Trolled On Pic With Mom-In-Law, Trolls Say She Looks Old As Her)
In the mentioned media interaction when Twinkle was asked which one question sets her off, she said, "Why I didn’t change my last name from Khanna to Kumar. My answer has always been the same- I am married not branded. I am not a tiny company that a big firm like Godrej has taken over and now I have to change my brand name as well". What a sassy answer, no? (You May Also Like: Akshay Kumar Trolls Wifey Twinkle Khanna Over Her Career Switch, Details Inside)
Further, in the same interaction when she was asked if she discusses her books with Akshay, she retorted, “I narrate my stories to him on long car rides, but I don’t think he has read any of my books, as he, well, just doesn’t read.” Sometime back, Akshay revealed his wife’s love for books and was quoted as saying, “I still remember when I was doing films with her before the shot was ready and the lighting was done, she used to just have a book and she used to keep on reading. There was a fruit plate beside her and she used to finish the entire fruit plate and keep on reading. She used to read one novel a day”.
Akshay has always been all-praises for his wife, Twinkle. In an interaction with Filmfare, he had once stated, “Twinkle has not only added to my wardrobe but also to my bank balance. I was a scattered person; she is the one who has put me together. After marriage, she has kind of raised me (Laughs). On a serious note, whenever I’ve broken down, she’s given me emotional support.” (Also Read: Varun Dhawan Reveals His Niece Teaches Him Something New Everyday, Sums Up His 2018 With A Pic)
In another interview with Hindustan Times, he remarked, “Tina (Twinkle) is my best friend. My wife is the best person any man could wish to wake up next to. She holds me up when I’m falling and puts me down when I’m flying. She makes me laugh when I’m sad and moans when I am sitting idle. Tina is everything for me. She is my reality check."

On the other hand, Twinkle had this to say of his hubby Akshay, “He really believes in my capabilities as a person and that gave me a lot of confidence to switch jobs. Even today, if I do something new, he ensures he is a part of it. For instance, I have been writing a weekly column in a newspaper since a year now (the interview was conducted in September 2014), but he still reads all my pieces before I submit them.”
