Author Twinkle Khanna took to Instagram Reels over the weekend to share a glimpse of her new interview with well-known chef Sanjeev Kapoor. They discussed recipes, his career as a cooking show host and more. She also asked him about his rumoured upcoming biopic. When the chef responded by asking in Hindi, “where is Akshay Kumar?” Twinkle showed a fake moustache and said Akshay could put it on and easily “pass off” as Sanjeev.

Twinkle then put on the fake moustache as Sanjeev and said she looked “outstanding.” She then recalled how mother-actor Dimple Kapadia teased her for having a moustache in childhood. She said, “Actually, when I was a kid, my mother used to tease me (since) I had a natural moustache. She used to say ‘much ho to Nathulal jaisi ho, warna na ho (If you have a moustache, it should either be like Nathulal or not be there at all)’.”

In the video posted on YouTube, Twinkle continued to wear the fake moustache as she plated a meal during a cooking competition with Sanjeev. He declared her the winner and broke into laughter as Twinkle finally removed the moustache. Sharing a clip from the interview on Instagram Stories, Twinkle wrote, "Mooch ho to Nathulal jaise'... unless we're talking about the most popular mooch on television. He's a household name, who feels just like a family member, welcoming the legendary Sanjeev Kapoor to The Icons. Watch the full interview on Tweak India's YouTube channel. Drop a (heart emoji) in the comments if you love him as much as we do.”

Twinkle, married to actor Akshay Kumar and shares two children with him – Aarav and Nitara – made her acting debut with ‘Barsaat’ in 1995. After her 2001 film ‘Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega,’ she quit acting. In 2015, Twinkle debuted as an author with ‘Mrs Funnybones.’ She wrote two more books – ‘The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad’ (2017), and ‘Pyjamas Are Forgiving’ (2018).
