Twinkle posted a picture on Instagram showing a notebook with handwritten notes.

“It’s been a packed year! Broke a few bones, finished a writing course from Oxford, shifted from typing to writing by hand, began working on my fourth book, fought with strangers and a few loved ones, let my guard down if not my hair, lost two big deals, made new friends, walked endlessly, lived fearlessly. Pushed against the wall, we alter and grow. #AGlassHalfFullGirl,” she wrote.

Twinkle’s husband, actor Akshay Kumar, on her birthday on December 29, had shared a throwback picture with his wife and joked that he is looking forward to making more questionable life decisions with her. Twinkle last month took to social media to share a joyous moment of dressing up in something she embroidered herself.

Shreya Dhanwanthary: Director, more than co-star, matters more now

She says that her earlier she would be crazy about the idea of sharing screen space with a specific actor but now what mnatters is the director she collaborates with. Shreya’s reply came when we asked which Bollywood superstar she wished to share screen space with.

“The whole desire of who I share screen space with has changed and, for me, what matters the most is which director I am working with. Though I have been working for quite some time, did modelling and ad campaigns, after working with (‘Scam 1992 director) Hansal (Mehta) sir, I just realised how important it is for an actor to grab the opportunity to work with great directors. It really changes perspective towards storytelling, charecter building for my perforamnce and my craft all-over,” Shreya told IANS.

“So, I think I am more bothered about what my part is, in a film or in a web series, rather than who I am paired opposite,” she added.

The web series Mumbai Diaries also features Mohit Raina, Konkona Sen Sharma, and is directed by Nikkhil Advani and Nikhil Gonsalves, and is scheduled to release in March. ‘The Family Man 2’, starring Manoj Bajpayee and Samantha Akkineni, drops on February 12.
