When Mrs. Funnybones revealed on Koffee With Karan that KJo once admitted his love for her, things became simpler. The director, in truth, also later admitted that Twinkle was “the only woman” he had ever been in love with. Yet Twinkle rejected Karan’s advances and married Bollywood’s Khiladi, Akshay Kumar.
