Twinkle's first book "Mrs Funnybones: She's Just Like You and a Lot Like Me" was unveiled last evening at a function where filmmaker Karan Johar hosted "Koffee with Karan" rapid fire round with the actress as his special guest.

Replying to Karan's question of whom she wanted to be Akshay's next heroine, Twinkle said, "Jayalalithaa. I will make her into a caped crusader."

In a similar vein, she said Radhe Maa--the self-styled godwoman who is under scanner in a dowry harassment case--should have a reality show.

When asked if she were Ranbir Kapoor, Twinkle said, "I wouldn't speak because Kat (Katrina) has got my tongue." If she were Deepika Padukone, the "Barsaat" actress said she would do every thing as it's "my choice", a reference to Deepika's much-talked-about video.

Twinkle said she would make Akshay the Sports Minister if she were Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"I will look for my mommy," she said when Karan asked her if she were Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi. When Karan asked what will she find in actor Aamir Khan's phones, Twinkle said, "Pictures of naked aliens."

Karan was happy to have a chat with Twinkle seven years after she had refused to come on his show "Koffee With Karan".

When asked to talk about the things one does not know about Akshay, Twinkle said he cries while watching films.

"He cries during movies like Aamir and wears checkered pyjamas every night. On a very rare occasion when he drinks, he sings 'mainu visa dila de dubai da'" she added.

When Karan asked her about banning porn, Twinkle said, "As a mom I am happy, but as a citizen I don't think so (that it is right)."

On her take on section 377, Twinkle said, "You can marry a tree but not the same gender."
