Twinkle Khanna gave a tough time to Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan by commenting on his height or the lack of it.

While releasing her first book Ms Funny Bones on Tuesday, Twinkle Khanna described Aamir Khan as a terrific performer and a short man.

Twinkle Khanna and Aamir Khan came together for Mela, which did not click, but have remained close friends.

She also offered an anecdote to share how much Aamir Khan had impressed her with his short stature, reports NDTV.

During Twinkle Khannas last pregnancy, as she went into the labour, to make her feel comfortable, the doctor asked her to imagine a scene involving someone she likes.

Twinkle Khanna says she took the advise seriously and started shrieking about Aamir, and his height.

Twinkle Khanna, who has built quite a reputation for her acerbic humour, was unsparing on even the people close to her, including husband Akshay Kumar.

Aamir Khan, who attended the book release function with Karan Johar, said Twinkle was exceptionally talented especially when it came to insulting people.

For the record Aamir Khan stands below 5 feet 7 inches, but manages to divert attention from his stature on the sheer strength of his performance.
