As the saying goes, an idle mind is the devil's workshop.

Bollywood denizens are doing all sorts of creative, constructive activities to keep themselves occupied and upbeat.

Some of them are baking while some have moved on to greener pastures.

Be it as Mrs FunnyBones or Brown Girl With a Green Thumb, Twinkle is full of surprise.

In her own words, 'Can't cook, can't dance, can't even make small talk, but give me a tiny piece of land and I will give it so much love that it can't help but love me back'.

She may have played a disastrous cook in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, but Chirpy Chawla is quite the green magician when it comes to her real life garden.

Methi, coriander, tomatoes, you name it.
