The Best Of Birthday Girl Twinkle Khanna’s Brutal Wit And Sarcasm
Age is doing wonders to Twinkle Khanna’s sarcasm and wit. Happy Birthday!
Twinkle Khanna has a way with words, but they land her in trouble ever so often. Does the birthday girl look like she gives a damn? Hell no! So here’s a collection of her most brutal comments, sharpest jokes and classic self-mockery, that score a big ten on the sarcasm meter, and we love her for it, don’t you?
Akshay and Twinkle got married in 2001. The couple share two children Aarav and Nitara.
Twinkle shares her birthday with her late father, superstar Rajesh Khanna.
After starting her career as an actor with films like Barsaat and Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai, Twinkle only did a few more movies, following which she took up interior designing. She is now a successful entrepreneur, an author and columnist.
She also ventured into film production with Padman, which features Akshay. Directed by R. Balki, Padman, released on 26 January, and is based on Arunachalam Muruganantham, who created a revolution in the field of affordable menstrual hygiene.
The film is based on a short story from Twinkle's book The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad. The story is inspired from the life of Muruganantham, a Tamil Nadu-based social activist who revolutionised the concept of menstrual hygiene in rural India by creating a low-cost sanitary napkins machine. The book has already sold 100,000 copies.
Twinkle, who also featured on BBC World to talk about menstrual hygiene and sanitation, says “awareness, education and access to sanitary pads are the three things that would help in putting an end to period taboos”.
"... To what I see as nothing less than a tragedy that 20 per cent of our school girls drop out of school when they start menstruating because they are unable to get access to sanitary pads or menstrual cups and have to rely on leaking pieces of cloth," she said.
