Twinkle Khanna is known for her wit and straight forward attitude. She is not the one to mince words at all. For her, the phrase ‘Pen is mightier than the sword’ is the best suited. Twinkle took to Instagram to share a picture from her latest photoshoot of Vogue India and well, she does look hot in a pyjama suit.
The actor recently won the Vogue Opinion Maker of the Year title and then decided to give a speech to express her gratitude and it was surely a stamp she truly deserved the title. Talking about GST on sanitary pads, she said, “We don’t need GST on our sanitary pads. What we need instead is an alarm inside it, not a wide breaking one as it would set us on a different path altogether, but an alarm none the less that warns us of imminent overflow and saves us from the 100 trips we make to the bathroom just to check. Now that’s a product I could not grudge the GST on.”
She even had a hilarious take on Karva Chauth. “Millions of Indian women fast for their husband’s long life on every Karva Chauth. My dear friend who just won an award does immortalize this in his movies (ref to Karan Johar) but I don’t think that our 3033 gods are really listening. Because when the mortality charts show up, there are 147 countries above us where their men outlive our good old Indian dudes. So ladies stop because It’s clearly not working,” said Khanna.
On the work front, Twinkle Khanna is producing Padman which stars Akshay Kumar and Sonam Kapoor. Directed by R. Balki, the film is inspired by Padma Shri awardee Arunachalam Muruganantham, and will chronicle his journey of finding a way to make cheap, affordable sanitary napkins for women in his village.
Sometimes I get to do this as well- like the Madonna song ‘Strike a pose -Vogue, Vogue Vogue!’ @vogueindia P.S For the easily outraged : My foot is on a stool and not a book because I don’t want to get dust on the cover- aside from that I have no qualms with sitting on books, sleeping next to them or even keeping a pile in the bathroom to read regularly-The God of Wisdom visits you when you read books not worship them – Love and laughter from this bookworm
