Bollywood actor-turned-writer Twinkle Khanna is currently gearing up for the release of her production ‘PadMan’ starring her husband Akshay Kumar and actors Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor.
In a bid to promote their film, Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar have been giving a spree of interviews and attending events. In a latest interaction with a tabloid, Twinkle Khanna spoke about the time she was embarrassed by her son Aarav Bhatia.
Aarav once played an unbelievable prank on his mom Twinkle Khanna’s birthday.
“I don't even like my children watching my movies. And my son is such an a**. He keeps replaying a clip from the film Jaan (1996), where I am kissing around a man's nipple. He made a collage out of this for one of my birthdays. It's sick [laughs]. I don't think my family has been supportive of what you think has been a great career!,” Twinkle Khanna told mid-day.
Recently, Mrs Funnybones lashed out at a netizen who called her a ‘hypocrite’ for allegedly spreading awareness about menstruation only days before ‘Padman’ release.
In January, Twinkle Khanna gave a talk at The Oxford Union, the world's most prestigious debating society. The 43-year-old actor-turned-author addressed the students of the Oxford University and showcased her upcoming production 'Padman'.
Through her address, Twinkle gave an insight into the story of the movie and how it would play an interesting role in tackling taboos and addressing stigma around menstrual hygiene.
'Padman' became the first Indian film to be screened at The Oxford Union.
Based on the life of social entrepreneur and activist Arunachalam Muruganantham, who revolutionised sanitary hygiene in rural India 20 years ago, the film stars Akshay Kumar in the title role.
‘Padman', which also will release on February 9 after Akshay Kumar decided to postpone the film's release from January 25 to avoid box-office clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's controversial film ‘Padmaavat’ starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
