- Twinkle tweeted a photo of hers from a set
- "The chronicles of the middle-aged model," she tweeted
- Twinkle can be seen laughing out loud in the photo
Twinkle Khanna, who never shies away from sharing a laugh over self-directed jokes at her brief acting career, just did something similar on Thursday. The actress-turned-author tweeted a photo of hers from what appears to be an advert shoot and captioned it: "If someone told me in my twenties that I would still find myself on a set two decades later-I would have probably laughed just like this!" Twinkle, who represents a few cosmetic labels, can be seen getting her hair done in a studio while literally LOL-ing with a cuppa in her hand. As if that wasn't enough, she added this in the hashtags: "The chronicles of the middle-aged model." Now, we are LOL-ing.
Here's how Twinkle Khanna explained her "Thursday vibes."

On her Women's Day post, Twinkle poured her heart out over her career changes in a lengthy Instagram post and wrote how she "caved in and joined the family business" and then "Eight years later, I had to face the fact that I had spectacularly failed as an actress."
Ever since I was a little girl, I always had my nose buried in books. Books were my escape, they were my solace. I would run away to have tea with Alice in Wonderland, hop from one ink-stained asteroid to another with the Little Prince. I even reached Mars with Philip K Dick, decades before the Mars Orbiter Mission. When I finished 12th grade, being rather academically inclined, I wanted to study to be an accountant. My parents though were both in the entertainment industry and were keen that I follow in their footsteps. Like many young people I caved in and joined the family business. Eight years later, I had to face the fact that I had spectacularly failed as an actress. I went through a brief period of despair, till I realized that having failed at something did not mean I was a failure, it just meant that I now had the opportunity to try and succeed at myriad other things. I decided to cut my losses not my wrists and went back to working around all the things I had always loved. Somewhere along that path, I found my place in the world of words, a place where I could finally thrive surrounded by my beloved books, both as a reader and now as a writer as well. If my journey has taught me one valuable lesson then it is the importance of being resilient. This is something I try and inculcate in my kids as well. I tell them and perhaps also end up reminding myself that life is just like flying a kite. Sometimes you have to leave it loose, sometimes you have to hold on tight, sometimes your kite will fly effortlessly, sometimes you will not be able to control it and even when you are struggling to keep it afloat and the string is cutting into your hand, don't let go. The wind will change in your favour once again. Just don't let go. #KohlerBoldStories #PechaKucha #WomensDay #Kohler
Twinkle made her Bollywood debut with 1995's Barsaat and then featured in movies like Mela, International Khiladi, Joru Ka Ghulam, Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai and Jodi No.1 among others, which returned only poor responses at the box office. After career switches, the Twinkle Khanna of now is a best-selling author, a columnist, an interior designer, a producer and a Twitter humourist, of course. Twinkle Khanna had also tweeted about her "legendary acting skills" in the past and even told NDTV at some point: "I have no acting skills! You need acting skills to act, not intelligence."
Twinkle Khanna debuted as an author with Mrs Funnybones in 2015 and then released The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad in 2016 and Pyjamas Are Forgiving in 2018.
