Highlights

  1. I have no qualms with sitting on books: Twinkle Khanna
  2. Twinkle Khanna is the author of two bestsellers
  3. Twinkle picture was from a photoshoot for Vogue
Twinkle Khanna's latest photoshoot for Vogue India came under the Internet's scrutiny. The actress-turned-author is seen sitting on a pile of books with one of her foot resting on a stool (which Twitter thought was another stack of books). The internet was outraged and condemned her pose but Twinkle soon clarified that her foot is on a stool and not a book. After comments like "such a shame to sit on the books with footwear" flooded the picture she tweeted on Tuesday, Twinkle shared the same picture on Instagram and wrote in caption: "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."
