Twinkle Khanna, has proved why it was important for her to become an author rather than a good actor. Popularly known as Mrs. Funnybones, Twinkle is famous for her sarcastic yet blunt opinions as well as her witty comments over serious issues. This woman is undoubtedly the Queen of words who is loved for everything she writes or speaks. Twinkle was recently at Vogue’s Women Of Year awards. The actress has won the Opinion Maker Of The Year title (there is no doubt about it). This was followed by a fantastic speech by the actress. Remember the acceptance speech she wrote for Akshay Kumar? Believe us, her own speech at the recent Vogue event won the cake!
Twinkle Khanna picked up each subject that had the power of going viral and guess what? Twinkle’s speech is making everyone go crazy. From bras, botox, to sanitary pads, the actress talked about it all and everyone loved it.
Starting with the GST on sanitary napkins, Twinkle Khanna 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 over flow 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.
The actress then asked women to stop fasting on Karva Chauth. Here’s the reason she gave,
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 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.
Talking about relationships and marriages, Twinkle very cleverly talked about the difference between a mother and a mother-in-law,
God could not be everywhere so he created mothers and the devil could not be everywhere so he created mother-in-laws. Having said that I feel like I am going to be a terrible one.
The woman went on talking about the Botox trend and said,
Botox unfortunately does not make you look younger. It just makes you look like you are a part of a secret alien invasion desperately trying to fit in with the humans.
Taking a hilarious dig on dads, Twinkle said,
Our satellite only reached Mars because it was called mom. I am certain that if it was called dad it would still be circling the Earth, lost but not willing to ask for directions.
With an inspiring end, Twinkle threw some light on how women in India are turning their aprons into capes,
For centuries women have been looking for a cape but have been given an apron and it’s only recently that we have learned how to swing our aprons around. So, let it flutter down our backs and let it take to the skies.
There is no doubt that the woman is a Queen of words. The way she plays with words nobody else can.
