Twinkle Khanna Was A ‘Spot Boy’ To Her ‘Star Mother’ Dimple Kapadia Before Becoming An Actor
Twinkle Khanna in her latest post has shared an excerpt from a book that has a mention of her relationship with her actor mother, Dimple Kapadia. It also narrated how Twinkle used to carry the luggage of her “star mother” at airports.

Taking to Instagram, Twinkle shared a glimpse of the book titled On Camera Off Camera by Bhavana Somaaya along with the excerpt, with the caption, "Snapshots of the past. This book by noted film critic and editor @bhawanasomaaya is delightful with anecdotes and sometimes an in-depth analysis of the people within their celluloid trappings. This brought back some wonderful memories. #mustread."


The excerpt gave an overview of how the writer met Dimple and her mother at the Mumbai airport in 1994 while waiting for their flight announcement. 

She says Twinkle was weighed down by the heavy load on her shoulders as she sat on a chair. As the writer told her that she should enjoy her freedom until she becomes a star and is surrounded by bodyguards, Twinkle replied, “I can't say about the future but at the moment I'm serving as a spot boy for my star mother.” 

When she asked about why Dimple is carrying so much weight, she replied, “Because my mother doesn't like checking bags, she hates waiting on landing, so here I am playing the coolie for the queen.”

Somaaya claimed that Twinkle's sense of humour is just like her late father, Rajesh Khanna.  



Twinkle's fans were delighted at the story. 

A fan commented, “I can totally picture the whole set-up." A fan even said, “I too hate waiting so my daughter does all the coolie job.” One more fan asked, “nice ! Could you show us what happened next. wanna complete this one.”

Work-wise, Twinkle gave up her Bollywood career and pursued her love for writing without any regrets.
