Twinkle Khanna recently sat for a chat with Sudha Murty, Chairperson of the Infosys Foundation and discussed many things. At one point during their chat, Twinkle Khanna said that sometimes children who come from well-off homes have a certain amount of guilt. She then asked Sudha Murty how she ensured that her children remained grounded.
Answering her question, Sudha Murty said that she once took her son, Rohan, to meet some tribes people when he was 13-years old, and told him that many of them are perhaps brighter than him. But because he has been born into privilege, he should never take it for granted.
Twinkle agreed with what she said and shared what she once told her son Aarav when he asked her why he's rich and others aren't. She said, "Even with my children, at least I try. One day, my son asked, 'Why do I have all these things and those people don't?' And I told him, 'When you're born with a silver spoon in your mouth, it's your responsibility to use that. Even if it's not a silver spoon, maybe it's a plastic spoon. But if you have any spoon of any sort, you scoop up some porridge and give it to someone who doesn't have it'."

She added, "And I think from that day, I've also seen him looking at life differently and also realising that privilege is a platform which can be used to help other people." The video was uploaded on the Tweak India YouTube channel on Thursday.
Coming to Aarav, he is one of the most popular star kids of Bollywood. Twinkle and Akshay Kumar also have a daughter Nitara. She recently turned nine years old. Sharing a photo of her daughter, Twinkle wrote, "Nine years of having this little girl with a serious face and a wicked sense of humour in my life. The other day after I greeted the pavement with my bottom as usual, she giggled, 'Mama, you say I am clumsy when I drop my pencil but you keep dropping your whole body down.' May she grow up holding laughter in her eyes forever. #HappyBirthday." Twinkle and Akshay rarely share the pictures of their children on social media.
