Twinkle Khanna’s birthday post for Aarav
She wrote in her caption, “All of 21 and technically a grown man! Raising a child is a bit like building a house and designing each room. You do the best you can, and finally, it’s time to hand over the house to its rightful owner who will rearrange the furniture the way they like and pay the bills as well:) Happy birthday my son, and may your unfailing kindness continue bringing a smile to everyone who knows you.”
Twinkle says she funded kids’ education
Last year, Twinkle had said that she had funded her and actor Akshay Kumar‘s children’s education. Apart from son Aarav, they share a daughter, Nitara. On her channel Tweak India, Twinkle had said that she took a Masters course from her own savings.
Twinkle had said, “So I’m using, what would have been my daughters college fund, to fund myself. I’ve always made sure that I’m the one paying for their education. I want them to say that my mother paid for my education, and not just fed me aloo parathas.”
She had added, “I live way below my means. I don’t spend money on anything. My family teases me and asks why am I working, if I am not spending on anything.”
