Happy Birthday Rajesh Khanna: Twinkle pens emotional post for father on their birthday

Twinkle Khanna has posted an emotional post for her father Rajesh Khanna on their birthday and said she saw his reflection in her and her sister

Former actress Twinkle Khanna who has a huge fan following, courtesy all her sarcastic posts on social media, took a break from her witty remark today. Mrs Funnybones posted a rather emotional post on Instagram to remember her father- the first superstar of Bollywood, Rajesh Khanna. She wrote that she saw reflection of her father in herself, in her sister (Rinki Khanna) and her son Aarav.

Interestingly, Twinkle also celebrates her birthday today and she turned 42. Twinkle Khanna has always been a daddy’s girl. Right since she made her Bollywood debut to the time when she got married to Akshay Kumar, her bond remained strong with her dad.

Earlier this year when actor Naseeruddin Shah called Rajesh Khanna an over-hyped actor, Twinkle gave it back to him. On the micro-blogging website

Twitter, Twinkle had said that if nothing people should respect the deceased.


Twinkle wrote: I see you-in my reflection off the back of a gleaming spoon, in a gesture my sister makes , in the arch of my son’s eyebrows- I still see you.. #happybirthdaytous
