Twinkle Khanna's latest post sheds light on the pain women endure by donning high heels. The actor shared a grayscale picture of herself dressed in her festive attire, notably wearing heels in the image.

Sharing the image she wrote, “High heels are a pain in the posterior and I am still trying to understand how we got conned into putting ourselves regularly through this torturous routine. Heels are empowering only if you mistake altitude for attitude. And if heels were truly powerful, then wouldn’t men be wearing them as well?”

She added, "Jeff Bezos on the cover of Time magazine in Jimmy Choo peep toes. Elon Musk driving his Tesla in Versace stilettos. Putin posing bare-chested with a hunting gun and Manolo spike heels. Which side are you on? Heels or flats? Let me know in the comments below."

Twinkle Khanna takes on various roles. She serves as an author, interior decorator, and film producer. Khanna is renowned for her appearances in films such as Barsaat, Baadshah, and International Khiladi, to mention a few. Subsequently, shifting away from the film industry, she has established her identity as an author and commentator. Her literary creations encompass works like Mrs Funnybones: She's Just Like You and a Lot Like Me, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, and Pyjamas Are Forgiving.

Presently, she is enrolled at the esteemed Goldsmiths, University of London, pursuing a Master's degree in fiction writing. Recently, in the preceding month, she utilised her social media platform to post a video that offered a glimpse into her college experience. In her post, she also reflected on managing her studies at the age of 48.


The video showcases her interactions with friends and her college environment, highlighting her activities and experiences. In her corresponding post, she ponders the aspect of returning to university on the verge of her fiftieth year on Earth.

Over a span of nine months, she has been engaged in attending classes, facing challenges to her sanity, and vigorously progressing towards the completion of her Master's degree. The unexpected willingness to navigate submissions, grades, and countless cups of coffee to concentrate during lectures has been quite a revelation. At times, she jokes that perhaps pursuing a Master's in unconventional life choices would have been a better fit than one in writing. Nonetheless, this pursuit has unveiled an array of novel encounters, including forming connections with an ensemble of extraordinary women who support her through deadlines and inject laughter into lunch breaks.

On January 17, 2001, she entered matrimony with Akshay Kumar, and together they have a son named Aarav and a daughter named Nitara.
