Twinkle Khanna would have become a forgettable 90s heroines like many others. But she got a new lease of life publically after she started writing newspaper columns and joined Twitter. Her witty replies made her a huge sensation. In no time, she came up with two books, both of which turned bestsellers. Her brand of humour has found a lot of takers. Hence, one expected fireworks when she appeared on stage at ‘Vogue Women of The Year Awards 2017’. And as expected, she brought the house down.
Twinkle Khanna won ‘Vogue Opinion Maker of the Year’ and as a part of her thank you speech, she shared things that she learnt in the last decade. She began by saying why women do not need GST on sanitary napkins. Instead, she said that there should be an alarm inside the napkins that would warn women of imminent flow and save them from making hundreds of trips to the bathroom just to check.
Then she reasoned why Indian women should stop fasting on Karva Chauth to extend their husband’s life expectancy. She said that she has been the worldwide mortality charts and there are 147 countries above India where men live longer. Hence, Karva Chauth should be stopped as it’s clearly not working. Here, she even took a dig at Karan Johar for immortalizing Karva Chauth in his films.
Then she surprised everyone by saying that she’ll be a terrible mother-in-law. Her exact words were, “God could not be everywhere so he created mothers and the devil could not be everywhere so he created mother-in-laws.”
On Botox, Twinkle Khanna said that Botox doesn’t make one look younger. It just makes one look like they are a part of a secret alien invasion desperately trying to fit in with the humans.
Next on her target were fathers. Mrs Funny Bones said that our satellite reached Mars only because it was called ‘Mom’ and that if it was called ‘Dad’, it would have been still circling the earth, lost but not willing to ask for directions.
Twinkle Khanna ended the speech by remarking that women of India are turning their aprons into capes.
Surely, this is one of the unforgettable victory speeches that would be remembered for years to come!
