Author and former actress Twinkle Khanna on Sunday took a stroll down memory lane and shared a childhood picture with her late aunt Simple Kapadia and sister Rinke Khanna. In the picture, Twinkle and Rinke look super cute while posing with Simple Kapadia, who’s the younger sister of veteran actor Dimple Kapadia.
Twinkle’s post garnered a lot of love from social media users. “Beautiful pic,” a netizen commented. “Hahha…such cute photo,” another one wrote.
Along with the throwback image, the former actor expressed her thoughts on nostalgia. “Nostalgia is akin to the red and white Phantom cigarettes of our childhood. Like all sugary treats, it may prove detrimental as a daily habit, but it could provide occasional respite. A way of transporting ourselves to a time when we felt loved and safe, and sometimes, oh so cool, as we inhaled the minty smell of a candy-stick held between our lips. Nostalgia reminds us of not just how we lived, but what it was like to thrive,” she captioned the post.
For the unversed, Simple made her acting debut with ‘Anurodh’, opposite her brother-in-law and late superstar Rajesh Khanna. Unfortunately, in 2009, Simple breathed her last after her long battle with cancer. She is survived by son Karan Kapadia.
Earlier, Twinkle posted BTS moments of Rajesh Khanna from the shoot of his hit song ‘Suno kaho kaha suna’ from 1974 film Aap Ki Kasam on his death anniversary. Along with it, she wrote: “I have his eyes, my son has his smile and the world has pieces of him embedded in their hearts. He still lives on,” Twinkle captioned the post.
In the video shared by Twinkle, Rajesh Khanna can seen telling a reporter that he loved his work, even if it meant going through the same process of running around tress (or rocks, as in this particular case) again and again.The video is part of a BBC documentary titled Bombay Superstar.
