Recently, actor-turned-writer Twinkle Khanna won the Vogue Opinion Maker Of The Year at the 2017 Vogue Women of The Year Awards. Twinkle Khanna who is personified as beauty with brains, tickled some funny bones at the event as a part of her Thank You speech. She made some wittiest comments on GST and Karwa Chauth which left the audience in a laughter riot.
She said, “We don’t need GST on our sanitary pads. What we need instead is an alarm inside it, not a wide breaking one as it would set us on a different path altogether, but an alarm none the less that warns us of imminent over flow and saves us from the 100 trips we make to the bathroom just to check. Now that’s a product I could not grudge the GST on.”
Furthermore she spoke about the age old Indian tradition Karwa Chauth, “Millions of Indian women fast for their husband’s long life on every Karwa Chauth. My dear friend who just won an award does immortalize this in his movies but I don’t think that our 3033 gods are really listening. Because when the mortality charts show up, there are 147 countries above us where their men outlive our good old Indian dudes. So, ladies stop because it’s clearly not working.”
On commenting about how she can be one terrible mother-in-law, Akshay Kumar’s wife said, “God could not be everywhere so he created mothers and the devil could not be everywhere so he created mother-in-laws. Having said that, I feel like I am going to be a terrible one.”
Commenting about the ongoing trend of Botox, the 42 year old said, “Botox unfortunately does not make you look younger. It just makes you look like you are a part of a secret alien invasion desperately trying to fit in with the humans.”
Speaking about dads, Twinkle made some hilarious remarks. She stated, “Our satellite only reached Mars because it was called mom. I am certain that if it was called dad it would still be circling the Earth, lost but not willing to ask for directions.”
At the end of the speech Twinkle Khanna commented about women of India. She said, “For centuries women have been looking for a cape but have been given an apron and it’s only recently that we have learned how to swing our aprons around. So, let it flutter down our backs and let it take to the skies.”
