Trust Twinkle Khanna to sprinkle the world with her sense of humour -- on Saturday, she shared a picture on social media which spoke of making the most of troubled times like these, when the world faces a pandemic like coronavirus. In the picture, a lady and a child can be seen lying besides each other and reading their respective books.
Sharing it, she wrote: “Nothing better than lying down next to each other,engrossed in our own book,but still together.The greed to capture this moment of joy,to preserve it for a stage when memory will invariably be shrouded by the cobwebs of time,was overwhelming. #MeAndMine #loveinthetimeofcorona.” While, we can’t see the two people in the frame, it can be guessed that the two are Twinkle and her daughter Nitara. While Twinkle reads a book named ‘An American Marriage’, Nitara’s book cover isn’t visible.
The picture got a lot of love from her many fans and friends. Chiki Sarkar, publisher and founder of Juggernaut Books, wrote: “I hope I have such moments with my boys as they grow up” while another person said “Please keep yourself safe Twinkle, sending heaps of good wishes and prayers :) xoxo @mrsfunnybones”. A fan wrote “cannot agree more” sharing a picture with his child while another said “precious moments”.
Spread of coronavirus in India has had its effects on the film industry too with film releases being the worse hit; Twinkle’s actor husband, Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film Sooryavanshi, which was scheduled to release on March 24, has been postponed indefinitely. An official statement from Rohit Shetty Picturez, said: “We have been as excited as you are to present the film to you and your family, but due to the recent outburst of the COVID – 19 (Coronavirus), we, the makers, have decided to postpone the release of your film Sooryavanshi, keeping in mind the health and safety of our beloved audience...”
A number of Bollywood and Hollywood releases have been postponed; Fast and Furious 9 will now release next year in April, while Vicky Kaushal-starrer Sardar Udham Singh too will release only in January, 2021.
