Former actor-writer Twinkle Khanna took to social media on Thursday to pay homage to her later father, actor Rajesh Khanna on his death anniversary. The late actor passed away in 2012, aged 69.

Sharing a childhood picture with her father, she wrote: “Still lives on-in my heart and within all the millions who made space for him in theirs..” In the picture, Rajesh is seated down, perhaps in park, as a baby Twinkle leans on his shoulder.


Twinkle has always spoken about her relationship with her dad. After she became the highest-selling female writer of India in 2015, the actor had tweeted to mention how her father always wanted her to be a writer. She had written: “Dad always said I should be a writer -- was proud of my maggot filled poetry -- would’ve been beaming that I got that paper in my hand eventually.”


Incidentally, Twinkle shares her birthday with the later actor. For his birthday last year, she had tweeted an old picture of the star greeting his fans and mentioned how as a child, she would always think that the flowers that would come to their home were actually for her. She had tweeted: “As a toddler, I was convinced that all the truckloads of flowers that would arrive for his birthday were actually for me... #nowandforever.”
