Twinkle Khanna's connection to Sudha Murty
In 2021, to mark the second anniversary of her digital platform Tweak India, Twinkle had interviewed Sudha Murty, and the two had discussed their lives and choices. During their talk, Twinkle had said that sometimes, children who come from well-off homes have a certain amount of guilt. She asked Sudha how she ensured that her children remain grounded.
Sudha had also opened up about realising that she can’t rely on anybody else except herself. "You are the best friend to yourself and you’re the worst enemy of yourself too," she had said.
