Holi 2021: Akshay Kumar and daughter Nitara are smeared with colour, Twinkle Khanna keeps it simple but 'spectacular'
Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna shared glimpses of their Holi 2021 celebration with daughter Nitara. See here.
Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna shared glimpses of their low-key, at-home Holi 2021 celebration with their daughter, Nitara. Akshay posted a cute picture of his and Nitara's faces smeared with colour and wrote, "No bigger joy than festivities with those who are a part of you #HoliHappiness #StaySafe #FamilyFun."
Twinkle, meanwhile, chose to ring in Holi with Nitara in a rather unconventional way. The actor-turned-author shared a glimpse into their celebration, which was a simple game of tic-tac-toe, but on the grass, using flowers and stones.
In the video shared by Twinkle on Instagram, Nitara could be seen boasting about her ‘spectacular’ moves, even as the game ends in a draw. “I win, you lose,” she says at the end.
“Celebrating Holi with the simple games of our childhood. The moves may or may not be ‘spectacular’, but in time to come I have a feeling this will one will be a spectacular moment hanging up on the museum walls of our memories. #spectacularmorning #HappyHoli,” Twinkle wrote in her caption.
Earlier in the day, Akshay urged everyone to remain indoors and skip Holi celebrations, as the Covid-19 cases in the country are on the rise. "Do me a favour let’s not play Holi! Celebrate at home, for your safety and the safety of your loved ones. Wishing you all a very Happy Holi," he wrote on Twitter.
Nitara often features in Twinkle’s social media posts. Just last week, she posted a picture with her eight-year-old daughter, along with a lengthy note on ‘perfectly imperfect parenting’.
“Our job is not to give our children perfect childhoods. It is to fill their heads with ideas, to honour their strengths and make them aware, but never underline their weaknesses. It involves loving them madly and throwing a few vegetables down their throats. We need to permanently dedicate a large number of our neurons towards their mosquito bites, bad grades and hurt feelings. And we must do all of this, day after day, without losing sight of everything we are and can be, along with being their mothers. #perfectlyimperfectparenting,” she wrote.
Earlier this month, Twinkle shared a video of Nitara jumping on her bed, as she attempted to work from home. She joked that schools should ‘take these children back’. “If it’s not bad enough that there are neighbours drilling through the wall when I am writing, I also have to contend with gymnastics on my bed and a shaking laptop. Can schools please take these children back before the poor parents resort to drinking all day?” she captioned her post.
