Twinkle made her acting debut with Barsaat in 1995; and after her 2001 film Love Ke Liya Kuch Bhi Karega she quit her acting career. She has often said that she did not enjoy her stint in films and in one episode of Koffee With Karan, she even admitted, ‘I was a terrible actor’.
On her channel Tweak India, Twinkle talked about the importance of being financially independent, and how she had to used her savings to start Tweak, funded her children's education and has recently funded a Masters course for herself. Twinkle said that she got her first salary when she was 17 and that “It was enough to buy laddoos, I think. But I do remember my first significant paycheque and I put it down to buy a car, a silver Opel. I don’t even know if they make that car anymore.”
Twinkle said that she recently took a Masters course from her savings. She said “So I’m using, what would have been my daughters college fund, to fund myself. I’ve always made sure that I’m the one paying for their education. I want them to say that my mother paid for my education, and not just fed me aloo parathas." She added, "I live way below my means. I don’t spend money on anything. My family teases me and asks why am I working, if I am not spending on anything.”
Twinkle made her debut as a writer with Mrs Funnybones in 2015. She followed it up with an anthology of stories titled The Legend Of Lakshmi Prasad, which was released in 2017, and the fiction novel Pyjamas Are Forgiving, which came out the following year.
