I failed spectacularly as an Actor: Twinkle Khanna
Twinkle Khanna says she realised that she had failed spectacularly as an actress after spending eight years in Bollywood.
The actor-turned-entrepreneur-turned writer wanted to be a chartered accountant, but since her superstar parents were from the entertainment world, they wanted her to join the industry. She imparted a very valuable lesson in life, that its never too late to realise and pursue your passion!
Twinkle was speaking at a panel discussion along with cricketer Sourav Ganguly, badminton genius P Gopichand amongst many at an event yesterday. "It [the failure] meant that I had the opportunity to try and succeed at a other million things. I moved on and here I am today. Life is like flying a kite. Sometimes you have to hold on tight, sometimes loose. Sometimes your kite can fly effortlessly and at other times no matter what you do, you cannot control it. But even when you're struggling to keep your kite afloat, and the string is cutting into your hand, don't let go. The wind may change once again in your favour, just don't let go," she says.
