Actress and author Twinkle Khanna wrote a heartfelt note on her social media on Tuesday to wish her son Aarav Kumar on his 18th Birthday. In the note, Twinkle added that Aarav has been acted as her teacher and taught her lessons about optimism and kindness.
Taking to her Instagram handle, Twinkle shared a happy family picture in which Akshay Kumar can be seen flaunting his salt and pepper moustache while his son Aarav, wife Twinkle, daughter Nitara and sister Alka Bhatia can be seen flaunting a fake moustache.
Along with the picture, Twinkle wrote, “Happy 18th birthday Aarav! Here is something I had written for you once and to keep loosening the strings and finally cutting them off this year has not been easy.
All these years you have been as much my teacher as I have been yours. I learned optimism, kindness and wonder from you as I taught you maths, a few manners and how to switch the lights off when you leave the room. But looking at you growing up and listening to you repeatedly tell me how much you are looking forward to your independence, I have started realizing that when you finally leave my home, my world and step into your own, my lights will go off automatically and my world will be filled with a bleak darkness. Though whenever you return for a visit, I will light numerous diyas and pretend that this is not a permanent power failure; we are just celebrating Diwali.
I am already missing the little boy you were but am so proud of the man you have become. #MamaBear #MoustacheMusketeers”.
