Tina (alias Twinkle Jatin Khanna) born on December 29, 1974, is the wife of Singh King, Akshay Kumar, and is considered to be one of the stylish among star wives. It is not surprising that Twinkle, daughter of superstar Jatin (alias Rajesh Khanna) and style diva, Dimple Kapadia inherited style and class in her genes.
After a moderately successful film career, particularly in Hindi and Telugu films, she gave up films to marry costar Akshay Kumar who was then making his way up the Bollywood ladder.Today the happy couple has a son named Pranav“Acting in films is not something that came to me easily. I did not enjoy it from day one and to lead the life of a film star one has to really be passionate about it,” admits Twinkle who today successfully runs an interior designing firm “Mock-up’s together with partner Gurlein Manchanda. This was a hobby she enjoyed from childhood and taken up once more after she quit films. “I guess I am one of the lucky few who found out where my heart is,’’ she says. She also owns a home decor store ‘White Window’ that sells gifts, silverware, furniture, crockery, glassware, candles, lights, art, linen, jewellery and a special range of home accessories
In Industry circles twinkle is known for her perfect dressing sense, always knowing what looks good on her and never going over the top. While her outfits are usually more tuned for comfort she loves to pair one contemporary accessory with it "to add a bit of colour".‘Simple but chic’ is the style mantra for Twinkle.. a star in her own right, long after she left the silver screen.
