Twinkle Khanna who has acted in films like ‘Baadshah’, ‘International Khiladi’, ‘Joru Ka Ghulam’ and more feels that she had spectacularly failed as an actress. The actress turned author wanted to pursue education to be a chartered accountant, however, as her parents, Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia belonged to film industry, they also wanted her to join it. “When you don’t take success very seriously it’s easier to shrug off failure. When I finished my 12th grade, I wanted to become a chartered accountant. But since my parents were in the entertainment business, they were keen I follow their footsteps and I did,” she said at an event.
But eight years later she realised that having failed at something didn’t mean that she was a failure. She said, “Eight years later, I came to the conclusion that I had spectacularly failed as an actress. Though this was a bit disheartening, I wasn’t shattered, partly because of the way my mother had raised me, and also because I realised that having failed at something didn’t mean that I was a failure.” She added, “It (the failure) meant that I now had the opportunity to try and succeed at million other 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.”
