On Tuesday, Twinkle had shared a glimpse into her ‘birthday break’. She was seen strolling at her resort while enjoying the serene view of the ocean. Along with the video, she had written, “Birthday celebrations have already begun with trapping golden sunlight within the pores of my skin, my hair salty from the hazy blue sea and my heart filled to the brim. A deeply relaxing break at the gorgeous @discoversoneva #birthdaybreak.”

Twinkle made her debut in Bollywood with the 1995 movie Barsaat, also starring Bobby Deol. She went on to star in films like Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai, Baadshah, Chal Mere Bhai, Mela, Jodi No.1, and a few others. But soon she decided to quit acting as she once revealed in an interview that all the spotlight that comes along with being an actor gives her a “bit of a heat stroke”.

An author and columnist now, she has books like Mrs Funnybones, The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, and Pyjamas Are Forgiving to her credit.
