Speaking about raising Aarav to the young man he is today, Twinkle had written, “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.”

Speaking of how her 18-year-old son, Aarav is all set to embark on a new journey of his life as an adult, Twinkle Khanna had continued, “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.”

A few days ago, Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar had indulged in a fun interactive session, wherein they had answered questions from little kids. When asked about the best chef in the family, Akshay had retorted, “I don’t think you even have to say it. It’s me. She can’t even make an omelette.” Twinkle, however, called Aarav the best chef and had replied, “He (Akshay) is a very good cook. He knows how to fry my brains, boil my blood. If you really want to know the best chef in our family, it’s our son. He can make anything, from rajma to pizzas to the most amazing dessert.” To which, Akshay had nodded and proudly remarked, “He is the best cook, I am the second best and she can only cook stories.”



During the lockdown, Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar’s handsome boy, Aarav Kumar had donned his chef’s hat and baked a chocolate brownie cake with cherry compote for his family. The proud mom, Twinkle had described her 17-year-old boy’s baking skills in the most hilarious way and had captioned the picture as "When I had a bun in the oven, I did not know I was going to push out a future baker. I produced him and seventeen years later he produced this chocolate brownie cake with cherry compote. #ProudMomMoment." When the Indian food columnist of BBC, Maunika Gowardhan had commented on the post, “In the genes” Twinkle had replied, “@cookinacurry not from my side clearly.” (Also Read: Shilpa Shetty Leaves For Shoot, Son, Viaan Looks Upset As He Goes To See Her Off At The Airport)
