Twinkle Khanna, the popular Bollywood actress and producer, recently took an auto rickshaw ride with her daughter Nitara in Mumbai. The duo was out for a shopping spree and decided to go traditional when it came to their mode of transport. Twinkle and Nitara were spotted by fans and the media on their auto ride.
There were many eyes of admiration as the Bollywood beauty was seen taking an auto with her four-year old daughter. After the ride, Twinkle took to her social media and posted a picture with the driver and captioned it “Chalo bhaiyya” (let’s go brother!). The picture went viral in no time with netizens expressing how proud they were to see the celebrity mother taking a step towards making a difference to the lives of the auto drivers who ferry people in Mumbai.
Many users felt inspired to be more mindful of small gestures that can bring a smile to someone’s face. In India, auto rickshaws are a viable means for transport for many people. The income generated from driving an auto helps the drivers make ends meet. However, due to the pandemic, auto drivers have suffered immensely with a decrease in work opportunities. In a time like this, Twinkle Khanna’s decision to opt for an auto certainly came as a great example. She showed how with a little compassion and empathy, we can do our bit to help those who are struggling in these tough times.
On a lighter note, it seems that the four-year-old Nitara is already following in her mother’s footsteps. Her enthusiasm in taking the auto was apparent through the pictures shared by the actress. Twinkle Khanna’s move stands as an inspiration to many citizens. It exemplifies how even celebrities can be mindful of small actions and make a difference to the lives of many people in the society.
Overall, what could have just been another regular day for Twinkle Khanna turned out to be something inspiring for many. The actress certainly deserves praise for taking that extra step forward for the auto drivers. We hope to see more such gestures from her and other celebs in the future.
