'I can never imagine acting again'

Home is where the heart is. And that’s exactly where Twinkle Khanna’s heart is set. As private and closed as a house, one immediately knows why many top ‘A’ listers choose her to design their humble abode.

An interior designer by profession, Twinkle calls her stint with films as a small phase in her life but the minute you get her to talk about interiors, you’ll see an unmistakable twinkle in her eye.

In the City for the launch of Poggn Pohl, the first thing that strikes one about her is her simplicity and down-to-earth demeanour. Daughter of a superstar mother and father and wife of one of the top actors in Bollywood, the successful people in her family has not affected this beautiful lady one bit, for she has carved a niche for herself. Little wonder then, that she gave up a coveted career in Bollywood to become an interior designer. “This is all that I have ever known in my life,” she says of her choice of interior designing.

Though her clientele comprise most of Bollywood, she says she is open to designing for anyone as long as she gels with the person and the house. “Among my clients I find that actors are the most easiest to work,” she says and adds, “they are less fussy in terms of money and designs. They simply give me the keys and give me all the freedom.” Being a celebrity herself she knows exactly what they’re looking for, “All a celebrity wants is the best of the best for their home. After all it’s one place where they spend their most private moments. They generally look for the latest technology, luxury and a lot of entrances to escape the scribes,” she smiles.
  While most of her work is challenging and demands her to source things from across the world, “I have been given a yacht and asked to turn it into a floating restaurant. I am very excited about that but at the same time I also find it very challenging,” she says.  

  Even though she does not miss out on much from the glamourous lifestyle she used to lead, one really wonders if she does miss facing the arc lights. “No way, standing on these six-inch heels and posing for the camera for this long is hard enough. I can never imagine going back to acting again,” she signs off.
