Bollywood actor Twinkle Khanna said that while she regards herself a feminist, she is not fond of the “icon” label, according to an Indian publication. “I am definitely a feminist, but I find the word icon itself slightly troublesome. Anyone who is put on a pedestal is in a dangerous position because these are very narrow elevated spaces. One little dance, one drink and off you fall. So I am not any kind of an icon. I just do my work, and walk ahead quietly,” she said. Khanna was speaking at the launch of her latest book Pyjamas Are Forgiving , where the event’s host Karan Johar had introduced her as a “feminist icon”. When she was asked about the impact of the global #MeToo movement on her life and work, she revealed that it found its way into the narrative of Pyjamas Are Forgiving. “Everything that happens in the world, kind of impacts in my writing. The #MeToo movement has impacted all of us. It is not just women, but men too as it has made us examine our ingrained behaviour. And it has found its way in my book as well. I do address the fine line between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ as there is a lot of ambiguity about consensual sex.” Pyjamas Are Forgiving follows the female protagonist after she discovers that her ex-husband and his young wife are staying at the same Kerala sanctuary as she is. Twinkle has previously written Mrs Funnybones, a book based on her life, and The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad, a collection of four short stories on feminism.Published in Daily Times, September 10th 2018.
