Twinkle wrote in the caption of the post, “An apocryphal tale around my childhood states that as a tiny toy in what was then called Cadbury Academy, I followed a balloon man out of the gate of the nursery. I was spotted on Linking Road, still following the balloon man, by my aunt’s hairdresser, Lucy and brought back home. It seems slightly unbelievable. How could I walk so much? What are the chances of Lucy seeing me on the street?”
The video was recorded when Twinkle had gone out to bring balloons for her daughter, Nitara’s birthday. She turned 10. “But memory is a strange thing. Because I have heard this so many times, regardless of what really happened, I can see myself outside a particular shop on Linking Road. I have an image in my head of walking on that particular pavement and yes, I can see a wiry balloon man striding ahead of me. I hope the day I got these balloons for my daighter’s birthday, no one followed me,” she also added. The former actor further urged her fans to share their favourite childhood memories in the comment section.
