Earlier Twinkle had shared her childhood picture with dad Rajesh. She captioned the post as, "He told my mother that I was the best present she could have ever given him as I entered the world, feet first, on his 31st birthday. He called me Tina Baba, never baby, and though I didn't realize it at that point, my upbringing was different from all the other young girls around me."

Being one of the most successful actors in the Hindi film industry, Rajesh Khanna was known as the first superstar of Indian cinema.
