Actress and writer Twinkle Khanna accompanied her husband Akshay Kumar to the UK for work recently. The author gave a glimpse of the iconic ‘The Elephant House’ in Edinburgh she walked past. In the picture she posted to Instagram, Twinkle is seen smiling ear to ear as she poses against the famous café that claims to be the “birthplace” of Harry Potter.
She wrote a lengthy note in the caption accompanying the post, dedicated to Potterheads. Twinkle wrote, “The sheer delight of spotting The Elephant House where Rowling (author JK Rowling) would sit to write about her little wizard, Harry Potter.” Adding to the same, Twinkle mentioned that J K Rowling disputes that the cafe is the ‘birthplace’ and rightfully so.
Twinkle shed light about the “birthplace” of a book and wrote, “The birthplace of every book is only within our hearts. We carry it as we walk down streets, brush our teeth, gulp down scrambled eggs, fight with our husbands and children”
She further directed the focus to the place mentioning how it is ‘isolated from the chaos of living’. She called the place a refuge that stays isolated from the chaos of living. Twinkle mentioned that “nothing else matters except processing both loss and joy into material.”
