Twinkle wrote in the caption of the post, “An apocryphal story around my childhood says that then as a little toy at Cadbury Academy, I chased a Balloon Man through the nursery gate. Seen, still following the balloonist, and brought back home by my aunt’s hairdresser, Lucy. It seems a bit unbelievable. How could I have walked so far? What are the chances of Lucy seeing me on the street?”
The video was recorded when Twinkle had gone out to fetch balloons for her daughter Nitara’s birthday. She turned 10 years old. “But memory is a strange thing. Because I’ve heard it so many times, regardless of what actually happened, I can see myself outside a specialty shop on Linking Road. I have an image in my head of walking down that particular sidewalk and yes, I can see a balloon man ahead of me. I hope no one follows me on the day I get these balloons for my daughter’s birthday,” she also said. The former actor further urged his fans to share their favorite childhood memories in the comments section.
