However, Twinkle did feel that she should clear the air about her pose in the photoshoot. In a tweet and Instagram post, the star wife posted a message to all the ‘easily outraged’ and said, “My foot is on a stool and not a book because I don’t want to get dust on the cover.”
Sometimes I get to do this as well- like the Madonna song ‘Strike a pose -Vogue, Vogue Vogue!’ @vogueindia P.S For the easily outraged : My foot is on a stool and not a book because I don’t want to get dust on the cover- aside from that I have no qualms with sitting on books, sleeping next to them or even keeping a pile in the bathroom to read regularly-The God of Wisdom visits you when you read books not worship them – Love and laughter from this bookworm
