Akshay Kumar had tied the knot with Twinkle Khanna in 2001 and the two are blessed with two children, son, Aarav and daughter, Nitara. Akshay Kumar is a family man and loves to spend his free time with his wife and children. For Akshay, the happiness of his family is a priority and every award and recognition are secondary. Talking about his wife, Twinkle, Akshay in an interview with the Hindustan Times had revealed that she helps him in selecting the scripts. He was quoted as saying, “Yes, my wife has been a very big help in my career. It’s not that I have to discuss every script with her before I give it my nod, but she talks to me and I remember (those) things. She told me once, ‘Koi zor zabardasti nahi hai, jo achha lage karo’ (You are not being forced, do what you feel is right).”
Akshay Kumar loves to hang out with his son, Aarav and considers him his science teacher. Akshay was once quoted as saying, “We don’t discuss, he tells me things. It’s a different learning experience. My son is like my science teacher.” Talking about not sharing many pictures of their daughter, Nitara on social media, Akshay had once stated, “Mere bachchon ke bahut kam (paparazzi) photos aatein hai, but honestly speaking, I don’t like it [kids getting photographed] at all. That’s why I try and hide my children as much as possible.”
Akshay Kumar had further added, “So, I will never bring my kids in front of the camera on purpose. I don’t want to turn them into products of sorts. But if we go out and photographers happen to spot us, they can click pictures.” (Suggested Read: Akshay Kumar Reacts On Aarav Getting Trolled On Social Media, Reveals Why Nitara Refuses To Step Out)
