Not many celebrities who turn 50 are content in all domains of life. Our khiladi is one such exception. Be it movies, box-office, personal life, health or even the love from his fans, Akshay Kumar has been blessed with all kinds of happiness. A perfect life is what Akshay is synonymous with.
On the occasion of reaching his half century mark on September 09, Akshay went down to Switzerland with his wife Twinkle Khanna, and two children- son Aarav and daughter Nitara
Speaking to a leading daily, Akhsay spilt many beans.
So, first things first. How does Akshay feel on turning 50?
"Am I allowed to say it feels as good as it did when I turned 21 (laughs)? I’m really enjoying the fact that I have not only reached 50 alive, but also feeling positive about my career, blessed for my health and over the moon with how I’m spending my big 50 on the Swiss Alps with my family."
So, how is he celebrating this 50th birthday?
“This year might be my half century, but I’m actually celebrating by giving my son his dream snowboarding holiday, as much as I know I’ll love it... I’m only doing this for my boy because I know what this kind of adventure with his family will mean to him.”
“Actually, I even remember my 40th in Florida; my wife and I took Aarav to a theme park all day, and when we came home, we were all so knackered that we all fell asleep by 5.30pm on my birthday — no party, no celebration, just unconditional family time. I always want my birthday to be about making my children happy and that’s all I would ever wish for, for they are all I want and need"
What are the resolutions that Akshay is taking on his Big 50?
"I’ve promised my son more adventurous holidays. I’ve promised my wife that I’d chew my food more. I’ve promised my daughter I’ll stay strong so I can carry her up every mountain her brother wants to climb, and I’ve promised my coach that I’m not going give up — turning 50 means 50 reps of everything, apparently."
Speaking of birthday gifts, Toilet: Ek Prem Katha actor added:
"I will never forget the Harley Davidson my wife gifted me, but actually it’s always the family holidays that I cherish the most. You can’t take money or possessions to the grave — only memories and a lifetime of love and happiness. No gift will ever replace the time we spend together.”
Adding to this, Akshay said the most beautiful line about his wife Twinkle:
“My wife could buy me an island, but I’ll still just want to walk on Juhu Beach (in Mumbai) holding her hand — something we do for free whenever we want, but to me that’s what I call magic."
And guess what! On this occasion, Twinkle Khanna herself posted a beautiful video with a beautiful caption that read:
“Happy happy birthday to my best friend, the kindest man in the world, a wonderful father with the best 'dancey face' and Jeez all that hotness on top of it all”
Here’s the video:
Well, first of all, we wish Akshay a very happy belated birthday. We also wish that he continue giving hits after hits in Bollywood, and may he always outlive his age!
