Further in the conversation, Akshay talked about his son, Aarav. He shared that his son left home at the mere age of 15 to pursue his higher studies in London. The actor praised his son for being grounded and knowing how to do his laundry, wash utensils and cook for himself. Akshay also added that Aarav never asks for branded clothes, he prefers wearing secondhand clothes. Sharing that his son doesn’t want to act in films, Akshay said:

“My son Aarav is studying at the university in London. He left home at the age of 15. He was always fond of studying and wanted to stay alone. It was his decision to move even though I didn’t want him to go. He does his own laundry, he is a good cook, does the utensils and doesn’t even want to buy expensive clothes. In fact, he goes to a second-hand store, Thrifty, to buy clothes because he doesn’t believe in wastage. We never forced him to do anything; he is interested in fashion, he doesn’t want to be a part of cinema. He came to me and said that I didn’t want to do films. I said this is your life, do what you want to do.”

Akshay Kumar shares he is lucky to marry Twinkle Khanna

When Shikhar teased and asked Akshay Kumar where he prayed to get married to the daughter of superstar, Rajesh Khanna, the actor praised his wife. Akshay married Twinkle in 2001 and welcomed their son, Aarav, in 2002 and then their daughter, Nitara, in 2012. Talking about his marriage to Twinkle, Akshay shared:

“I am lucky to marry superstar Rajesh Khanna’s daughter but I am lucky that she is a lovely wife and a lovely mother. If you get the right partner in life, then your life is perfect. I go to work and she has taken such good care of my children. I am surprised about how my wife looks at life even today. She is 50 now and still goes to study. She has finished her master's and is now doing her PhD. There will be few people like me. When I go to London, I drop my daughter to school, drop my son at the university and finally drop my wife at the university. And then, like an ‘anpadh’, return home and watch cricket all day.”
