Akshay Kumar Thanks Rajesh Khanna For Giving Him, His 'Fascinating Daughter', On Their Birthday

Today, on December 29, 2018, it would have been Rajesh Khanna’s 76th birthday had he been alive today. But sadly, the "original superstar" of Indian cinema left the world in the year 2012. Having acted in 106 solo hero films, Rajesh Khanna is still regarded as an actor who is incomparable. And today, it’s his birthday. And guess who shares his birthday? Well, it’s none other than his own daughter, Twinkle Khanna! (You May Like: Deepika Padukone And Ranveer Singh Attend A Friend's Wedding, Look Like A Perfect Couple)

Twinkle Khanna took to her official Instagram handle and shared the following picture of her father. Remembering him, she captioned the pic as, “As a toddler, I was convinced that all the truckloads of flowers that would arrive for his birthday were actually for me... #nowandforever.”

Twinkle’s husband and Rajesh Khanna’s son-in-law, Akshay Kumar also took to social media and wished his wife and his late father-in-law. Sharing the following picture, Akshay wrote, “While growing up I’d heard fascinating tales of his superstardom, never imagining one day I’ll marry his fascinating daughter...thank you for giving me this precious one.  Happy birthday to both of you.”

Akshay Kumar had once commented in an interview about his equation with his father-in-law. He was quoted as saying, “He used to call me buddy, and we were friends. We could talk and discuss anything and everything. More than my father-in-law, he was my friend. Dad always said I should be a writer was proud of my maggot filled poetry-would've been beaming that I got that paper in my hand eventually.” (Also Read: Priyanka Chopra Gets Hilariously Trolled On Pic With Mom-In-Law, Trolls Say She Looks Old As Her)

And when it comes to his wife, Twinkle, the two make one of the most adorable couples ever in the showbiz world. With their constant support and respect towards each other, Akshay and Twinkle have come a long way together. Talking about Twinkle, Akshay once said, “Twinkle has not only added to my wardrobe but also to my bank balance. I was a scattered person; she is the one who has put me together. After marriage, she has kind of raised me (Laughs). On a serious note, whenever I’ve broken down, she’s given me emotional support.”

Speaking reverently about her in another interview, the Padman actor said, “Tina (Twinkle) is my best friend. My wife is the best person any man could wish to wake up next to. She holds me up when I’m falling and puts me down when I’m flying. She makes me laugh when I’m sad and moans when I am sitting idle. Tina is everything for me. She is my reality check.”

Twinkle too has always been open about her love for Akshay. She once said, “He really believes in my capabilities as a person and that gave me a lot of confidence to switch jobs. Even today, if I do something new, he ensures he is a part of it. For instance, I have been writing a weekly column in a newspaper since a year now (the interview was conducted in September 2014), but he still reads all my pieces before I submit them.”

Once, Akshay said the most down-to-earth thing about his wife, “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.” (Suggested Read: Twinkle Khanna Finally Reveals The Real Reason Why She Didn't Add Akshay's Last Name To Hers)
