We all loved Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai for a zillion of reasons, but the epic way in which Maya Sarabhai handled her husband, Indravadan Sarabhai’s ‘Main mard hoon’ instances were our most favourite. While a woman is expected to be a homemaker, a man plays the role of a breadwinner. Patriarchy is deeply rooted in our culture and mindset but with the changing times and modernisation, men and women have managed to take a few steps towards achieving gender equality. Be it Govinda in Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya or Arjun Kapoor in Ki and Ka, ‘men helping out at home’ situation is no more a taboo in the society. Even in real-life, celeb husbands have taken a step towards achieving the same and Akshay Kumar is one of them!

For the uninitiated, Akshay Kumar had worked as a chef in Bangkok before making his blockbuster entry in the entertainment industry. Sometime back, Akshay had taken to Instagram and had shared a sneak peek of his cooking time with his son, Aarav Kumar. He had captioned his post as “Father and son busy making soufflé and layered white chocolate mousse for our dinner guests. I have trained my boys well #dessertstory #sundayshenanigans.” Their daughter, Nitara also tries to help in the kitchen, and giving a glimpse of the same, Twinkle had shared, “A holiday for her=Double the work for me #MommyMornings.”
Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna are poles apart, but madly in love with one another and together they make for a perfect couple, giving millennials #RelationshipGoals. Twinkle and Akshay are each other’s biggest critics and fans, and they have no qualms in sharing unfiltered opinions about one another. A while back, Twinkle revealed why her hubby, Akshay isn’t allowed to make coffee at home anymore. Sharing a picture of Akshay, holding a coffee cup and her witty caption could be read as “Writers need caffeine almost as much as pencils require graphite. But… this is the reason why I have never asked him to make a cup of coffee for me again! #throwback #writerswoes.”
Akshay Kumar had once revealed his and his wife, Twinkle Khanna's responsibilities as parents. He had stated in an interview with The Times of India, "With my son, my job is simple. I let him do whatever he wants. If he feels a particular school is good for him, he checks out its website, fills the form and completes the formalities by himself. My job is to sign as a guardian and just pay the money. It’s as simple as that. Not to forget, my wife, Tina, is also a fabulously responsible parent to both our kids."

On January 17, 2019, Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna had completed 18 years of marital bliss and the actor-turned-author wifey had taken to Instagram to wish her hubby with a hilarious message. Elaborating on what she calls an ‘18 Year Challenge’, Twinkle had posted an array of posts and had revealed the answer to the question ‘what did your husband give you for anniversary’. But giving it a twist, Twinkle had talked about everything her husband ‘didn’t’ get her on their anniversary, which she would have loved to have.
In her first post, Twinkle Khanna could be seen climbing aboard an aircraft, with the caption, “What did your husband give you for your anniversary? Unfortunately, he didn’t give me a private jet #18YearChallenge.” In her next post, Twinkle had posted a picture with her childhood crush, Rob Lowe and had written, “What did your husband give you for your anniversary? Unfortunately, he didn’t give me a date with my childhood crush Rob Lowe #18yearchallenge.”
In her third post, Twinkle Khanna had posted a picture of Akshay Kumar hugging Ranveer Singh and had captioned it as, “What did your husband give you for your anniversary? Unfortunately, he didn’t even give me a freshly wrapped Mr Singh just kept all the hugs for himself #18yearchallenge.” Twinkle had saved the most beautiful wish for the last in her series of anniversary wishes for her husband, Akshay, which could be read as “What did your husband give you for your anniversary? Fortunately, he gave me 18 years of solid friendship, enough space so I could grow and somehow managed to hold my hand for a large part of the way. This is not the end-apparently we are just on page 120! #18yearchallenge.” (Also Read: Rakhi Sawant's Cryptic Video About 'Shaadi Mat Karna' Hints Towards All Is Not Well In Her Marriage)
