Akshay Kumar was asked about son Aarav’s Bollywood entry, here’s what he said
At a recent event, Akshay Kumar was asked if his teenaged son, Aarav, is set for a Bollywood debut. The Gold actor, however, said that his son was too young and is concentrating on getting an education.
As is a standard practice with star kids, will Aarav Bhatia, son of Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna, enter the movie industry? Well, that was the question that was posed to the Gold actor at a recent event. Now, Aarav is often spotted with his friend Ibrahim Ali Khan, son of Saif Ali Khan, by the paparazzi.
However, daddy Akshay feels he is way too young to become an actor. Answering questions about his son, Akshay was quoted by Times of India as saying that “he is interested only in his studies”. Akshay revealed that once Aarav is done with his studies in Mumbai, he intends to continue further studies in London. In fact, he has even identified the school in London that he wants to attend.
Both Akshay and Twinkle have been very protective about their children. In fact, for the longest time, Aarav and his kid sister Nitara’s pictures were nowhere to be seen, unlike many other star kids’. That is because the couple wanted to give the children as normal a childhood as was possible. However, of late, both seem a lot more relaxed about putting out pictures of their children (though they are still careful not to show Nitara’s face). In fact, a recent picture from their holiday in the US in June, in which Nitara has a map in hand while her big brother looks on, was a big hit with fans.
Meanwhile, Akshay remains as busy as ever with his work. On his return from the US, he has been busy promoting his new film, Gold, which also stars Mouni Roy (making her big screen debut), Karan Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Vineet Singh (of Mukkabaaz fame) in prominent roles. The film has been directed by Reema Kagti.
Twinkle, who moonlights as a columnist and goes by the name Mrs Funnybones, recently launched her latest book, Pyjamas Are Forgiving.
