Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna's relationship

Akshay and Twinkle celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary this year. The two have often praised each other. In a 2013 interview with Hindustan Times, Akshay talked about Twinkle. He had said, “I want to tell her that the success of our family has always lain in her hands. It was never my success as a man, or as anything else for that matter. It is because Tina (Twinkle) has dedicated the last decade of her life to the best thing in both our lives – our children. She lives every minute of her life for them, while I only work every minute I’m not with them."
