My wife Twinkle’s luck has worked for me: Akshay Kumar


The 46-year-old actor, who would be next seen in A R Murugadoss’s action thriller ‘Holiday’, said that she has always supported him in his decisions. “Her (Twinkle) luck factor has always worked for me. She has supported me in all my decisions and has always been there. She doesn’t read the scripts that I am offered,” Akshay said in an interview here.

“She has her own life and she is busy with it. She is happy that we have a good family and we are all together,” he added.

Twinkle, daughter of Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia, married Akshay in 2001. After leaving the film industry in the same year, the ‘Jab Pyar Kisi Se Hota Hai’ actress ventured into interior designing.

At a time when many B-town actresses like Sridevi, Kajol, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are making a comeback, Twinkle does not seem to be very keen about it. When asked, if Twinkle has any plans to return to films, the actor, popular for ‘Khiladi’ series said, “No she has no such plans. I asked her and she says she just wants to stay happy.”

For Akshay it is an absolute delight to watch his children– son Aarav and daughter Nitara – grow in front of him. “It is the biggest joy for any father to see their kids growing up. Earlier, when I used to finish my shoot, I wasn’t really interested in going home. But after my kids were born, I would wait to finish work so that I could rush back home and spend time with them,” Akshay said.

“I want to hear them calling me daddy, dad, dada. It is something, which I can never measure… I can’t put these feelings in words,” added the actor.
