The power couple, Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna, have been married for over a decade

In the first episode of cricketer Shikhar Dhawan’s chat show, Dhawan Karenge, Akshay spoke about Twinkle’s intelligence and how he was lucky to marry her.

Praising their daughter Nitara (11), the ‘khilaadi’ star said she gets her intelligence from mom Twinkle.

“Main to anpadh aadmi hu, zyada padha nahi hu. Main gadha mazdoori karta hu, wo (Twinkle Khanna) dimag wali hai. (I am an illiterate man, I have not studied much. I do manual labour, whereas she is the one with the brain)," Akshay stated.

While praising,he added:
“I go to work and she has taken such good care of my children (son Aarav and daughter Nitara). I am surprised about how my wife looks at life even today. She is 50 now and still goes to study. She has finished her master's and is now doing her PhD.”

In 2022, Twinkle Khanna went onto pursue her Masters in Fiction Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London; she completed her degree recently. In 2015, Twinkle released her first non-fiction book, Mrs Funnybones.

Further in the conversation, Akshay talked about his son, Aarav. He shared that his son left home at the mere age of 15 to pursue his higher studies in London. The actor praised his son for being grounded and knowing how to do his laundry, wash utensils and cook for himself. Akshay also added that Aarav never asks for branded clothes, he prefers wearing secondhand clothes. Sharing that his son doesn’t want to act in films, Akshay said:

“My son Aarav is studying at the university in London. He left home at the age of 15. He was always fond of studying and wanted to stay alone. It was his decision to move even though I didn’t want him to go. He does his own laundry, he is a good cook, does the utensils and doesn’t even want to buy expensive clothes. In fact, he goes to a second-hand store, Thrifty, to buy clothes because he doesn’t believe in wastage. We never forced him to do anything; he is interested in fashion, he doesn’t want to be a part of cinema. He came to me and said that I didn’t want to do films. I said this is your life, do what you want to do.”

Akshay and Twinkle celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary this year. The two have often praised each other.

 In an 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."
