After the Bollywood Khiladi’s wife, Twinkle Khanna, challenged Akshay Kumar to share a childhood picture of himself in order to promote awareness about the girl child and improving the situations for homeless children.
And not only was Twinkle Khanna in for a treat, but fans of khiladi Akshay Kumar too cant suppress a happy chuckle when Akshay shared a picture from his early teen years which certainly gave us the roots to his fitness obsession, which seems to be steaming from his early days of life.
Sharing the picture, the Bhool Bhulaiyaa actor captioned it as, “Growing up I was always inclined towards sports and my mother would ensure I got nutritious home-cooked meals to fuel my passion. But it’s a privilege that millions of street children do not have access to. 11,72,604 children in India can’t afford even a single meal a day! It’s time to ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india. I nominate @balanvidya @aslisona @taapsee@nithyamenen @iamkirtikulhari.”
Twinkle had shared a picture of herself from her school days with a caption that read, “Growing up, as you can see not only did I have the same hairstyle as my class teacher( why? why? why?) but studying and doing well was very important to me and it all helped me to become an independent woman. 2/5 girls still don’t complete school. Let’s ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india to give every girl #TheRightStart – I nominate @sonamkapoor @tahirakashyap@akshaykumar to take this further by sharing their school memories.”
On the professional front, Akshay has an interesting line up of films with Housefull 4, Good News alongside Kareena Kapoor Khan, Laxmmi Bomb, Rohit Shetty’s Sooryavanshi followed by Prithviraj Chauhan.
