Akshay Kumar might come from a very non-filmy background but he is married into one of elitist families. Married to Twinkle, daughter of yesteryear superstar Rajesh Khanna and diva Dimple Kapadia, Akshay in an interview to Koimoi admitted that he can never attain his father in law’s stature, fan following and stardom.


Putting it in a humorous tone, the actor said, “According to my wife, I can never reach Rajesh Khanna’s Stardom. To a daughter, her father is always bigger and her husband never stands a chance infront of Daddy. I don’t think I can reach there and hence I am not in a spot to compare myself either.”

Married to Twinkle Khanna for over a decade now, since 2001, the duo are blessed with two children. While Akshay’s stardom is on a high despite the underwhelming box office performances of his last few films, the actor has in his kitty Neeraj Pandey’s Baby and Karan Malhotra’s Brothers. Speaking of the co-actors he admires a lot, Akshay said, “I like Hrithik and Salman a lot. I admire their work.”

Akshay is all set to star in The Shaukeens in a glorified cameo alongside the bombshell actress Lisa Haydon.

  1. It is not only the thinking of Twinkle being the daughter of the Original Superstar of India, but it is the unanimous opinion of India that why only Akshay, nobody else neither in past, present nor in future will attain the Super stardom of Khanna, because the tag SUPERSTAR was invented only for him and he is forever the Exclusive Superstar of India. Actually his status is not only for silver or golden or diamond jubilee hits, his films contain substance with mind blowing performances of Khanna in films after films with golden songs and lip-sings, which taught us how to laugh, how to cry, how to love and above all how to live gracefully with high moral and ethics. So there will be no Rajesh Khanna: The Original Superstar of India.

  2. Its extremely true – no substitute to the ever loving sweetheart who is loved by many even after his gone for eternal journey – today also tears roll on with his memories ——- so please do not dream of comparing him in any way – Gos bless his soul and he rest in peace !
