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.
