New Delhi: When two creative people get married, it is difficult for both of them to grow together without intruding into each other’s space. Think of ‘Abhimaan’ where Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri essayed those fictional characters perfectly. But this is the 21st century. Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna have a wedding where they have different views on almost all aspects of creative pursuits and yet they manage to make the relationship work. Sometimes even across continents. Twinkle spends a lot of time with her son Aarav who is currently studying in London. She herself is honing her skills in fiction writing, while her husband Akshay is all set to make waves in one way or another with his latest film ‘Samrat Prithviraj’.
He very clearly states that he divides time between London and India, choosing any role that gives him a chance to shoot in London. Akshay is a family man- a kind father, a dutiful son and brother and an equal partner to his wife. Speaking exclusively to ANI on a whole gamut of issues, Akshay asked about getting married in the South Mumbai sophistication of ‘Pind Da Munda’. He says, “It works so weird. I have no idea. She thinks there, I think (we think in two opposite directions).”
Akshay has a childlike way of accepting what comes in life, admits that he is a sponge when thoughts come to him. Fully conscious that he is not as well educated as his wife, he says that he reads her articles, and listens to her thoughts, her opinions as he meets learned men. Is. And that sometimes fuels her creative instincts.
“If asked and didn’t then why did you do it. If asked, she’ll give me a suggestion. If she asks me to read her column, I’ll read it. If she asks what I think of it If not asked, I keep myself apart. I don’t interfere in her life, she doesn’t interfere with me.” They said.
A big void in his life is the passing of his mother with whom he shares a very special bond. His only brother, his sister lives in the same building in which he lives. In an interview to ANI, he told how work-life balance is very important for everyone.
On this subject, Akshay said, “It is very important that you maintain balance in your life.” He told how a few days ago he had gone to a village for shooting where he had gone to a farmer’s house for tea. .
“I’ll tell you the truth, although his house was really small, there was joy to be around, even more so than mine, though I have everything.”
“They were happy because there is no tension about anything. They get up in the morning and go to work, in the evening they have dinner before sunset. They work all day, their kids go to a nearby school. Let’s go in. They’ve kept a balance.”
“He told me that at night ‘I narrate Ramayana stories to my kids and they fall asleep, sometimes I get so tired that I myself fall asleep when they don’t’. So, I realized That they have put a life balance and it’s a matter of learning, to go back to our basics, we are not at our core.”
‘Prithviraj’ directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi is slated to release on June 3 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Manushi Chhillar, Sanjay Dutt and Sonu Sood are also a part of the period drama. The film is based on the life story of the brave and mighty king Prithviraj Chauhan and portrays the heroic and valiant fight of the great warrior against the brutal invader Muhammad Ghori.
