Akshay Kumar says he and Twinkle Khanna ‘don’t interfere’ in each other’s lives: ‘We think in two opposite directions’
Actor Akshay Kumar in a recent interview, he revealed the secret to his successful marriage to his wife, actor-turned-author Twinkle Khanna. Akshay opened up about how he and Twinkle are going through their differences and also gave some insight into how their marriage works.
In an interview with ANI news agency, Akshay said, “It works very weirdly. I have no idea. She thinks there, I think there. We think in two opposite directions. Akshay and Twinkle tied the knot in 2001 and have been married for over 20 years. They are parents of two children: Aarav (19 years old) and Nitara (9 years old).
Akshay then revealed how he and Twinkle don’t interfere in each other’s lives and believe in giving each other space. He said, “If asked, then she will give me a suggestion. If she asks me to read her column, I will read it. If she asks me what I think of it; I would say that is not a good thing. If it’s not asked, I stand aside. I don’t interfere with her life, she doesn’t interfere with mine.
The Samrat Pritiviraj actor also shared how, for him and his family, having a work-life balance is of utmost importance. He said, “It’s very important that you keep a balance in your life.” Giving an anecdote from a recent filming at a farmer’s house, Akshay shared, “I’ll tell you the truth, even though his house was really small, there was happiness all around, even more than mine, even though I have everything. They were happy because they are not stressed about anything. They wake up in the morning and go to work, in the evening they have dinner before sunset. They work all day, their children go to a nearby school. They managed to keep a balance.
Akshay was last seen at Bachchhan Paanday and is now gearing up for the release of his upcoming period drama Samrat Prithviraj on June 3. The film is based on the life story of the medieval Indian king Prithviraj Chauhan and his battles against the Mohammed of Ghor.
