Akshay Kumar Reveals How Twinkle Khanna's Brilliance Shapes Their Family

Bollywood power couple Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna have been a beacon of love and partnership for over two decades. Their marriage, which began on January 17, 2001, continues to flourish, blending their individual talents and mutual respect.

Recently, Akshay Kumar opened up about his admiration for Twinkle's intelligence and their journey together on cricketer Shikhar Dhawan's chat show, 'Dhawan Karenge'.

Akshay Kumar's Admiration for Twinkle Khanna
In his conversation with Shikhar Dhawan, Akshay Kumar did not hold back his admiration for his wife, Twinkle Khanna. He praised her intellectual prowess, attributing their daughter Nitara's intelligence to Twinkle. "Main to anpadh aadmi hu, zyada padha nahi hu. Main gadha mazdoori karta hu, wo dimag wali hai. (I am an illiterate man, I have not studied much. I do manual labour, whereas she is the one with the brain)," Akshay candidly shared.

This heartfelt confession highlights the deep respect Akshay has for Twinkle's intellect and their complementary roles within their family.

Twinkle Khanna: A Lifelong Learner
One of the most striking aspects of Twinkle Khanna's personality is her relentless pursuit of knowledge. Even at the age of 50, she continues to challenge herself academically. “I go to work and she has taken such good care of my children (son Aarav and daughter Nitara). I am surprised about how my wife looks at life even today. She is 50 now and still goes to study. She has finished her master's and is now doing her PhD,” Akshay mentioned. This dedication to continuous learning not only sets a powerful example for their children but also underscores Twinkle's multifaceted personality.

Twinkle's academic journey has been remarkable. In 2022, she pursued a Master’s in Fiction Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London, a degree she recently completed. This accomplishment adds to her diverse career, which includes being a successful author. Her first non-fiction book, ‘Mrs Funnybones’, released in 2015, showcased her wit and keen observational skills, earning her widespread acclaim.

The Role of Twinkle Khanna in Their Family
Akshay Kumar has always been vocal about Twinkle's pivotal role in their family. In a 2013 interview with Hindustan Times, he acknowledged her significant contributions. “I want to tell her that the success of our family has always lain in her hands. It was never my success as a man, or as anything else for that matter. It is because Tina (Twinkle) has dedicated the last decade of her life to the best thing in both our lives – our children. She lives every minute of her life for them, while I only work every minute I’m not with them." Akshay said.

This statement not only highlights Twinkle's dedication as a mother but also emphasises the mutual respect and teamwork that underpins their relationship.
