Fine with son watching me romance on-screen: Akshay Kumar
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar says he is fine with his son Aarav watching him romance actresses on screen and doesn’t even put any parental restrictions on him.
“It is a film.. it’s my job. If you and I are walking hand in hand he would be comfortable watching us together,” Akshay said in an interview.
“I don’t tell him what to watch and what to not (films and TV). What is the point? They can go quietly and watch whatever they want,” the 47-year-old actor said.The Rowdy Rathore star, who is one of the fittest actors in the industry, says he was not aware that Aarav too is a martial arts enthusiast.
“He did not tell me about his interest in this field. He has exams (martial art) in about four months time. I think children always think that they can learn from someone else. I did not groom him.
“I can teach him, since, I am a Black belt <g data-gr-id="37">myself</g> but it is always better that someone else teaches, because a child always says, ‘dad you don’t know anything’. According to them, I don’t know anything,” Akshay said.
The actor even suggested that the Government should make self-defence skills compulsory in schools.
“I think the government should make compulsory for boys and girls to compulsorily learn martial arts in schools as it will help them,” he said.
On the work front, Akshay is looking forward to the release of Karan Johar’s next home production Brothers. He will be also seen in Prabhu Deva’s Singh is Bling and Bhushan Kumar’s Airlift.
