Akshay Kumar’s family: Check out all the details about the Khiladi of Bollywood – Akshay Kumar’s family. Some of these details are lesser-known about them.
Akshay Kumar is one of the most famous Bollywood actors of all time. The superstar has been ruling the film industry for almost 25 years now. In this post, we will look at Akshay Kumar’s family members who have been the main motivational factor behind all the success, the actor has achieved in these years. Let’s have a look:
Father: Hari Om Bhatia
Hari Om Bhatia was a soldier in the Indian army based in Amritsar. Before joining the army, he was wrestler. He later joined UNICEF as an accountant and that was when Akshay Kumar was born. When akshay was three years old, the family moved to Mumbai. He suffered from prostate cancer and died in 2000.
Mother: Aruna Bhatia
Akshay’s mother Aruna Bhatia has been a housewife all her life and she says that Akshay was very helpful when it came to doing household chores. He even helped her wash the dirty dishes when they could not afford a maid. Akshay launched his production house ‘Hari Om Productions’ and a cancer shelter for army men and police men suffering from cancer after his late father’s name. His mother is also a part of production house and helps in running it.
Sister: Alka Bhatia Hiranandani
Alka Bhatia has always stayed away from the film industry and the papparazzi. Her first marriage did not go down well and she divorced her first husband. Then, she was spotted at various events with businessman Surendra Hiranandani and many speculated that something was brewing between the two.
Wife: Twinkle Khanna
Twinkle made her debut with the movie Barsaat and went on to do a total of fifteen Hindi films and one Telugu films. She did two movies opposite Akshay Kumar- International Khiladi, Zulmi and love started brewing between the two. They got hitched in 2001 and since then Twinkle hasn’t appeared in movies. She has accepted that she did not enjoy acting even a bit. She worked as an interior designer and is a co-producer in Grazing Goat Pictures. She is a very popular columnist and her books Mrs Funnybones and The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad have done quite well.
Brother-in-law: Surendra Hiranandani
Alka and Surendra Hiranandani got married in the year 2012. Akshay was not happy about the marriage initially due to the age difference between them (Alka was 40 and Surendra was 55 at that time) and also because this was Surendra second marriage but he agreed eventually. Surendra is a successful businessman, the co-founder and managing director of Hiranandani Group.
Son: Aarav Bhatia
Born on 11 September 2002, Aarav started learning martial arts at an early age of 4. He studied at Ecole Mondiale World School, Juhu. He made his parents proud when he won the Green Globe for Outstanding Contribution by a Child. He was also noted as being the youngest person to have sponsored a village under ‘Light a Billion Lives’ campaign.
Daughter: Nitara Bhatia Khanna
Nitara was born on 25 September 2012 and we have seen very little of her because Akshay tries to keep her away from the media. He wants his kids to have a normal childhood and we absolutely respect that. Though we do get to see glimpse of her while travelling or through Twinkle’s uploads on social media.
