Akshay Kumar wants daughter Nitara to learn self-defence techniques

I can only protect my daughter if she learns to protect herself, he says.

Akshay Kumar is one Bollywood father we all look up to, especially because of the way he loves his wife and takes care of his children, daughter Nitara and son Aarav.

In an interview to a leading national daily, the actor says, "Being grateful is the key to happiness. If you aren’t thankful for your life, you don’t deserve what you have achieved."

The 48-year-old actor now wants his daughter Nitara to learn self-defence techniques as he says that he can only protect her if she knows how to protect herself.

"She will be starting her training when she turns four, which is not too far. It is important for girls to feel that they have the confidence, and the strength to defend themselves — anytime, anywhere and against anyone. A man can’t imagine the insecurities, and the fear some women have to face on a daily basis," he said in the interview.

Akshay feels that Nitara has to pick-up self-defence techniques, whether she likes it or not. "I can only protect my daughter if she learns to protect herself. I wish I could hold her hand for the rest of her life, but I know that that’s just a father’s dream," he added.


The Housefull actor says that he has a feeling that Nitara is going to be a little Ninja.

"Whether she likes it or not, she will have to learn these self-defence techniques. I already have a feeling that Nitara’s going to be a little Ninja. There is power in her big brown eyes, and I can’t wait to put that to some good use," he says.

Recently, even Akshay's son Aarav got a black belt in Karate and Judo and Akshay can't stop talking about it.

"Aarav earning his black belt means more to me than when I bagged my own. The sheer pride and happiness he has given me and his mother is something he’ll never know till he has his own child. I just want to see him fulfil his dreams; I don’t want him to feel that he has to fulfil mine, says an excited Akshay.

"I have been there throughout his struggle; I know the pain he’s been through, and the kind of dedication it takes. But this moment, and his achievement, will never be taken away from him; he’s earned my respect for life," he adds.

Akshay also recently completed 15 years of marriage with your wife, Twinkle and he says that she is the best person in the world for him.

"Tina is my best friend. My wife is the best person any man could wish to wake up next to. She holds me up when I’m falling, and puts me down when I’m flying. She makes me laugh when I’m sad, and moans when I am sitting idle (laughs). Tina is everything for me. She is my reality check," he says.

Oh, he is such a wonderful husband and father. We hope all men take cues from him to how an ideal family man should be!
