Akshay Kumar has no qualms being an average dad. Here's why!
"People think I’m lucky because I’m famous, but there’s nothing more fulfilling than being an average dad doing average things but still bringing the biggest smiles to the ones I love," says the famous actor and dad to two kids, Aarav and Nitara.
Trust Akshay Kumar to be extremely honest and humble in whatever he does. So when it comes to defining his parenting style, the actor finds pleasure in being an average dad.
Yes, that’s right!
“I’m not a star at home, I’m a son, husband, brother and father first. And my kids have been brought up knowing I’m just like every other man trying his best. The only thing they witness out of the ordinary is the paparazzi,” he said in the interview.
Being an average dad is fulfilling…
Kumar added that at home is not a star, but like any other man trying his best.
“People think I’m lucky because I’m famous. But there’s nothing more fulfilling than being an average dad doing average things but still bringing the biggest smiles to the ones I love,” he said while speaking to a leading daily.
Kumar like always stressed on the fact that he wants his kids to have a normal upbringing and not once should they think that they are privileged.
“They come to see all my films with humble hearts and never with an attitude of supremacy. That comes from teaching them that everyone is equal. Only opportunities change the outcome of people’s lives not momentary status,” he added.
Nitara likes to get mucky…
Akshay also shared that his daughter Nitara likes to get mucky and dirty while Aarav is more into adventure sports.
“My kids, they can be doing anything they wish, but as long as I’m in their vicinity, I’m happy. Aarav loves adventure and even my little princess likes to get mucky. As long as she’s wearing pink or purple when she’s doing it,” he said while speaking to an entertainment website.
This is not the first time that Akshay has shared that his kids love to play tough games and get dirty. Previously also Kumar had shared that he would want Nitara to take up self-defence and learn martial arts.
In fact, his son Aarav is already training in martial arts and has earned his first-degree black belt in Kudo. Martial arts can be a good exercise for kids and one that can help them in times of distress.
1.Discipline: The greatest asset that your child will get from learning martial arts and one that he can keep with him for life is discipline.
2. Focus: Each of these martial arts have techniques and steps to master which you need great focus and grit. Practicing them each day would only benefit your child and in more ways that you can imagine.
3. Stamina and flexibility: It goes without saying that martial arts can be a good physical activity for your child and would help increase his stamina and flexibility.
