On his 52nd birthday today, Akshay Kumar opens up about treating his body like a temple, his birthday plans and how he finds haters targeting children Aarav and Nitara online abhorrent.
He feels there’s a need to protect his kids — Aarav (16) and Nitara (6), from paparazzi culture. Actor Akshay Kumar, when asked about his 16-year-old son Aarav’s pictures being subjected to “nasty comments” by trolls, said, "Trash talking anyone under 21 publicly should be illegal."
"Those that troll toddlers and teens, I have no words for that kind of behaviour," he added. "It’s sad that such a great and powerful technology such as social media is tainted by people wanting to hurt, mock, humiliate or just insist on throwing opinions with no fear of the damage such hate can cause the youth. All we can do as parents is to teach our kids to be thick-skinned," said Akshay.
All this mess have begun when Bollywood star Twinkle Khanna was recently papped at the airport with her son Aarav and their pictures went viral on the internet for all the wrong reasons. He was ousted for his middle craft hair cut which the toddler compared with Radhey From Salman Khan's 'Tere Naam'.
