Akshay Kumar, a successful actor and filmmaker, is also a protective father. To ensure that his children have a normal life, he doesn't expose them to the media.
Currently riding high on the success of "Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty", Akshay is raising two children with wife and actress Twinkle Khanna.
When asked if he deliberately keeps his children away from the limelight, he promptly said: "Yes."
"I think it is better to keep children away from being seen everywhere - in newspapers and all. I want to give them a normal childhood," Akshay told IANS.
What are the joys of watching your kids growing up?
"It's absolutely a delight, it's the biggest joy for any father. Earlier, when I used to finish my shoot, I wasn't really interested in going home. But after my kids were born, I wait to finish work so that I can rush home and spend time with them."
"I want to hear them calling me daddy, dad, dada. The happiness is something that I can never measure," he said.
