Now if this isn’t cute then we don’t know what defines CUTE! Off-screen, Akshay is equally as much of a hero to his beloved son, Aarav, in whom Akshay is said to be actively instilling his strong values of discipline, punctuality and respect! Pretty great if we may say so!
Akshay has said that when he takes a second to reflect on the way in which he is bringing up his son, he becomes reminiscent of his upbringing with his own father.
“When I see how I’m bringing him up, I can literally hear my father’s voice in my own. Twice a week, I do the same thing that my father would do with me with Aarav. I wake him up before the sun comes up and we go for a run on the beach before he leaves for school”.
It seems Aarav is following in his father’s footsteps when it comes to sports and is already a brown belt in Karate. It is no secret that Akshay himself is a huge fan of the discipline of Martial Arts. The superstar has a 6th degree black belt in Karate and has the title of Shihan, which translates to teachers teacher! You don’t want to mess with this dude!
He is due for his 7th degree black belt imminently. Akshay also launched a Kudo Tournament five years ago, pioneering the biggest ever Martial Arts movement in Indian Karate, and just last week he launched a Martial Arts Institute for women in Mumbai, which will offer three-month long, free-of-charge, self-defense classes.
It seems there is no end to Akshay Kumar’s talent, as just recently his new film:Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty released to impressive figures at the global box office.
Watch out Aarav has his belts ready to go! Karate Time!
