“I believe the first test of a truly great man is humility”, has said John Ruskin and when our very own ‘Khatron ka Khiladi’, Akshay Kumar, met up with his childhood friend, he passed this test with flying colors.
At a recent event to launch a magazine with Akshay & his wife Twinkle on the cover, Akshay Kumar was pleasantly surprised to be presented with a childhood photograph of himself by his friend and his joy knew no bounds as he walked down the memory lane. “I am very happy to see my friend and I am also glad to see this photograph of my school. I can’t tell you how excited and surprised I am about it,” stated Akshay modestly.
Akshay’s unassuming nature is a known fact and his friend not only confirmed that but also revealed how naughty and fun-loving Akshay was as a kid and still is. Talking about their childhood moments, his friend said, “Rajeev (Akshay Kumar’s original name) was very naughty. I remember, once our teacher and principal called up his father to meet them, even at that time he was smiling as if nothing had happened.”
Humble and mischievous – now that’s a package only ‘Khiladi Kumar’ can portray at his best.
