Actor Akshay Kumar feels that women – mothers and wives – play an immense role in every man’s life. The Bollywood star feels that the credit for the success of his family goes to his wife, Twinkle.
Especially today giving the complete credit of his family’s succeess to Twinkle he says, “I want to tell her that the success of our family has always lain in her hands. It was never my success as a man, or as anything else for that matter. It is because Tina (Twinkle) has dedicated the last decade of her life to the best thing in both our lives – our children. She lives every minute of her life for them, while I only work every minute I’m not with them.”
According to Akshay a father’s role is very different from a mother’s. “Yes, it is hard to be without them even for a day, but the truth is, the first 17 years of a child’s life are dependent almost entirely on their mother. And it’s around that very age that your first-born finally turns to you as an adult and becomes your friend; looks at you as a mentor rather than a know-it-all and then finally wants to be a part of your world rather than you needing to be a part of theirs. But it is a mother’s life that should be worshipped, appreciated and never forgotten even for a day. It’s mothers that make all men’s lives successful; its mothers that make men realise how precious their wives really are.”
Mother’s Day for Akshay is like most other days – a panic to ensure that all the women in his family are happy. Initially Akshay gifted his mom homemade cards but stopped it a while ago, however Aarav taking it ahead still puts his heart and soul into making them for Tina.
On a closing note Akshay adds, “My part is very easy. I take everyone out for dinner and pick up the bill. But I truly feel that the best thing anyone can do is to treat them (mothers) like it’s Mother’s Day every day. That’s just it. Moms don’t stop being amazing for even a day, so why should we stop being grateful? Happy Mother’s Day for life, mom!”
