The famous Bollywood chat show - Koffee with Karan finally featured the Khiladi of Bollywood - Akshay Kumar on the couch. Looking dashing, he easily opened up about the reasons for avoiding the show, his Bollywood journey and beautiful wife Twinkle.
After hosting this show for 3 seasons, Karan finally got Akshay to have a coffee date with him. On being asked why he stayed away from the show he clarified, â€œWhen we come on your show, you ask all these kinds of very controversial questions. So nobody wants to be grilled and nobody wants to get into anybody's bad books and don't want to answer anything stupid that it hurts somebody's feelings.â€ Akshay further added that he would prefer to meet Karan, who is his wife Twinkle's friend, at a social gathering rather than appearing on his show and getting himself involved in controversies.
Although the actor preferred his wife to accompany him on the show, she decided to stay away as she cannot keep her mouth shut and would regret it later. To this Akshay says, â€œMy wife is like that. I always tell her to be diplomatic but she is like thatâ€¦ what is white is white and what is black is black for her. There is no filter in her mind.â€ When questioned about their personalities he said, â€œWe keep on discovering new things about each other because we're so different. We're poles apart. She's this side, I'm completely that side.â€
Unknown to many, the actor has a habit of waking up at 5 am every day. â€œMornings we're supposed to get up and work. I don't know where you come from to say that you don't work.â€ He said to the host. The actor is very happy with his stance in cinema and says, â€œI'm happy with what I've got. I'm not fighting anything. But yes, I want to keep on goingâ€¦ everyday when I listen to scripts, I'm looking for that script if I can get something to proveâ€¦ like a 'Special 26'. I was very happy with even a script like 'Oh My God!â€
Akshay Kumar has nothing to complain about the film critics in India stating, â€œThey've been very kind. They've called me furniture and I'm actually a showroom. So they've been very kind.â€ He finds these comments nice and funny to read and prefers not to react.
In the past the actor was portrayed as a Casanova but he has no regrets. â€œI'm not ashamed of it. I was not married then. And I'm a full-grown man so there's nothing wrong with what I did.â€ quoted the actor.
The actor faces no challenges of being faithful and says, â€œWhen you have your children waiting back home after pack up, you just want to run back.â€ He elaborated how time flies by and life changes with responsibilities - marriage, children and now his beautiful daughter.
Wellâ€¦ Akshay did do his homework, came well prepared and had a rapid fire round for the host. In fact, he was seen pulling Karan's legs and having fun.
