Many may not know that Akshay Kumar was earlier known as Rajeev Bhatia who waited tables in Bangkok before he dashed off to Mumbai, became Akshay Kumar, and started ruling Bollywood’s box office tables. Twinkle Khanna on the other hand was the daughter of super star Rajesh Khanna and Bollywood’s sweetheart Dimple Kapadia. Safe enough to say she was born with the proverbial silver spoon. We’ll take you on a journey of Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s love story which is very entertaining!
Well before they met each other, both of them individually have had a very colorful personal space that has seen many people walk in and out. But when they met they had eyes only for each other. Though they were superstars, they forgot about everything else when they were with each other. They were just a normal couple who were madly in love with each other. Akshay K and Twinkle K made a pretty pair on screen and an even more lovable one, off it. The couple has only done two films together: ‘International Khiladi’ and ‘Zulmi’. Both of them were fairly successful at the box office. They met, they smiled, and they married!
Before Twinkle came into his life Akshay Kumar supposedly dated a host of good looking women. Known to be a Casanova, the Khiladi Kumar has apparently dated actresses like Raveena Tandon, Ayesha Jhulka and Shilpa Shetty. Twinkle and Akshay were engaged twice before they finally tied the knot on January 14, 2001. After their marriage, Twinkle left films, as she said she didn’t enjoy the profession of acting anymore, and that she wanted to focus on the family now. They have two kids, Aarav and Nitara.
Akshay and Twinkle also share the same fate as most Bollywood couples, and controversies follow them, wherever they go. In 2007, a tabloid reported that Twinkle and Akshay had a huge showdown at a hotel in Mumbai, because of his proximity to Priyanka Chopra. The reports also said that she threw him out of the house, and he had to stay at a hotel for the night! But through all this the couple has remained strong. And as they say, all is well that ends well. Cheers to that!
