Even before entering the film industry,Akshay had all ladies going weak in the knees and had earned the Casanova title quite too often. His charisma, sense of humour and drop -dead gorgeous physique made him the most eligible bachelor of Bollywood.

Their marriage had been done in the presence of close friends ,co-actors and directors of the film industry.They had two kids ,Aarav and Nitara , and supported each other fully in their career decisions, parenthood and emotional support.
They had their fair share of ups and downs, unwanted media publicity and rumors but they held on to each other without losing trust in each other.
They have been quite vocal about their never-ending love for each other and often say that their personalities are poles apart. He is a successful self-made actor in the film industry whereas she is a talented blogger,designer ,published author and a homemaker. She is the perfect definition of a superwoman who has helped, guided and shielded her husband in testing times.
Akshay has openly confesses his love and respect for his lovely wife in many interviews , giving us some couple goals to write down and preserve!
He said,‘’We keep on discovering new things about each other because we are so different. We are poles apart.”
This definitely speaks volumes about how two people who are totally opposite can carry a marriage with ease .
Professing his admiration and her role in his life, he said, “The one idea that changed my life was the day I decided to get married to my wife.’’
Wow, is that not what every wife wants from his husband?
To end their love story on a beautiful note, look at what he had to say for their marriage ,
“Tina (Twinkle) is my best friend. My wife is the best person any man could wish to wake up next to. She holds me up when I’m falling, and puts me down when I’m flying. She makes me laugh when I’m sad, and moans when I am sitting idle. Tina is everything for me. She is my reality check.”
Here’s wishing more love, strength and eternal success to this lovely Jodi of Bollywood!
