Even after two decades of togetherness, Bollywood star couple Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna cannot help but try and impress each other. In fact, Akshay admitted as much during a recently released BTS training video of his upcoming film BellBottom. The clip featured Akshay and some members of the cast performing intense training sequences in the middle of a jungle.
Commenting on the same, Khiladi Kumar said, “My wife happened to be visiting on the sets when we shot the sequence in the jungle. So, I had to pull all my tricks out of the bag because even after 20 years, I still can’t help but want to impress her. I had to do the most chin-ups because there were other boys also, but I had to do more than that so that she can always be impressed with me. Luckily, my wife notices everything so it is never in vain.” Replying on Instagram, Twinkle wrote, “I am impressed. Now will you stop these stunts?”
In another post, she wrote, “Haha! On the contrary, I am terrified when he leaps off buildings and planes. The fact that he is still in one piece impresses me more than all his stunts. Stay safe Mr K #Bellbottom Repost@akshaykumar Lights, camera, #BellBottom in ACTION. Catch this behind the scene video! Releasing on the big screen also in 3D, on 19th August.”
