While Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna’s 15 year-old marriage along with Mrs.Funnybones’ sass has been giving us goals all this year , it’s Akshay Kumar who is telling us what it takes to be the new-age feminist husband this time.
Twinkle Khanna has just launched her first movie production house in spite of the fact that Akshay already owns three existing banners. While she’s definitely not been the one to play a trophy wife ever, it’s Akshay’s awe which is making us go ”Aww”!
Here’s how Akshay Kumar responded to Mumbai Mirror when asked about his wife’s new production house:
Times are changing and for the better! If there is one thing I can promise, it’s that my wife will bring a whole new light to the meaning of progressive opinions, regression, culture and the future with her own magical ‘Funny Bone’. Proud doesn’t come close to how I feel about her passion for change, I’m more than behind her, I’m in awe of her!
Twinkle has and always will be an independent woman. She is not a trophy wife and nor am I a trophy husband for her. Throughout our marriage, she has continued to keep her individuality and independence intact. Once she gave up acting, she steered towards interior designing. She has her own company, The White Window, that’s been running for years, as well as a family company, The FarAway Tree. Now she is a successful author and Mrs Funnybones is her new identity. When she felt the need to make films she believes in, she decided to float her own production house. She is the most forward-thinking person I know. She has my support, encouragement as well as millions who follow her sentiments. She will do nothing but good in her new-found position. All I can urge is for people to watch this space.
And in a rather adorable smirk, Akshay added that he wouldn’t even mind getting a salary from Twinkle. After all, who else will pamper her with congratulatory diamonds?
My wife better give me a salary, no one else is gonna buy her congratulatory diamonds for making her films She needs to pay me so that I can pamper her!
In fact, I’m looking forward to working under her. I not only want to be a doting husband but also an ideal actor who fits in with her vision. That is my New Year resolution. She is going to give me a run for my money for sure.
