Akshay Kumar’s transformation from being a roadside romeo of Bollywood to a perfect family man is the fairy tale girls dream of.
After having his son Aarav get a 1st degree black belt in Kudo, Okinawa and Goju Ryu Karate, seems like Akshay is prepping his daughter Nitara to start her karate training as soon as she turns four.

It's a #SonDay all the way! Honestly I can't express my happiness, I've received the best gift ever today. My son started training when he was just four years old. And today, after nine years of hard work he got his 1st degree black belt in Kudo, Okinawa and Goju Ryu Karate Do! Some joys cannot be expressed in words, this one tops the list. But I'm feeling so proud, had to share it with you all 😀 #overwhelmed #cantstopsmiling #proudfather
Akshay says he understands the importance of girls having the confidence and strength to defend themselves.
“She will be starting her training when she turns four, which is not too far…A man can’t imagine the insecurities, and the fear some women have to face on a daily basis.”
And just like any other father, he too dreams of holding his daughter’s hand and protecting her for the rest of her life.
“I can only protect my daughter if she learns to protect herself. I wish I could hold her hand for the rest of her life, but I know that that’s just a father’s dream. Whether she likes it or not, she will have to learn these self-defense techniques.”
I already have a feeling that Nitara’s going to be a little Ninja. There is power in her big brown eyes, and I can’t wait to see that put to some good use.
And Akshay, you’ll be the perfect Daddyy!
