I want to give my son the title of Khiladi: Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar, the ultimate khiladi of Bollywood is back with another film, Khiladi 786 says he would love to give the title to his 10-year-old son Aarav in future.

I would give this title ‘Khiladi’ to my son after another 24 years.

he said. The actor is all praise for filmmakers Abbas-Mustan, who were the first to give him the title of ‘khiladi’ with the 1992 film.

When I first entered the industry, they were the ones who gave me this tag ‘khiladi’. It is with me since then. After that, many films were made on ‘khiladi’ and this (‘Khiladi 786’) is a ‘khiladi’ film I am doing after 12 years. So you can call this is a comeback film of ‘khiladi’.

The hit Khiladi series includes ‘Khiladi’ (1992), ‘Main Khiladi Tu Anari’ (1994), ‘Sabse Bada Khiladi’ (1995), ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’ (1996), ‘Mr. and Mrs. Khiladi’ (1997), ‘International Khiladi’ (1999), and ‘Khiladi 420’ (2000). He also made his TV debut as the host of action-adventure reality show ‘Fear Factor – Khatron Ke Khiladi’ in 2009. Akshay, who recently became a father to a daughter, says he has to take his ‘khiladi’ tag very seriously off the screen as well, thanks to his wife, Twinkle Khanna.

I don’t have any choice! My wife is a very competitive woman. If I come last, I wouldn’t be greeted very well when I come back home. My daughter is six days old. By the time she grows up, I will be 50 or 52, and that time I will have to compete with all other parents who are of 30 and again my wife is going to say I have to win. It’s going to be a challenge for me.

he added.
Meanwhile, talking about his daughter, he says

I try to spend as much time possible (with her). As soon as I get done with my shooting and press conferences, I go and see her.
