If social media is to be believed, every person is a chef during the lockdown. While we, adults, are struggling to step into the kitchen in this scorching heat and learning to cook for survival, the kids are giving some major culinary goals with their cooking skills. Missing the days of posting pictures of food from restaurants and cafes on social media, everyone’s now flaunting their cooking talent by sharing pictures of their homecooked meals. Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar’s son, Aarav Kumar has made his mom proud by baking a cake for her.

For the uninitiated, Akshay Kumar had worked as a chef in Bangkok before becoming the Khiladi of Bollywood with his blockbuster entry in the entertainment industry. Months back, Akshay had taken to his IG handle and had shared a sneak peek of his cooking time with his son, Aarav Kumar. He had captioned his post as “Father and son busy making soufflé and layered white chocolate mousse for our dinner guests. I have trained my boys well #dessertstory #sundayshenanigans.” The little one, Nitara too tries to help in the kitchen, and giving a glimpse of the same, Twinkle had later posted a picture and had written, “A holiday for her=Double the work for me #MommyMornings.”
During the lockdown, Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar’s handsome boy, Aarav Kumar had donned his chef’s hat and baked a chocolate brownie cake with cherry compote for his family. The proud mom, Twinkle described her 17-year-old boy’s baking skills in the most hilarious way and captioned the picture as "When I had a bun in the oven, I did not know I was going to push out a future baker. I produced him and seventeen years later he produced this chocolate brownie cake with cherry compote. #ProudMomMoment." When the Indian food columnist of BBC, Maunika Gowardhan commented on the post, “In the genes” Twinkle replied, “@cookinacurry not from my side clearly.”
Be it Govinda in Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya or Arjun Kapoor in Ki and Ka, ‘men helping out at home’ situation is no more a taboo in the society. Even in real-life, celeb husbands have taken a step towards achieving the same and Akshay Kumar is one of them! Twinkle and Akshay are each other’s biggest critics and fans, and they have no qualms in sharing unfiltered opinions about one another. Sometime back, Twinkle had revealed why her hubby, Akshay isn’t allowed to make coffee at home anymore. Sharing a picture of Akshay, holding a coffee cup, Twinkle’s witty caption could be read as “Writers need caffeine almost as much as pencils require graphite. But… this is the reason why I have never asked him to make a cup of coffee for me again! #throwback #writerswoes.” (Also Read: When Akshay Kumar And Wife, Twinkle Khanna Won Everyone's Heart At Riddhima Kapoor Sahni's Wedding)
Even earlier, Twinkle Khanna had once given a glimpse of the dinner and dessert made by her young boy, Aarav Kumar and had written, "My teenager makes us dinner and dessert all by himself :) On the menu- mushroom risotto, miso avocado salad, chicken skewers and chocolate souffle. #proudmomma." While Aarav had donned the chef’s hat during the lockdown, his baby sister, Nitara had picked up her makeup brush to give a makeover to her mom, Twinkle. The doting mommy had posted her lockdown special ‘makeover’ by her little one, and had captioned it as "The little one has given me a fine makeover. Brows on fleek and all that jazz. @namratasoni watch out-you have some serious competition! #grouchomarxeyebrows."
On September 15, 2019, when Aarav Kumar had turned 17, Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar had posted a dashing picture of their teenage boy with heartfelt wishes. While Akshay had written, "One thing which I learnt from my father was if I ever mess up,he’d be my go-to person instead of ‘Oh no!Dad’s going to kill me.’ Today, being on your speed dial makes me feel I’m doing it right.. I’ll always be beside you to guide you. Happy birthday Aarav." Twinkle had captioned the same picture as “Happy birthday! ‘Flesh of my flesh and blood of my blood’ I know that you have always said ‘Mom stop saying these weird things! ’ but it is the truth, you have my cells and I have yours -leftovers hanging around in my brain or at least that’s what science claims :) #birthdayboy #thebest.”
In an interview with the NDTV, Twinkle Khanna had revealed that her son, Aarav Kumar often teases her for her movies. Twinkle had said, "Lately, my son has started doing a nasty thing, where he keeps replaying this one scene he's got on YouTube, where I'm apparently kissing some man's nipple. And he keeps showing me this again and again and he keeps making these jokes! And yeah, so, I actually think I should, I don't know, blind myself or blind him. I'm not sure which!"
