He is 'Khiladi' Kumar and she is Mrs Funnybones, and together, they make for a perfect couple. Here is Akshay and Twinkle's love story.
By Shreya Sharma
Akshay had met Twinkle for the first time during the shoot of Filmfare magazine in Mumbai and had developed an instant crush on her.
It was during the shoot of their film, 'International Khiladi', when Twinkle had developed an interest in Akshay as a rebound from her failed relationship, and they had fallen in love.
In 2000, Twinkle was sure that her film, 'Mela' will work wonders on box office and had told Akshay that if the movie turned out to be a flop, she would marry him. Well, the movie was a big flop!
Before Twinkle Khanna, Akshay Kumar was linked with Rekha, Raveena Tandon, and Shilpa Shetty to name a few actresses. Akshay's wedding with Twinkle had stunned everyone.
Love between Akshay and Raveen had bloomed with the release of their film, 'Mohra' in 1994. They both had accepted the fact that they were engaged. In 1998, they had parted ways.
First, Akshay was reported to be dating Rekha and later, he had cheated on her with her best friend, Shilpa Shetty, and it was enough for Raveena to end things with him.
During the shoot of 'Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi' in 1996, Akshay was rumoured to be dating Rekha. Raveena had defended Akshay by saying that Rekha was after him and he was tolerating her.
The love between Shilpa and Akshay had blossomed during the making of 'Main Khiladi Tu Anari'. According to Shilpa, they had parted ways because Akshay was two-timing her with her BFF, Twinkle Khanna.
Twinkle had worn a yellow and purple suit with floral motifs and had accessorised her look with floral jewellery. Her 'henna' clad hands and feet were unmissable.
Akshay and Twinkle had an intimate wedding on January 17, 2001 at their designer duo friends, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla’s residence, amidst a gathering of just 50 people.
In 2002, Akshay and Twinkle had welcomed their first child, a baby boy, Aarav. Later, in 2012, they had welcomed a baby girl, whom they have named Nitara.
According to the reports of Republic World, Akshay’s net worth is around Rs. 1870 crore. Twinkle's net worth is expected to be around Rs. 348 crore. Their combined net worth is around Rs. 2218 crore.
