When mom Dimple warned Twinkle against ‘Gay’ Akshay
Twinkle Khanna said, "He (Akshay) had come to ask my mother if he should marry me. My mother and me were sitting together on this couch. He sat opposite to us and my mother's friend was there next to him. Akshay was doing some sort of Accupressure on her back...(bursts out laughing). My mom whispered to me, 'I have to tell you something after he goes'. I was like, no tell me now. She says,' Your friend Sandeep who is doing some piece on a newspaper says Akshay is gay'. And she has told me this while we are sitting there and this guy is doing Accupressure."
Akshay Kumar had to convince Dimple to let him marry her daughter. Twinkle Khanna revealed on the show that since her mother thought Akshay Kumar was gay, she advised her to live with him for a year.
Twinkle Khanna also opened up that she got married to Akshay because 'Mela' flopped.Akshay Kumar narrates the interesting incident, “Actually, I had asked her to marry me. She was very confident that Mela chalegi... I said 'Agar nahi chali toh?' She said 'Okay, then I'll get married to you'
Twinkle continues, “I called him on the Monday after the film's release and said 'I'll get married”.
Akshay and Twinkle have been happily married for the past 15 years and the couple is blessed with two children, Aarav and Nitara.
