Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna began their relationship during the filming of the action movie “International Khiladi” in 1999. They tied the knot in 2001 and have two children, Aarav and Nitara. Karan Johar, who attended the same boarding school as Twinkle during childhood, wrote a character named Tina in his film “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” with her in mind, but she declined the role, which was eventually played by Rani Mukerji. Akshay has collaborated with Karan’s production house, Dharma Productions, in several films. The couple also appeared together on an episode of Karan’s talk show, “Koffee with Karan” Season 5.
