Mumbai, Aug 2 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) John Ruskin has said ‘I believe the first test of a truly great man is humility’, and when our very own ‘Khatron ka Khiladi’, Akshay Kumar, met up with his childhood friend, he passed this test with flying colors.
At a recent event to launch a magazine with Akshay and his wife Twinkle on the cover, the actor was pleasantly surprised to be presented with a childhood photograph of himself by his friend and his joy knew no bounds as he walked down the memory lane.
“I am very happy to see my friend and I am also glad to see this photograph of my school. I can’t tell you how excited and surprised I am about it,” stated Akshay modestly.
Akshay’s unassuming nature is a known fact and his friend not only confirmed that but also revealed how naughty and fun-loving Akshay was as a kid and still is.
Talking about their childhood moments, his friend said, “Rajeev (Akshay Kumar’s original name) was very naughty. I remember, once our teacher and principal called up his father to meet them, even at that time he was smiling as if nothing had happened.”
Humble and mischievous – now that’s a package only ‘Khiladi Kumar’ can portray at his best
