We all know that macho Akshay Kumar loves martial arts, but you won’t believe how he actually started practicing it and what made him take this up.
When asked Akshay the reason why he started learning martial arts, he first questioned saying, “Should I tell the truth or should I lie?” When requested him to tell the truth, he said, “If I say the truth then I started learning martial arts because of a girl. There was one friend of mine who used to learn Karate and impress her all the time. I was left behind and I said I will also have to learn now and I’ll also do it. I started learning it and then I started loving martial arts more than the girl. That is what happened. It became a habit and eventually it was fun. That is how I started and then it just went on and on.”
We appreciate you being this honest, Akshay. And thanks to that girl, we have Akki as one of the best action heroes in this industry today!
