Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar on Friday shared an adorable photo of his 75-year-old mother performing yoga on the fifth International Yoga Day. Within hours of Akshay sharing the photo, his post went viral.
While sharing the photo, Akshay wrote, “Sharing something I’m extremely proud of…post her knee surgery at the age of 75, my mother started doing yoga and now it is part of daily routine, improving one day at a time.”
Among those liking and commenting on Akshay’s post was his wife Twinkle Khanna, who posted an emoji, indicative of throwing a kiss. Other users too reacted to Akshay’s mother doing yoga with red heart emojis. One user wrote, “One of best pic ever. (sic)” “An inspiration. like mother like son,” wrote another fan. One user commented, “Whole family is fit.”
International Yoga Day celebration was the brainchild of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Since he came to power in 2014, 21 June has been marked as International Yoga Day. Akshay personally shares a very good camaraderie with Modi and was invited to interview the prime minister just before this year’s Lok Sabha polls.
Akshay Kumar was recently in the news after BJP supporters trolled Rohit Shetty, the director of his next year’s big release Sooryavanshi incessantly. They were visibly angry over Shetty agreeing to change the release date of Akshay-starrer film to accommodate Salman Khan’s Inshallah, which is scheduled to be released on Eid next year.
Such was the intensity of the protest by his fans that Akshay had to issue a desperate appeal to calm them down.
