Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar’s younger sister, Alka Bhatia has shared one of the most important gift she has received from her brother, on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.
In the video, titled Direct Dil Se, Alka talks about how Akshay, before he became the superstar, imparted words of wisdom to her and how he silently took over their father’s responsibility after his death.
The actor’s sister says in the video, “Mummy-Daddy would insist that if I had to go somewhere far or attend a late night party then I’d have to ask Raju to accompany me. He would never go with me and always say, “Apna dhyaan khud rakhi.” And I would be like, ‘Why should I do it?’. We had to miss so many parties because of this.”
But she further says that when she decided to send her daughter Simar abroad and the little one asked if she’ll be able to manage. Well that’s when Alka understood the importance of Akshay’s words.
“My brother has given me and my daughter the greatest gift of our life – the strength to take care of ourselves. Thank you, Raju. I love you,” she said.
The brother-sister duo has always shared something special on Raksha Bandhan. Watch the video below:
