From Taimur, Inaaya, AbRam to Akshay Kumar‘s son and daughter Aarav and Nitara, every star kid is the cynosure of the paparazzi. Their cute pictures always brighten up our day; all thanks to the photographers who manage to click pictures of these star kids no matter what the time is. But sometimes, the star kids fall prey to criticism on social media.

Akshay Kumar, the father of two while talking to Hindustan Times has spoken about his kids getting clicked and becoming objects of criticism. When Akshay was asked if he’s comfortable when his children get papped in public without his consent, the actor said that it breaks his heart to hear when his six-year-old daughter says she doesn’t want to go for dinner with her family because the paparazzi will be present there as she doesn’t like the flashing lights.

Akshay also said that even his son Aarav doesn’t want to go for a movie after he finishes his training because he doesn’t want people saying he looks tired or sweaty on Instagram. “I really don’t blame them. Us as stars may have signed up for this but until our kids decide to be in any form of the limelight after college years, then I don’t think they should be publicly followed or scrutinised, out of safety for them physically and mentally. Again, that’s my opinion and like I teach my kids, it’s your choice whether or not you choose to be offended by what others say,” said Akshay.

When Akshay was asked about Aarav being trolled, he said that if anyone tries to exploit kids without permission for their own gain might need to take a hard look in the mirror and ask themselves ‘would they want anyone to do this to their own children’?

He further said that trash-talking anyone under 21 should be illegal. “It’s sad that such a great and powerful technology such as social media, is tainted by people wanting to hurt, mock, humiliate or just insist on throwing opinions with no fear of the damage such hate can cause the youth. All we can do as parents is, teach our kids to be thick skinned and pity those that have the time to hurt others. Star kids have enough pressure in life; the world doesn’t need to increase it by trolling innocent children,” said the ‘Mission Mangal’ actor.
