These days, star kids are hogging more limelight than their celebrity parents. Late veteran actress Sridevi‘s daughter Janhvi Kapoor made her acting debut, Shah Rukh Khan‘s daughter Suhana Khan made her magazine cover debut and Saifeena’s Baby Taimur is still keeping the paparazzi on their toes.

So naturally, everyone is wondering if Khiladi Akshay Kumar‘s media-shy son Aarav Bhatia is going to enter the film industry or not? The ‘Gold’ actor was recently asked if his son is planning to become an actor, and he was quoted saying in DNA as, “I don’t know about others. As for Aarav, he is too young and currently, he is interested only in his studies. I’m not aware if he will get into the industry. I’m not pushing him. Today’s children have a mind of their own. My son is no different. Once he wraps up his studies here in Mumbai, he wants to go to a school in London, which he has already selected. I let my kids be the way they want to be.”

This is the way I was brought up. My father realised that I wasn’t inclined towards studies but was interested in sports, so he inspired me to pursue what I liked. It was due to my father that I went to Bangkok to learn Martial Arts.  At that time, I didn’t know that I would end up in films as a khiladi.” the actor added.

Talking further about his style of parenting, Akshay told the daily, “With my son, my job is simple. I let him do whatever he wants. If he feels a particular school is good for him, he checks out its website, fills the form and completes the formalities by himself. My job is to sign as a guardian and just pay the money. It’s as simple as that. Not to forget, my wife, Tina, is also a fabulously responsible parent to both our kids.”

With their hands-on parenting style, Akshay and Twinkle are really setting parenting goals for every parent out there. And in future, if Aarav joins Bollywood post completing his studies then who would mind having a well-educated star in our film industry?
