Interesting stuff

He has inherited his father
Vinod Khanna's debonair looks, which make the girls go weak in the knees.

From Border, to Dil Chahta Hai to Race, Akshaye Khanna has experimented with different genres and left an indelible mark on the viewers' psyche, but it's his stunning looks and elusive air that make him oh-so-attractive to his female fans. As he comes calling to TOI office to promote his film Aakrosh, Akshaye waxes eloquent on bachelorhood, bullying and hairy issues...

'Commitment phobic? Yeah!'
Start the conversation on a ragging note and grill him as to why most of the eligible bachelors of B'town happen to be commitment-phobic, and pat comes the reply: "Yes, I'm commitment phobic! Children generally steer clear of matrimony if their parents are divorced. In my case, it's a different story! See, people mostly marry to have children, but I'm not too fond of kids, so even that's not reason enough to settle down. Moreover, to marry, you need to meet the right kind of person. When that happens, I'll probably take the plunge!"

Dude of a dad!
This intense actor refuses to bite the bait when you goad him a little or compare him with his dad. Ask him with women still going gushy over his dad, does it ignite sparks of jealousy, and he flashes his cherubic smile. "How can I feel jealous if somebody showers love on a member of my family? I only envy dad because he still has a head full of hair," says he in jest, referring to his receding hairline.

'Farah's one of the boys!'
Akshaye, who has Anees Bazmee's film No Problem lined up, is also working in Farah Khan's film Tees Maar Khan. Ask him how did it feel being bullied by a lady boss, and he replies nonchalantly: "Oh, Farah's one of the boys! She's mad, just like her films; a complete fun person without any hang-ups! So, it's great working with her!"

I think this is the first time we've heard him speak about his reasons for his commitment phobia.

Vinod might be launching Akshaye's half brother Sakshi into movies.


In 1997, Vinod Khanna launched his second son Akshaye in Himalaya Putra. Now, 13 years later, this star father is readying to launch his teenage son Sakshi from his second marriage to socialite Kavita Doshi.

There are reports that say that 19-year-old Sakshi was sent to the US to train as an actor. However, the boy came back to Mumbai mid-term saying he is home sick; and now Vinod has decided to enroll him in an acting school in Mumbai itself.

How does Sakshi look? A source says, "He looks as dashing as Vinod does. He is tall like his dad but has a dusky complexion like his mother." Sakshi is best friends with Karan (Rocky) Deol, who is Sunny Deol's elder son.

Besides Sakshi, the four other Bollywood star sons who are likely to become actors are, Rocky, Dharmendra's grand-son, Tiger Jackie Shroff's son, Rinzing, Danny Denzongpa's son and Chiranjeev, Ranjeet's son.

The buzz is that Ranjeet's son is a very good actor. And he is best friends with Rinzing and Tiger Shroff.
