Superstar Akshay Kumar recently attended the Vogue Beauty Awards. The Khiladi dressed in a prim black suit with hair combed neatly with a quirky tie that had a skull. He was also carrying a cane and looked dashing.
He was honoured as Man Of The Decade. Unlike other acceptance speeches the actor when he went up to accept his award gave a quippy speech written by his wife Twinkle! Yes, Mrs Funnybones known for her wit with words penned a speech for her husband and stole the limelight without being present at the event.
After receiving the Man of the Decade award at Vogue Beauty Awards 2017, Akshay said, “My wife has given me a speech. So I will have to say this. Bear with me. They say that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder but I say beauty is whoever let you hold her. I would like to thank Vogue for this award. To my overpaid trainer and my underpaid cook, a big thank you for helping me maintain this beautiful Man of the Decade Body which I have.”
He went on to add, “Though part of the credit should also go to the fact that I did not have two carry my two children for nine whole months. And thus my stomach did not have to stretch to elephantine proportions, and then deflate to a small paunch with stretch marks and saggy skin that no amount of dieting can eradicate.” The best was still to come: “It’s time for me to wind this up because it’s really not fair that I always reach home late, and I should not take anyone so much for granted. But before I leave I would once again like to thank my beautiful, talented wife,”
On the work front, Akshay is gearing up for the release of ‘Toilet Ek Prem Katha’, which also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Anupam Kher in pivotal roles. The movie is slated to hit the big screens on August 11.
