New Delhi: Bollywood’s ‘Khiladi’ Akshay Kumar, known for his down to earth nature, shared a video on Tuesday, which proves that he is a doting son as well.

The actor shared a video where he can be seen strolling on the streets of London with his mother Aruna Bhatia on a wheelchair.
Giving out the message of giving some time to family, he wrote, “Juggled shoot to spend a few days with mom in London. No matter how busy you are with life and growing up, don’t forget they are also growing old…so spend time with them while you can.”
The actor, who is more closed to his mother, shared her picture sometime back informing about her condition. In the picture, she can be seen performing yoga after her surgery.
“Sharing something I’m extremely proud of…post her knee surgery at the age of 75, my mother started doing yoga and now it is part of daily routine, improving one day at a time.”
