On the occasion of Mother's Day, Akshay gets candid and showers Twinkle with praises.
"I want to tell her that the success of our family has always lain in her hands. It was never my success as a man, or as anything else for that matter. It is because Tina (Twinkle) has dedicated the last decade of her life to the best thing in both our lives, our children," Akshay said in a statement.
"She lives every minute of her life for them, while I only work every minute I'm not with them," added the actor known for hits like Namaste London and Special 26.
The couple, who tied the knot in 2001, have two children - son Aarav, 10, and over seven-month-old daughter Nitara.
Before tying the knot, Twinkle acted in Bollywood movies like Barsaat, Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai, Baadshah and Jodi No 1. She was last seen in 2001 movie Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega.
Akshay, 45, feels that mothers should be pampered around the year and not just on a particular day.
"My part is very easy. I take everyone out for dinner and pick up the bill. But I truly feel that the best thing anyone can do is to treat them (mothers) like it's Mother's Day every day. That's just it. Moms don't stop being amazing for even a day, so why should we stop being grateful? Happy Mother's Day for life, mom," he said.
The actor will soon be seen playing a gangster in director Milan Luthria's Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2.
