Akshay Kumar would probably be B-town’s first father who has named his onscreen character after his son Aarav. Grapevine is abuzz that the name Aarav perfectly suits the character. And of course, Aarav’s name tattooed on Akki’s back is helping the actor to further establish the character as he has flaunted the tattoo in the film.
Says director Anthony D’Souza, “Akki agreed on being called by his son`s name as it gelled well. As he has tattooed the name on his back, it added to his character`s styling.” A close source says, “In Blue, Akshay`s character has shades of grey. When this aspect was pointed out to him and that he was being called Aarav, the actor laughed and quipped, ‘It’s only for a film’.” We hope your son’s name proves to be lucky for you Akki.
