Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna are celebrating their 16th wedding anniversary. The two got married in 2001, and have two children, Aarav and Nitara.

Khanna posted a clip of the two running towards each other in the kitchen on her social media accounts. She captioned the video: "16 years of trying to kill each other and we still haven't succeeded. 16th anniversary. Partners in crime."

Previously, the 49-year-old actor had talked about the secret behind their strong relationship. He said: "Tina (Twinkle) is my best friend. My wife is the best person any man could wish to wake up next to. She holds me up when I'm falling, and puts me down when I'm flying. She makes me laugh when I'm sad, and moans when I am sitting idle. Tina is everything for me. She is my reality check."

Adding on, in 2014, Mrs Funnybones author revealed how he has supported her. She said: "He really believes in my capabilities as a person and that gave me a lot of confidence to switch jobs. Even today, if I do something new, he ensures he is a part of it. For instance, I have been writing a weekly column in a newspaper since a year now, but he still reads all my pieces before I submit them."
