Happy 18th birthday Aarav! Here is something I had written for you once and to keep loosening the strings and finally cutting them off this year has not been easy. All these years you have been as much my teacher as I have been yours. I learned optimism, kindness and wonder from you as I taught you maths, a few manners and how to switch the lights off when you leave the room. But looking at you growing up and listening to you repeatedly tell me how much you are looking forward to your independence, I have started realizing that when you finally leave my home, my world and step into your own, my lights will go off automatically and my world will be filled with a bleak darkness. Though whenever you return for a visit, I will light numerous diyas and pretend that this is not a permanent power failure; we are just celebrating Diwali. I am already missing the little boy you were but am so proud of the man you have become. #MamaBear #MoustacheMusketeers

One of the first people to comment on the post was Sikandar Kher- "How beautiful Tina ! Happy birthday to your Aarav..he is a very fine young man .. all my love." (sic)

Talking about his son in an interview with Bear Grylls recently on his show, this is what the actor had to say, "My son is very different. I mean, he just doesn't want to tell anyone that he's my son. He wants to be away from the limelight. He wants to have his own identity. That's what the whole thing and I understand it. So, I let him be the way he wants to."

Khanna made her Bollywood debut with Rajkumar Santoshi's Barsaat with Bobby Deol in 1995 and went on to act in films like Jaan, Zulmi, International Khiladi, Mela, Joru Ka Ghulam, Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai, Baadshah, and Love Ke Kiye Kuch Bhi Karega.

Coming to Kumar, he has a solid line-up of as many as seven films in the coming months. Starting from Sooryavanshi, he has films like Prithviraj, Laxmmi Bomb, Bachchan Pandey, Atrangi Re, Bell Bottom, and Raksha Bandhan coming up.

The actress is currently spending time with her family in Scotland, where her husband Akshay Kumar is shooting for his upcoming film, Bell Bottom.
