Mumbai, Sep 9 (IANS) It will be family time for Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar when he ushers into a new year of his life Thursday.
The actor, who turns 43, Thursday is planning to spend time with his family on his birthday.

Akshay, who is married to Twinkle Khanna, has a seven-year-old son. He has appeared in over 90 Bollywood fims. He made his acting debut with the 1991 film “Saugandh”.
During the 1990s, Akshay acted mostly in action films like “Khiladi” (1992), “Mohra” (1994) and “Sabse Bada Khiladi” (1995), and was particularly known for his appearances in feature films commonly called the “Khiladi Series”.
