“I was worried that my parents would be extremely upset and angry with me because I had flunked a paper. When I showed my report card to my parents, my father asked me what I wanted to do in life. I said I want to do sports. So, he said I can do sports and they will support me but have to continue studies too. I never knew that after sports, I would be drawn to martial arts, then modelling and acting happened. If that day my parents would not have made me understand my strengths, I would not have won this National Award nor I would have understood the reason I have it," Akshay said in the video.
