With paparazzi’s focus growing on star-children by the day, their privacy is becoming a concern of sorts for celebrity parents. And Akshay Kumar feels no differently.

“Mere bachchon ke bahut kam (paparazzi) photos aatein hai, but honestly speaking, I don’t like it (children getting photographed) at all. That’s why I try and hide my children as much as possible,” he told Hindustan Times.

“I will never bring my kids in front of the camera on purpose. I don’t want to turn them into products of sorts. But if we go out and photographers happen to spot us, they can click pictures,” he added.

However, the Airlift actor is not unsympathetic towards photographers. Defending them, he said, “They click star kids’ pictures because they sell and newspapers, magazines print them. I am sure they aren’t doing it just for fun but because they get money for it.

“I won’t say that they are ‘troubling’ anyone because they have their own reasons for clicking such pictures. And I can totally understand because they get paid for those pictures. As long as lens-men are making money, I am fine with it. I don’t know how much money they get (for photos), but they work really hard and keep at it, even if it means standing (outside airports, restaurants or theatres) and waiting for a really long time,” he said.

“As far as I am concerned, I am personally all for it. In fact, I always readily pose for photographers and tell them to take good pictures,” he added.

On the professional front, Akshay will next be seen in a slew of interesting projects, including Housefull 4 and Kesari.
