French Riviera is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world, the fact that Cannes is located there does help in its promotions, as every year celebrities from Hollywood, Bollywood and other film industries around the world attend its prestigious film festival. Of late several Bollywood celebrities have been making a presence at Cannes to promote their films. But there are many Bollywood actors who’re also choosing to holiday in the French Riviera.
Akshay Kumar in the French Riviera
Its a known fact that Akshay Kumar loves to spend time with family, and the Khiladi takes several vacations a year. Akshay was recently found holidaying in the French Riviera, along with his wife Twinkle Khanna. Akshay and Twinkle were on an extended holiday in Europe (the Khiladi Kumar will return and start promoting his upcoming film “Brothers”).
While tourists love to soak in the sun in its beautiful beaches, Akshay, who’s a fitness freak, posted a picture of himself climbing ropes on the sea in “Khatron Ke Khiladi” style. “My idea of fun…climbing some ropes at the French Riviera 🙂 It’s a top of the world feeling indeed! #sportsjunkie,” he posted.
The couple went on long drives and extensively explored the Riviera. “And the holiday begins…loving driving around the picturesque Antibes in Nice, great view and even better company :)” posted Akshay, with a picture of him and Twinkle few days back.
