Akshay Kumar has always promoted healthy lifestyle over everything else and even this time he shared an essential parenting tip for all his fans by posting a video of his little daughter Nitara Kumar working out on Sunday morning.

The ‘Gold’ actor shared an adorable video of his little one exercising early morning, he captioned the video as, “Kids tend to pick up what they see…start early and try to set a good example. Great parenting. Active kids. #FitIndia.”

The doting father always makes it a point to follow a disciplined life and likes to mix different workout routines. This video is definitely a proof that not just him but his kids also follow the fit lifestyle religiously.
