Actor Akshay Kumar, known as Bollywood's 'khiladi' following his on-screen daredevilry and his string of "Khiladi" films, says he would love to give the title to his 10-year-old son Aarav in future.

"I would give this title 'Khiladi' to my son after another 24 years," Akshay told reporters here Thursday during the trailer launch of his upcoming film "Khiladi 786".

He thanks filmmaker duo Abbas-Mustan, who were the first to give him the title of 'khiladi' with the 1992 film of the same name.

"When I first entered the industry, they were the ones who gave me this tag 'khiladi'. It is with me since then. After that, many films were made on 'khiladi' and this ('Khiladi 786 - Made in Punjab') is a 'khiladi' film I am doing after 12 years. So you can call this is a comeback film of 'khiladi'."

The 45-year-old's "Khiladi" series so far includes "Khiladi" (1992), "Main Khiladi Tu Anadi" (1994), "Sabse Bada Khiladi" (1995), "Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi" (1996), "Mr. and Mrs. Khiladi" (1997), "International Khiladi" (1999), and "Khiladi 420" (2000).

He also made his TV debut as the host of action-adventure reality show "Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi" in 2009.

Akshay, who recently became a father to a daughter, says he has to take his 'khiladi' tag very seriously off the screen as well, thanks to his wife, Twinkle Khanna.

"I don't have any choice! My wife is a very competitive woman. If I come last, I wouldn't be greeted very well when I come back home. My daughter is six days old. By the time she grows up, I will be 50 or 52, and that time I will have to compete with all other parents who are of 30 and again my wife is going to say I have to win.

"It's going to be a challenge for me," he added.

Meanwhile, Akshay is trying to chalk out as much time for his new little bundle of joy, as he can.

"I try to spend as much time possible (with her). As soon as I get done with my shooting and press conferences, I go and see her," the 45-year-old said.
