Akshay Kumar is on vacation in Cape Town, South Africa.

He kickstarted his holiday with a picture of daughter Nitara "meeting an old friend" -- Valentino 2.0. 

Valentino is the son of his house help in Cape Town. 

"Happiness Is... meeting an old friend and starting exactly where you left off :) Nitara meets Valentino 2.0," Akshay tweeted.  


Akshay had introduced Valentino to his Twitter followers last year.


After his holiday, Akshay will be promoting his upcoming movie "Pad Man." 

Pad Man has been described as a movie about a superhero who does not have superhero powers or wears a cape -- but who kicked off India's sanitary pad revolution. 

The movie is inspired by Arunachalam Muruganantham, also known as India’s “Menstrual Man”.

The school dropout-turned-welder invented a machine that makes inexpensive, sterilised sanitary pads, enabling low-income women to launch local businesses making and selling pads.

Akshay Kumar's wife Twinkle Khanna is a co-producer of the film. 

The movie will release on January 26.
