- Akhil Kutty’s real name is Akhil Nair. Talking about how he got the name of Akhil Kutty, he narrated,
My real name is Akhil Nair. Now Nair is not used. Instead of ‘child’. There is a story behind it. When I was studying at Neyyattinkara Polytechnic College, there were five or six Akhils in our batch, in many initials. I was more company with the seniors. They started calling me ‘kutty’ in front of my name so that I could recognize them quickly. I was the youngest of the ‘Akhil group’ in form and age. The first was ‘Koch Akhil’. It was later called and it became a ‘child’. With that, everyone in the college, including the principal and teachers, started calling him a ‘kid’. Teachers only called her ‘child’. Became a ‘kid’ for juniors.”
- Apart from being a comic actor, Akhil is also a graet dancer. His inspiration being dancing is Michael Jackson. During an interview, he said,
I would do a 7 minute solo dance performance by Michael Jackson. That’s what I did in college. Seeing that, they took me to the troupe as a dancer. Gradually I started collaborating on skits. By the next year, ‘Comedy Express’ had arrived. I came to the show as a replacement. I would do a 7 minute solo dance performance by Michael Jackson. That’s what I did in college.

- During the reality show Bigg Boss, a marriage proposal was made for Akhil, a popular member of the Bigg Boss household. Suchitra, Dhanya, Lakshmi Priya and Akhil were invited to the marriage proposal for Akhil. Suchitra was saying that there is a little boy sitting here expecting a hundred pawans, dear friends. Lakshmi and Dhanya said it was our own chicken. But Sooraj’s comment was that 100 sovereigns is not enough. Later, Suchitra teased Akhil by telling him not to buy this money by paying dowry. Akhil’s counter to this was that if you want, you can buy it if you get it on offer. Dhanya says that you can apply if you have good hair and wide lips like a good palm tree without any dowry. Suchitra also said that in that case, it may fall. Akhil was blushing when he heard this. Dhanya and Suchitra made fun of Akhil for pointing this out.
