Akshay Khiladi Kumar, who seven years ago decided that he will not work on a Sunday and devote it to his family, broke the rule of sorts for his upcoming film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again’s director Milan Luthria to finish shooting of the film.
Why? Well, it so happened, that Luthria was not well, due to which the shoot of OUATIM 2 was delayed for three days. Hence, Akshay agreed to work on April 7 (Sunday) to make up for the lost time. Moreover, it was the film’s last schedule and the makers couldn’t afford to push it any further.
Akshay Kumar and co-stars Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha started shooting at 7 a.m. on Sunday and worked till the sun went down.
Confirming the news, Luthria said, “Yes, I had asked Akshay for a big favour by making him work on a Sunday. But what we shot on April 7 is an interesting sequence. I haven’t told him yet, but I need him to work next Sunday too.”
Oh o! Seems the coming Sunday too will be another working day for Khiladi star.
Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again is a sequel to 2010 hit Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. It is being produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor and is scheduled for an Aug 8 release.
