“Who said being an actor was a cake walk?” tweets khiladi Akshay Kumar while shooting for an action sequence for Thank You, in less than 2 degrees temperature. This was last week, after which the star came back to Bombay for a special cast and crew screening of Housefull (Pics), that releases this Friday.
Akki is a very busy man these days: between shooting several films and promoting Housefull, spending time with his wife Twinkle and son Aarav and shooting for ads. Here’s a lowdown on what one of the most loved Bollywood stars has been up to over the last few days…
Just after he finished the finished shooting for Priyadarshan’s Khatta Meetha, Akshay flew to Vancouver, Canada, on a week-long shooting schedule for his second home production, Anees Bazmee’s Thank You.
Akshay will also be seen romancing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Vipul Shah’s Action Replayy. Buzz is that Akshay is all set to do a cozy number with Mrs Bachchan, dedicated to famous screen couples of the 70s.
In midst of all this action, the 42-year-old actor makes sure that he doesn’t miss his daily swim at a Bombay five-star and his thrice-a-week visit to the gurudwara. He also made it a point to be with wife Twinkle at the launch of her holiday line (Pics).
Akki, who’s wielding the bat in Nikhil Advani’s Patiala House, caught up with the IPL fever on Sunday by watching the IPL Mumbai Indians – Chennai Super Kings tie with family and friends: Housefull’s director Sajid Khan and producer Sajid Nadiadwala, wife Twinkle, his sister Alka, Tees Maar Khan’s director Farah Khan, Shirish Kunder and Ritesh Deshmukh.
As far as films are concerned, Housefull is Akshay’s first release of 2010. While the actor had five releases last year (Chandni Chowk To China, 8×10 Tasveer, Kambakkht Ishq, Blue and De Dana Dan), there’s reason for his fans to celebrate as the actor has another five films scheduled to release this year, Housefull (April 30), Action Replay (June) Khatta Meetha (June 18), Patiala House (November) and Tees Maar Khan (December 24).
Looks like Akshay Kumar fans have a lot to look forward to, this year.
