Akshay Kumar, who is all set to play a cricket loving don, Shoaib, in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara, is translating his frenzy for the game in real life too. The actor who was vacationing in New York with family flew down to Birmingham to watch the ICC Championship Trophy match between India and Pakistan at Edgbaston Ground there. The actor used it as a perfect cue to promote his upcoming film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara, in which he plays a don who apparently is involved in the match fixing schemes ala Dawood Ibrahim’s influence over cricket betting in India.
While speaking to the audiences in Edgbaston stadium, the actor said, “It is always interesting to see match. To see both the countries fight on the field is quite exciting. The experience was good… it was fun.” (As reported by a leading daily)
Kumar, who has been extremely excited about his latest endeavor, tweeted saying, “Once Upon A time In London for Ind vs Pak match couldn’t help but take a detour from my holiday to witness this eventful game.”
Akshay’s upcoming film OUATIMA is now going to release on 15th August, 2013, that was earlier going to clash with SRK’s Chennai Express. Directed by Milan Luthria and produced by Balaji, the film is going to be one of the year’s biggest releases!
