Bollywood superstar, Akshay Kumar, has once again proved he is the “hit machine&” but this time on the cricket pitch with his latest sporting skills.
Akshay, who is currently shooting for his next film, Housefull, in London with a half British and half Indian crew, celebrated India’s Independence Day with a friendly cricket match between the Indian and British film crew members.
Leading his Indian team to victory, Akshay commented, “The Brits loved it and now want a rematch – just for a laugh. But it is moments like this when I realise how far we have all come now. There are some people who will always think that there are deep rooted hard feelings towards the Brits, but really there aren’t any at all! If anything, there are more Indians over here in England now than there were British in India.”
“For me, it’s not about divide and rule, or ‘I am free now, therefore I can do and act how the hell I want’. No, I feel free because I can cycle down the road in the very same country that ruled us once, with the wind in my hair and a smile on my face and not have a care in the world. That’s freedom to me!”
