Even the land of the Pharaohs was excited about welcoming the ‘Kinng’, Akshay Kumar!
Recently, when Akshay and Katrina were in Cairo to shoot the ‘Jee Karda’ song for the keenly anticipated Singh Is Kinng, the plush five-star property, Oberoi Mena House is said to have allocated the Presidential Suite for Kumar.
This was indeed a privilege because according to sources the suite is normally used for members of royalty, powerful dignitaries and international celebrities
The regally appointed Presidential Suite has a large private terrace and a view of the Pyramids. Guests in the Suite enjoy the privilege of private butler service and 24hour in-room dining. The tariff per night is upwards of Rs.70,000.
Remarks Akshay, “Egypt is one of the most splendid places I have shot in. Just make sure you leave good tips!” he laughs. “It’s my first time shooting there and a sardar singing a romantic song on a pyramid for a beautiful girl is definitely something that will go down in Singh history!”
The racy ‘Jee Karda’ song, shot in Cairo, goes on television today. Scored by Pritam, it has been penned by Mayur Puri and rendered by Suzie Q and Labh Jan Jua.
Singh Is Kinng is an Indian Films-Studio 18 release worldwide. It is out on August 8 with previews in select locations on August 7.
