While Akshay Kumar may have had a reputation as a real ladies man before his marriage to Twinkle Khanna but he hasn’t let his skills in chatting up the fairer sex go to waste! No, he hasn’t been tom-catting around. The natural charmer was on location in the rural village of Malshej Ghat shooting for Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan, in which he plays a conman who falls for “lucky charm” Katrina Kaif, but had to take time out for a photo shoot for Filmfare magazine. Well, Akshay noticed a group of local women cutting grass and decided that it would be fun to get them to join him in the publicity pictures. The village belles were reluctant at first but after the sweet talking Khiladi broke out in respectful Marathi, they quickly changed their minds and had a wonderful time shooting photos, even matching Akshay in a couple of dance steps.
This multi-tasking of a photo shoot and a film shoot may seem impressive but that is nothing for our Khiladi who is currently doing promotions for Housefull and shooting for three films Tees Maar Khan, Action Replayy, and Thank You. And although you won’t get to hear Akshay speak Marathi in Housefull, the film will feature the multi-linguist Akshay speaking Punjabi while Deepika Padukone will speak Telugu, and Riteish will speak in Marathi. Chunky Pandey gets a comedy touch with Italian!
From one set to another, Akshay tweeted today, “Day 5 of Thank You begins at night…it’s gonna be a long day or should I say a I say a long night :)” With a good attitude and work ethic like that, we should see him bouncing back to the top of the box office in no time.
