It’s action over talk for Akshay Kumar!
Actor Akshay Kumar’s latest release Joker may be nothing to write home about, but the actor, unfazed by the response, is already busy gearing up for his next release. And according to insiders, his upcoming film, Oh My God is special to the actor for more than one reason. “The film is Akshay’s production, so naturally he is very excited about it, but it is also special to him as he feels that the film will have a strong connect with the audience,” says the source.
The actor, who has been juggling between the film and the shooting of his action outing Khiladi 786, will apparently now only focus on OMG. Actor Paresh Rawal plays the protagonist in the film. Akshay, who will be seen playing Lord Krishna in the film in a rather flamboyant avatar. Sources say he believes helping someone in need is also a way of praying.
Says a source, “Not many know that Akshay has been making regular donations to help the cancer-afflicted patients and their families for over a decade now. He believes doing a good deed is far more important than donating money at temples or talking about God. Over the years, he has helped several causes too and continues to do so, but insists on keeping this side of him private.”
When asked, Akshay confirms it saying, “I just believe that God is in everyone, so if you help a person in need, it’s automatically like a direct connection to God.”
Meanwhile, the actor also happened to make a street urchin’s dream come true while shooting for the film. According to a unit member, Akshay was shooting for a special song, Mere Nishaan for OMG on the roads of South Mumbai, when they found a street urchin following him everywhere. “While shooting the song in different parts of town, we found that no matter where we went, a street urchin, Ambar kept following Akshay everywhere. And when one of us questioned her, she told us that she is a big fan of Akshay. So, when she came to know he was shooting in the vicinity, she left no stone unturned to catch a glimpse of him. She followed him all day long,” revealed the on-set source. “Finally when the news reached Akshay, he met Ambar and made the girl’s dream come true. She left happy and smiling and that made our song even more special in a way, as it’s all about the God’s vision of the world,” the source added.
