Akshay Kumar to promote OUATIM 2 at IPL today

Hiren Kotwani (BOMBAY TIMES; April 3, 2013)


Contrary to reports that Shah Rukh Khan is using his clout at the Indian Premiere League (IPL) to ensure Akshay Kumar can’t promote his Eid release, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again (OUATIM 2), the latter will fly to Kolkata today for the opening ceremony and the inaugural match.

A box office battle was reported between the two after SRK scheduled his Chennai Express to open in theaters the same day. For the past few years, the Eid slot has been booked by Salman Khan. But this time, he has left the festive week vacant as his next film, Mental, isn’t likely to be ready for release by then. Ekta Kapoor, producer of OUATIM 2, also starring Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, had first announced an Eid release.

Dismissing reports of his film’s promotions not taking place at the IPL today, Akshay says, “I don’t believe anyone can curb anything. I don’t know where all these reports are coming from. I’ve always kept away from controversies, I’m only interested in making this film as best as possible. I don’t get into murky things; I work with a positive attitude in life.”

The actor adds, “I am going today to watch the first IPL match. I love cricket and the entire team of the film will be there.”

      yes instead of wasting his time at stadium seeing the face of SRK he held an press conference and after 1 hr he left for mumbai to complete his other assignment as he has work to do rather than jumping on the balcony of the stadium…!! :) :)

        just now aditya(a akshay fan) posted this article :


        here it’s clearly written
        “Akshay spent more than two hours watching the KKR vs Delhi Daredevils match from a box, hopping across briefly to the DD enclosure and even popping out to wave to his fans in a five-minute frenzy that shifted crowd — but not TV camera — focus from the Khan to the Kumar, from Gautam Gambhir to Imran Khan (Aamir Khan’s nephew, of course) and from Deepika Padukone to Sonakshi Sinha (a Salman Khan loyalist, dare we say).”

        so ur claim is totally wrong…..before writing you must verify …..akshay was very much in stadium …

          not to worry when i m here….will tell u the heading/title of this article by Aditya…

          “Highly Insecure SRK, using his PR and contacts against Akshay.”

          now got it…!!

          • rajeev singh said:

            i am agreeing srk used his contacts and he is insecure, and also that OUATIM2 will crush CE…..but the fact is what u commented in ur above comment is totally lie that he left for mumbai in 1 hr, though he was in stadium only , for more than 2 hrs and akshay tried to get some limelight, but insecure srk with the help of his contacts was able to stop him from coming even once on TV….

            1stly i don’t take all these articles seriously….
            2nd—he didn’t stayed in the Stadium for 2 hrs….
            around 5 pm he reached Kolkata at 6pm……
            then held an press conference at around 7:30 pm….

            and then after that went for stadium and reached there around 9 pm and left around 10 pm…..so….hedidn’t stayed there for 2 hrs….

            read my above comment carefully….i said…..“after 1 hr he left for mumbai to complete his other assignment as he has work to do rather than jumping on the balcony of the stadium…!! :) :)
