Akshay Kumar shoots on a Sunday after 7 years
New Delhi: As a general rule Akshay Kumar doesn`t work on a Sunday, but he broke it to finish shooting of Milan Luthria`s ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2’.
Seven years ago the 45-year-old, also known as Khiladi Kumar, decided that he will not work on a Sunday and devote it to his family.
Last time Akshay worked on a Sunday was when he was shooting for Priyadarshan`s ‘Bhagam Bhag’ in 2006.
"Milan was not well, due to which the shoot was delayed for three days. So Akshay agreed to work on April 7 (Sunday) to make up for the lost time. Since this is the film`s last schedule, the makers can`t push it any further," said a source.
"The permission and availability of the shooting venue (at Ballard Estate in south Mumbai) is also a constraint," added the source.
Akshay and co-stars Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha started shooting at 7 a.m. on Sunday. They worked till the sun went down.
Confirming the news, Luthria said: "Yes, I have asked Akshay for a big favour (by making him work on a Sunday). But what we shot on April 7 is a interesting sequence. I haven`t told him yet, but I need him to work next Sunday too."
The upcoming movie is a gangster romantic thriller, a sequel to 2010 hit ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai’.
It is being produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor and is scheduled for an Aug 8 release.
