Mumbai: Bollywood action hero Akshay Kumar recently had to cancel his promotional trip for ‘Tees Maar Khan’ to Dubai because of a niggling back problem. As a result, Katrina had to go alone and promote their upcoming flick.

Buzz has it that Akshay has been on a hectic schedule for the past couple of weeks and was quite busy with the non-stop promotion of ‘Tees Maar Khan’, which took him to various parts of India - Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Amritsar and Ludhiana.

Apparently, Akshay returned from Amritsar on Monday and rushed for his Dubai flight next day. However, the actor had to go for an urgent MRI check-up for his back, which stalled his flight for the next morning.

Talking to a daily, a source confirmed the reports and said that constant travelling strained Akshay’s back. Even as the star was advised rest, Akshay left a day after for London, New York and Toronto.

“The MRI tests were normal. Akshay`s back had to be put in traction for a day to be aligned. The constant travelling had put severe stress on his spine,” added the source.
