Mumbai: Indo-Canadian stand-up comedian Russell Peters, who has been on a “Bollywood slamming” spree, had poked fun at Aishwarya Rai’s acting skills. Peters did not limit his comments to her acting caliber but even made lewd remarks on her pregnancy.
The comedian was in India as Akshay Kumar’s guest to celebrate `Speedy Singhs` launch in the country. Akki drew flak from Ash’s fans for not intervening and showing Peters his limits. But helpless Akki could do little to stop him from saying what he wanted to as the motor mouth was his guest.
So Akki thought it was best to ring up Abhishek Bachchan (Ash’s husband) and apologise on behalf of Russell.
Talking to a daily, a source revealed, “As Russell was his guest, Akshay felt he should say something. Abhishek and he spoke, and Abhishek told him that he did not feel Akshay was at fault in anyway, and that Peters should be the one to apologise.”
Akshay and Aishwarya have shared a great chemistry on screen and have been mutual well-wishers. Its good that Akki took the onus of saying sorry to Ash even when he wasn’t at fault to ensure his friendship with the Bachchan parivaar doesn’t go for a toss for someone else’s mistake.
Well done Akki!
