Akshay Kumar runs into trouble with Canadian law
Mumbai: He is one of the biggest stars at home and is known for pulling off some of the most life-threatening stunts with élan but a little real life accident caused much trouble to Akshay Kumar.
The actor, who was recently in Canada for the shoot of his upcoming film ‘Thank You’, was fined by a cop after he ran into his car. Though the actor tried his best to get out of a traffic ticket while shooting, he ended up paying a heavy fine for the mishap.
Confirming the news a source said, “It was a simple shot where Akshay had to reverse his car and then move forward. The camera was set across the road to get a proper shot and the unit members were there too. There were a couple of retakes from different angles. Akshay did not realise that a cop had parked his car behind him. So while giving another take, Akshay hit the police car.”
What’s more is that the actor wasn’t even given a chance to explain his side. Before he could explain about the shoot and that it was part of the shot, the cop had cut a ticket.
“The cop refused to listen to Akshay. The unit saw the commotion and rushed to the other side, but the cop had already cut the ticket and demanded a fine. Akshay had no choice but to cough up the fine. The unit and director Anees Bazmee explained to the cop that it was for a shot.
The cop ended up laughing but he had already fined Akshay. He then spoke to everyone in the unit and even clicked a picture with Akshay on his cell phone. Akshay jokingly told Anees that this is his first ticket ever and he is sad that he got it in Canada and not India,” adds the source.
