Mumbai: Once again media bore the brunt of fuming celebs as a scribe tried to act funny with the Khiladi of Bollwyood, Akshay Kumar. Akki who is otherwise sober with media persons, took a u-turn as a journalist’s question struck him too hard to handle.
The story goes when Akshay along with the cast of his next film ‘Thank You’ graced the wedding of two couples as a promotional gig recently. All was well, until a media person present at the venue asked director Anees Bazmee, "You have written and directed the film. But who writes the film`s publicity script?" To which Akshay said, "The film`s publicists."
The journalist in one of his whims then cheekily asked, "So, if you have a murder mystery tomorrow, will you organise some sort of a murder?" This rubbed Akshay the wrong way and he fumed, "Do you think these marriages are fake? Have you come here for a walk? Do you know anything about these couples?"
"I have just come back from Chandigarh and got to know about them. Actually, they wanted to have some big stars attending their weddings," said Akki before handing the mike to one of the grooms.
The groom further revealed, "When we were having our court marriage, we dreamt of having some stars for our wedding. Luckily my aunt had a contact in UTV and it was made possible. I still can`t believe stars have come to our wedding."
Akshay, now in a much saner avatar, added, "This isn`t a publicity stunt. It was just a coincidence that their wedding happened during the same time as our film`s promotion. We got a call from UTV and we are here. If we have made a mistake, please forgive us."
People seek apology only when they are wrong, so why ask for forgiveness, right Akki!
