Akshay scared of dance, says Prabhu Deva
Filmmaker Prabhu Deva, who directed Akshay Kumar in hit film “Rowdy Rathore”, says the latter is comfortable with action and acting, but he feels stressed out when it comes to dancing.
Prabhu Deva made the startling revelation about Akshay on UTV Stars’ “The Chosen One”.
He had to assign and judge a task for young contestants on the show, and in the meantime, he narrated interesting anecdotes straight out of the sets of “Rowdy Rathore”.
That’s when he told the contestants about Akshay’s apprehensions about dance.
He said the actor remains stress free as long as he doesn’t have to shake a leg. But when asked to groove, he used to hardly talk.
In fact, Prabhu Deva said he had to indulge in pep talks with Akshay before shooting any dance sequence.
The filmmaker, an accomplished dancer himself, said that Akshay used to say: “Everything else is fine but when the song starts and I have to shake myself, I go blank! It really scares and stresses me!”
Abhishek’s ‘jalebi bhai’ moment!
Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, a foodie, pampered his taste buds by gorging on Gujarati delicacy Jalebi Fafda on the sets of “Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma”.
The “Bol Bachchan” star was on the sets of the show to promote the forthcoming movie, and was treated to a variety of food items.
Lead actress Disha Vakani, who essays Daya Ben in the comedy, offered Abhishek some Jalebi Fafda, and he was enthusiastic about trying it.
He not just ate it all alone, he went around with the dish and took the food tray to everyone personally. He also made sure everyone on the sets tasted it, including the staff and the technicians, said a source.
“Daya Ben couldn’t believe that Abhishek actually loved her Jalebi Fafda and was overwhelmed with his humble behaviour,” the source added.
