Akshay Kumar in Namestey London
Bollywood's action man, Akshay Kumar, simply cannot keep away from Hindi film stunts.
Akshay recently went to Germany to recuperate from an ailing back problem by using hydrotherapy treatment. But as soon as he landed in Mumbai, he was back to work in the studios shooting for the film, Action Replayy.
What's more, the shoot consisted of action scenes involving dangerous bike rides.
Refusing to use a stunt double, Akshay went ahead to shoot for an action sequence involving jumps from one speeding bike to another, under the watchful eye of the film crew. Despite the pain, a dedicated Akshay completed the scene without any problems.
Action Replayy is being directed by Vipul Shah of London Dreams (2009) and Namastey London (2007) fame. The film is a time travel tale based on Mumbai back in the 1950s.
Expected to release this summer, Action Replayy also stars Aishwarya Rai, Neha Dhupia and Randhir Kapoor.
