UDITA GOSWAMI & AKSHAY KUMAR
After making a sizzling debut with Pooja Bhatt's PAAP, things did not quite live up to the expectations for the ravishing Udita Goswami. But now it appears that Udita's career is finally heading in the right direction. She has quite an impressive upcoming line up. But one film that she is very upbeat about is HELLO INDIA, in which she is paired for the first time opposite 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar!
The peaches and cream beauty is generous in showering praises for Akshay and says that working with Akshay was a delightful learning experience. One thing that impressed Udita most was Akki's down to earth, humble attitude and thorough professionalism. She elaborates that Akshay used to report five minutes earlier for shoots and never showed any attitude or starry tantrums. He was very warm and soft spoken, a thorough gentleman.
For those who are unaware, HELLO INDIA is the new title for producer-director Shabnam Kapoor's PURAB KI LAILA PASHCHIM KA CHAILA, a movie that was launched some ten years ago and was supposed to be the debut vehicle of Namrata Shirodhkar. It's the latest in the series of old and incomplete projects that Akshay Kumar has graciously decided to complete. Another reason to impress Udita!
Well, must say Udita, like many other actresses too has fallen for the charms of the unassuming 'Khiladi' and their pairing would definitely be worth a watch in HELLO INDIA, whenever it hits the screen.
