Some duos just spell magic at the box office and one such is the teaming of comic ace director Priyadarshan and the actor with impeccable comic timing Akshay Kumar.
The two who share a great equation came together again to shoot for an advertisement for Manappuram Gold Loan .Akshay Kumar who plays a simple man in the advertisement directed by Priyadarshan was faced with a certain predicament during the shoot of the ad.
The team just couldn't find the perfect pair of glasses that would complete Akshay's look for the ad, that's when the director stepped in and offered Akshay his pair.
Very few know that Priyadarshan has never parted with his glasses and this was the first time he lent them to someone.
Reveals a source, "Priyanji has never parted with his glasses however while settling on a pair for Akshay's look in the ad, he insisted that Akshay wear his glasses .Akshay was very touched with his gesture."
Priyadarshan who has often praised Akshay Kumar as being the actor with the best comic timing recently also said, "I've seen Akshay Kumar grow from HERA PHERI to KHATTA MEETHA, where I can proudly say that he has become an actor on par with anyone else you can compare him to .His body language, emotions, dialogue delivery, and comic timing have been impeccable with enough realism and subtlety to them."
