Not all the stars love being mobbed by crowd or are comfortable to be surrounded by people. There are actors like Chitrangada Singh, who can't stand crowd or get cold feet when faced. Something similar happened while promoting the upcoming film DESI BOYZ when Chitrangada was dazed to come across a huge mass. However, all thanks to Akshay, Chitrangada's co-star, who came to her rescue and handled the situation with ease.
Akshay recalls the incident, "I remember we were on a promotion tour for DESI BOYZ and while promoting it in one of the cities we were mobbed by the crowd. I think Chitrangada, who comes from parallel cinema background, has never witnessed such huge crowd and power of commercial cinema is altogether different. Chitrangada was taken aback watching a crowd of 350 people around her. She was frozen and couldn't step ahead. When I looked back for her I found she's left behind. I immediately rush to her, hold her hand and brought her forward. While Deepika, who was also with us, walked with much confidence because she's used to it."
Akshay is highly mesmerized by his leading lady Chitrangada's beauty, who resembles late Smita Patil.
"Chitrangada is a very beautiful actress. She looks very desi with that dusky complexion and reminds me of late Smita Patil. She is a wonderful actor which she has proven also by winning awards. She's done lot of parallel cinema but DESI BOYZ is her first commercial film," ends up Akshay.
