Shreyas Talpade supports Akshay; criticizes rumours against him

There was a time around a decade ago when there were murmurs around Akshay Kumar sitting during the editing of his films and ensuring 'healthy cuts' so that the film's continuity could be maintained and it didn't lose focus. It is a different matter that some of his co-stars weren't overtly pleased with the outcome, more so since they felt that they were being short-changed. However just like every storm, this one too settled down over a period of time, what with Akshay continuing to work in many a multistarrer and his co-stars no more complaining. Same holds true for his partner of two films, Shreyas Talpade, as well.
"After working with him in HOUSEFULL 2 and now JOKER, I am rather surprised that people made such accusation at one point in time. I think it was all rumour. I wasn't short-changed in HOUSEFULL 2 despite he as well as John (Abraham) and Riteish (Deshmukh) being there. Now even for JOKER I haven't seen him snipping around parts of others. I think it was just some ideal mind at play who spread these rumours because I truly feel that Akshay is a great guy to work with. There has been absolutely no problem while sharing screen with him and everyone has enjoyed his or her place under the sun," says Shreyas.
For someone who has been a part of many big money spinning multistarrers like GOLMAAL series as well as OM SHANTI OM, Shreyas maintains high regard for Akshay.
"Whenever he is on sets, you just cannot get bored. He constantly keeps doing something. Either he would be playing pranks or sharing jokes. He is someone who is 'being positive' personified. Period," he comments.
Here is hoping that this positive spirit finds its presence in JOKER as well which is all set for 31st August release.
