Action star Akshay Kumar and his current leading lady Sonakshi Sinha who set the cash registers ringing at the box office with their livewire performances in ROWDY RATHORE, have been engaged in a tiff lately. Akshay is now at the receiving end of Sonakshi's ire.
SONAKSHI-AKSHAY FIGHT PIC
According to insiders, both stars who are fitness freaks and keep themselves up to date with the latest fads in health and wellbeing, have been seen squabbling over a new, particularly intriguing habit of Akshay's. Apparently, Bollywood's khiladi no. 1 has taken to drinking! And that's one habit Sonakshi, his co-star in two of his upcoming films totally and wholeheartedly disproves of. Now don't get us wrong, Akshay's still a tea-totaller!
Apparently, the action star's been drinking cup after cup of tea during, between and after his shoots. A recent convert to tea-drinking, he instructs his trusted assistant to bring a whole flask of piping hot tea, to the sets every day. Akshay, who has a strictly regimented exercise routine that includes martial arts, jogging and swimming has now added not less than a couple of cups of tea to his schedule and insists that he is going to convert Sonakshi, into a diehard tea drinker.
Sonakshi on the other hand pooh-poohs the idea and calls him crazy. She says, "Me and Akshay often exchange and share health and fitness tips, but this is crazy. He guzzles tea like he's guzzling water and goes on and on about its health benefits...I don't believe him at all. Once while shooting for a song, he dropped me in the middle of a step because he wanted his hourly fix of tea. Can you imagine that?"
Akshay, in his defence, retorts, "Arre bhai! You just wait and watch! This Khiladi never bogs down before a challenge. In no time, will I have her drinking masala chai out of a kulhar."
