Akshay Kumar: Some of my favourite films are with Vipul Shah

The time has come for Akshay Kumar and Vipul Shah to take their relationship forward - both personally and professionally. With HOLIDAY being their fifth film together after WAQT, AANKHEN, NAMASTEY LONDON and ACTION REPLAYY, this is one Jodi which is pretty much for the keeps.
'Well, I wouldn't call us a Jodi as we are more like lifelong friends with business benefits, if you can get what I mean,' winks Akshay who has explored various genres with the filmmaker ever since he made his transition from theater to films with AANKHEN.
'See, we make lovely films together and have this passion to go all the way and create some beautiful and memorable cinema. I have probably made more of my absolute favorite films with Vipulji, than any other,' Akshay gets nostalgic here.
What is further noticeable about HOLIDAY is that Vipul has gone all out in marketing the film. So much so that active promotion of the film has been on for four months now.
'That's what I love about Vipulji,' promptly says Akshay, 'He has a brilliant business sense, which is why he is such a good producer and filmmaker. He knows how to sell his product and treats every film that he makes with a different perspective. This is the way it should be and he does it perfectly well.'
With A.R. Murugadoss coming on fold as a director, one hopes that this perfection indeed shows on screen too, once the film hits the screens tomorrow.
