Genelia D'Souza: Akshaye makes environment very comfortable
She is extremely excited with her comeback and that too with bigwigs like Paresh Rawal, Akshaye Khanna, Om Puri and above all the director Priyadarshan. However, initially the pretty lady was quite apprehensive to work with the seasoned players of Bollywood. Her preliminary perception about Akshaye Khanna was that of an intense and reserved person, who would not be that comfortable to work with.
However, her perception cleared when she experienced a complete different set of behavior on the sets of MERE BAAP PEHLE AAP. On the contrary she was very well treated. The cheerful actress infact admitted that "Akshaye is a no-nonsense person who shares a very good rapport with all his co-stars. He makes the environment comfortable for his co-stars." Genelia also mentioned that it was Akshaye who helped her during the difficult scenes of the movie. Many a times it happened that Priyadarshan, the director of MBPA, would not be around but it was Akshaye who made her comfortable at all times. Not once did she feel as a newcomer in the midst of seasoned actors.
