When a lion scared off 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar
|SINGH IS BLIING|
When we met Akshay Kumar at SINGH IS BLIING promotions, we couldn’t resist asking him if he is trying a new stunt in SINGH IS BLIING too. To this Akshay Kumar replied, “Yeah, I’ve shot with a lion. I’m not fighting with him, but he is sitting in my car just behind me.”
Akshay then narrated an incident that happened with him. He said, “You won’t believe this incident which happened - the lion saw his own reflection on the windscreen and thought there was another lion. He got angry and hit the windscreen. The windscreen went flying and I ran away from him. A person there tried to convince me saying, ‘You are the Khiladi’ and I said, ‘Khiladi Gaya Tel Lene’ (To hell with Khiladi). A person from the crew then said, ‘He won’t harm you’ and I said ‘Main Jaa Hi Nahi Raha Uske Paas. Paagal Hai Woh. Maar Vaar Dega Kisi Ko. Film Ki Beginning Mein Meri Photo Aayegi Ki Bhaisaab Gaye The Sher Ke Saath Kaam Karne.’ (I’m absolutely not going to him. He’s mad, will kill someone. My photo will come in the film’s beginning claiming that I expired while working with a lion).”

Akshay later showed the media a very cute photo with ‘Nafasa’ (the good-looking lion) and even believed that we would fall in love with the lion (which was somewhat true).
“He’s a fully-grown lion, very lovable. But you are taking a risk sitting with him. Anytime, usko Zara Mood Nahi Kiya Aise Bhi Haath Kar Lega (if he’s not in mood and will swing his paw) and you’re gone,” added Akshay.
We’re just glad that ‘Khiladi’ Akshay Kumar took up the challenge and finally completed his shot with the lion. Maybe that’s what a good actor is like…
