Vipul Shah's WAQT-THE RACE AGAINST TIME, scheduled to release this week, will see Akshay Kumar with one of his prized possessions, his sports bike, which the actor specially decided to use in the film. Akshay is said to have insisted on using the bike for a few scenes in the film, after he was deeply touched by some of the scenes in the film, depicting the emotional bond between a father and son. The bike, which was gifted to him by his father at one point of time, brought fond memories of his father. Reportedly the actor would sorely miss his father every time he would do an emotional scene with Bachchan, who plays his father in the film. He then decided to bring his sports bike to revive those great moments that he had once shared with daddy dearest.
It may also be recalled that a few months ago Vipul Shah had tied up with Archies to release a range of Father's Day cards, with Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar, talking about the deep bonding between a father and son.
