MUMBAI: Mumbai’s Mithibai collegians were in for a real treat recently, when Akshay ‘Khiladi’ Kumar came knocking at their doors.
Akshay Kumar took the promotions for his upcoming film, ‘Khiladi 786’, to Mumbai’s Mithibai College. Accompanying him was his sexy Southern co-star, Asin. The duo had a rocking time at the college campus, and they were seen interacting with the students and faculty.
And the Khiladi Kumar timed his arrival in style too. Zooming in on a motorbike, the fearless action hero looked uber cool in a grey graphic-printed tee, blue jeans and a green scarf. His co-star Asin looked pretty in pink, in a bright anarkali churidar kurta set.
The actor is so in love with his look in the film that he reportedly even chose to wear the costumes of the film while dubbing. Akshay demonstrated his quirkiness via his unique style of dubbing for the film. At the dubbing studio, he opted to wear the same kurta and denims that he had worn during the film’s shooting.
The reason for this repeat ensemble being that the actor believes the uniformity of dress helps him get back into the character, given the long time lapse between shooting and dubbing. It is interesting to note that Akshay’s costumes were designed by director Ashish R Mohan’s wife. So maybe he was trying to show the director just how much he liked his wife’s work.
To which we react by saying: Whatever works, works! Let our heroes and heroines do whatever it takes, to give us a fantastic finishes product on celluloid.
Akshay Kumar returns to his famous Khiladi film series after 12 years. ‘Khiladi 786’ is all set to hit theatres on December 07, 2012.
