Akshay Kumar And Ranveer Singh Share Screen Space Together For The First time

Akshay Kumar, forget about Deepika bearing with Ranveer for the rest of her life. What about you bearing with this flamboyant flamingo for an hour?

Big relief and huge applause. The second episode of the new season of Koffee With Karan was way superior to the bland and aimless first episode, probably because Akshay Kumar and Ranveer Singh share a genuine kinship and were not faking it.

Not for a second.

Ranveer was the fanboy. Akshay was the older wiser superstar. Roles taken.

Their shared anecdotes did not preclude the viewers. Both Akshay and Ranveer are people’s persons, not afraid to come across as full-blooded desi Punjabi boyz(with a ‘z’ if you please).

Yes, some portions of the chat did come across as forced. The Rapidfire for example sounded too rehearsed. Some of the answers lacked spontaneity except when Karan Johar, forever in pursuit of a sensational quote, asked Akshay during the rapidfire whom he thought to be “hot” besides his wife.

“I think Deepika is hot,” Akshay asserted while Ranveer nodded approvingly.

The absolute comfort-level between the two actors, such a contrast to the phoney bonhomie between Deepika and Alia last week, won Karan’s two guests hampers full of approval from us.

It is interesting that Ranveer met Akshay for the first time when he was 8. Ranveer, not Akshay.

A word on the wardrobe. Ranveer’s not Akshay’s. He wore what looked like florid curtains stripped and stitched into trousers and vest coats.

Apparently the outfit was a gift to Ranveer from Karan.

With friends like Karan Johar, Ranveer doesn’t need enemies. Akshay for all the masti, behaved and responded with a lot of ‘thehrao’. His answers were not meant to be juicy headlines. They came from the heart.

I remember having a conversation with Akshay some time back on how much effort it takes to come across as a nice person constantly.

“None at all. Because I am not trying,” Akshay replied.

On Sunday night I could see what he meant. The benignity is an integral part of his nature.

When Karan playfully set out to determine who is the better human being between his two guests, I knew the answer immediately.

You deserved the hamper for that. (IANS)

Actor Akshay Kumar says people need to put more emphasis on sports in India.

“As a country, we need to put more emphasis on sports. Each person should take up at least one sport in their life, even if it is just a hobby,” Akshay said in a statement.

“A person has a hidden passion for at least one sport but it’s the lethargic feeling that stops you from doing it. I read a beautiful line that says, ‘Jahan ke maidan bhare hote hai, wahan ke hospital khaali hote hai’. (The fuller the playgrounds, the emptier the hospitals). I want more films to be made around sports. Winning golds in the Olympics is not very difficult for our nation, if only we put our heart and soul in it,” he added.

He has been part of movies like “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha”, “PadMan”, “Airlift” and “Gold”, which will air on Zee Cinema on Sunday.

What makes him pick movies with a strong message?

“What pushes me towards making such films are genuine real-life stories. I only got to know about the amazing story of the first Olympic Gold medal India won when I heard the script of ‘Gold’ and I got to share it with the rest of the world through this movie.

“It is all about the struggle our people had to go through for their achievement. Today, the viewers want to see the story of an extraordinary person that inspires them to achieve extraordinary things.” (IANS)
