New Delhi, March 27, 2017: Actor Akshay Kumar, who is trained in martial arts, says girls should not panic if touched inappropriately. They should instead hit back.

Akshay, along with the team of his forthcoming film “Naam Shabana” — co-actors Manoj Bajpayee and Taapsee Pannu and producer Neeraj Pandey — visited the Gargi College for women here on Monday morning.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

Here, Akshay spoke extensively on the importance of women knowing self-defence techniques.

“In our country, I believe, girls should not learn martial arts or self-defence because I feel they should be free to walk anywhere, anytime, anyplace. But unfortunately, because of some dirty people they have to learn self-defence,” Akshay said.

“I am running a school in Mumbai and I want to open one school here (in Delhi) but I don’t know when it will happen. I just want to tell you one thing — if a guy touches you, then don’t panic, in fact, hit him back and run,” he added.

The 49-year-old actor says that a man is successful in harassing a girl when she “freezes” and doesn’t react.

“What happens in life — How does a guy succeed in harassing a girl, to get her under control? Because a woman or a girl freezes. She doesn’t know when a man touches her, she doesn’t know what to do. So don’t ever freeze, just shout… That is the biggest thing, just shout loudly and run, but don’t freeze,” Akshay said.

Akshay is known for his work in action-packed films like the “Khiladi” series as well as other action films such as “Mohra”, “Elaan”, “Suhaag”, “Rowdy Rathore” and “Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty”.

As a promotional step for “Naam Shabana”, Akshay and Taapsee had also posted on social media a video teaching self-defence techniques to girls.

“Naam Shabana” is an action spy-thriller film directed by Shivam Nair and produced by Neeraj Pandey and Shital Bhatia under the Friday Filmworks banner.

A spin-off of the 2015 film “Baby”, with Taapsee reprising her role as Shabana, the film is releasing on Friday. (IANS)

Akshay Kumar, who features as the antagonist in the much-awaited, high-budget entertainer “2.0”, went through an elaborate prosthetic make-up process for his character. The actor says it was quite a test of his patience and that it has calmed him down.

“It was really a hard process for me to get the prosthetics done. For almost three and a half hours, I had to sit down quietly and do nothing. Three people used to work on my body and I had to stay patient…that was tough. I would say that the whole process of prosthetics made me a much calmer and patient person.

“I am already a patient person, but this made me more subtle and mellow at that time,” Akshay Kumar told a select group of media here on Monday.

The procedure used to not end there as the removal of the make-up required one and a half hours. The actor found it quite painful. In fact, Akshay Kumar had to stay on a liquid diet of water, smoothies and juices during his shooting schedule.

“When I used to go back home, I knew that I have to do the same thing again tomorrow morning. The make-up was so hard and covered that it used to close all the pores of my body and during my entire six hours of working, my body sweat used to not come out. So in the end when they used to remove the prosthetic, I had the smell of sweat,” shared the actor, who feels fortunate to have worked with iconic southern Indian filmmaker S. Shankar and with megastar Rajinikanth.

“I clicked a lot of selfies with my family. My wife and daughter were there with me. my daughter was quite excited to see me in the look and she was not scared at all…because she saw that some people are putting something on her father’s face. She was fine,” smiled the father of two children.
