Akshay Kumar is known to play funny and easygoing characters on-screen. But off-screen, he’s a no-nonsense person. This was evident at the recently held promotional event of THANK YOU, where the cast of the film graced the weddings of two couples.
Everything was all right until a person from the media asked Anees Bazmee, “You have written and directed the film. But who writes the film’s publicity script?” Akshay took the mike and said, “The film’s publicists.” The journalist then cheekily asked, “So, if you have a murder mystery tomorrow, will you organise some sort of a murder?” This rubbed Akshay the wrong way and he fumed, “Do you think these marriages are fake? Have you come here for a walk? Do you know anything about these couples?”
“I have just come back from Chandigarh and got to know about them. Actually, they wanted to have some big stars attending their weddings,” said Akki before handing the mike to one of the grooms.
The groom revealed, “When we were having our court marriage, we dreamt of having some stars for our wedding. Luckily my aunt had a contact in UTV and it was made possible. I still can’t believe stars have come to our wedding.”
Akshay, now in a calmer tone, added, “This isn’t a publicity stunt. It was just a coincidence that their wedding happened during the same time as our film’s promotion. We got a call from UTV and we are here. If we have made a mistake, please forgive us.”
Apart from Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Bobby Deol, Sonam Kapoor, Celina Jaitley and Anees Bazmee were also present at the event. THANK YOU releases on 8th April all over.
