Even though there has been lot said and written about Akshay’s character being based on yesteryear villain Ranjeet, it was mutually decided by the actor and his director (Sajid Khan) that none of the gestures would ever look vulgar on screen. Also, Akshay wanted to make sure that his first time pairing with leading lady Asin stood out as well. Since in the film it is Asin on whom Akshay casts his eye, one does assume that it must have been fun for him to have an actress like her on his side.
“An actress like ‘her’? You make it sound like she is a Channel handbag on my side”, winks Akshay, “Well, you could be right. She is definitely one of the kind and very classy. She is also extremely professional about her presence, wardrobe, rehearsals and basically overall aura on set. Also, I must say that she was very sporting. It is not easy being on set with a load of actors trying to tease the ladies every five minutes. However Asin did it with grace and good bit of cheekiness in return. She is an actress that every hero would love to work with.”
After Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Sonakshi Sinha, do we see a new pairing in the making in the form of Akshay-Asin?
