Akshay Kumar gets injured in mob fury outside night clubAkshay's stint as a deejay at a suburban club in Mumbai on Saturday night as part of a promotion for his new film nearly ended in disaster. The star who was out to have fun at the club playing his favourite songs from the 1970s, ended up with injuries in his arms legs and back.
Mob fury beat down on Akshay, his co-star Aditya Roy Kapoor and director Vipul Shah when youngsters were not allowed to enter the jam-packed club. They vented their fury on the club-lobby, shattering the glass cases and breaking the furniture as Akshay and his team tried to make their get-away from the back entrance.
Shudders Vipul, "It was a nightmare. It took us a good half an hour to make our way from the back entrance to Akshay's car. By then the damage was done."
Akshay has forbidden his colleagues who were with him on Saturday evening from talking about his injuries.
"Achcha nahin lagta. They were well-meaning fans," Akshay reasons.
To recap to Saturday evening, Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were supposed to act as deejays on Saturday night at the club Polyster. Aishwarya couldn't make it. So Akshay braved the club armed with his favourite 1970s tracks including John Travolta's 'Saturday Night Fever', 'Jai Jai Shiv Shankar' (Aap Ki Kasam), 'La Bamba' and 'Tum Kya Jaano' (Hum Kissise Kam Nahin).
Within half an hour the crowd increased, with people trying to get into the Club.
Shudders Vipul, "The door of the club had to be shut. Those who couldn't get in got restless and angry. They started breaking all the glass and furniture. We fled through the backdoor. But not before facing the mob at the back entrance."
Looking back Vipul sighs, "Thank God Aishwarya couldn't make it. I can't begin to imagine what would've happened if she was present."
Says Akshay, "Hota hai. It was good fun. I got to play my favourite John Travolta track. It's a pity my event with John didn't materialize. I was out of town when he was in Mumbai. And when I returned he had left Mumbai."...being a human...
