Meet Bollywood's Road Runner!
The rains may try their best to trip Mumbai’s traffic, but Akshay Kumar had no hang-ups when it came to abandoning his car and zooming off on a bike to reach his destination on Saturday. Until a few years ago, he was one of the few actors who preferred to reach his locations on a bike. The bike rides saved him considerable time, instead of lumbering along in cars with tinted glasses.
According to our source, Akshay was shooting for De Dana Dan at Filmistan Studios in Goregaon during the day and had to reach Sajid Nadiadwala’s office in Versova for a Kambakkht Ishq press conference in the evening. The source said, “It was raining very heavily and everyone was complaining about the traffic jam. Akshay’s shoot had already been stretched by an hour. Around 6.30pm, he called his hairstylist Milan Jadhav and asked him if he had his bike. He organised a helmet and a raincoat, and zoomed off.”
Milan Jadhav confirmed the news, “Yes, Akshay sir asked me to bring my bike to the location. I sat behind him. If he had gone by car, he would have taken at least three hours in the rain because of the traffic jam, but on the bike we reached in 18 minutes.”
