Akshay Kumar has a minor accident while shooting for Thumbs Up ad
Akshay Kumar, better known as The Khiladi of Bollywood, is an absolute and complete daredevil. This actor is often known to perform his own stunts in movies and ads. He likes performing his own stunts, as he is a trained martial arts expert, which keeps him fit and gives him a feeling of excitement. However, one such occasion recently, where Akki was doing a stunt for Thumbs Up, has left him with minor burns and bruises.
Akshay was injured while doing a stunt for a Thumbs Up commercial in Cape Town, South Africa last week. The actor burnt his right foot and is currently undergoing medication. The accident occurred when Akshay was riding a bike and had to take a leap with the bike over a pit of fire. The heat from the exhaust pipe of the bike burnt Akshay’s skin and he was rushed to a local hospital.
An eyewitness to the accident claims, “Akshay was on a speeding bike and his foot touched the burning exhaust pipe. Initially he wasn’t perturbed, but gradually, the pain became unbearable. It has left a bad scar.” Akshay who is currently shooting for Priyadarshan’s ‘Bhaagam Bhaag’, was spotted with a plaster around his leg at Filmistan Studio in Goregaon. Sources say he was in a lot of pain earlier, and hence his makeup artist, Narendra Dada who is also a certified Ayurvedic doctor gave him ointments and some other herbal medicines.
Regardless of the accident, Akshay, the ever professional and workaholic is not skipping work for his minor injury, in fact, he is still shooting continuously round the clock to complete his pending assignments before he takes off for his world tour. Akshay is very excited about this tour titled Heat. He will be performing along with Saif Ali Khan, Preity Zinta, Sushmita Sen and Celina Jaitley. Unfortunately, this is not the fist time that Akshay Kumar has had an accident on sets, for his film Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, he hurt his back and was hospitalized for two weeks. While doing ‘Garam Masala’ he banged his head into a wooden cabinet and in ‘Deewane Hue Paagal’ despite a foot injury, he shot for a music video with Shahid Kapoor. Seems like our dearest Akki is quite accident-prone.
Nevertheless, Akshay says, “I am recovering fast.” Let’s hope that Akshay has a quick recovery and can get back on his feet quickly, so that he can carry on with his box-office hits.
