Akshay Kumar cries at ‘Housefull 3’ success bash

The team of ‘Housefull 3’ hosted a grand party to celebrate the immense success of the comedy which has crossed the Rs 100 crore mark in its worldwide collection and garnered over Rs 80 crore in the first week of its release.

Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan, Chunkey Pandey, Boman Irani, producer Sajid Nadiadwala, director duo Sajid-Farhad and others were seen having a gala time at the bash on Thrusday night (June 9).

The actors, especially the ‘Airlift’ star, cracked up everyone present with their jokes and funny poses. Akshay was moved to tears when a reporter quizzed him why he doesn’t get any awards at esteemed functions despite his movies earning crores at the box office.

Akshay jestingly burst into tears and wiping away his tears with a handkerchief, said, “Award… award kabhie nai milta hai (I never get awards).” His crying act sent everyone laughing. But on a serious note, the actor added, “I don’t have a problem. It is okay if I don’t get awards, but I get rewards.”

When he was asked about his opion on whether awards are pre-decided, the actor sent out another laughing spell saying, “Haan, do baar maine kiya hai. Bina lifafa khole jo saamne baitha hai usko de diya (Yes, I did it twice. Without opening the envelope, gave it to whoever was sitting in front).”

There was another twist at the party. The ‘Housefull 3’ team celebrated the success with pizzazs instead of cutting a cake. The guests were also served pizzas.

Akshay will be next seen in the role of a Naval officer in ‘Rustom’ which releases on August 12.
