He mounted on a two-wheeler to meander the entire length of the stadium on his bike. The fans went out of control seeing their favorite actor from that close.
He was accompanied by his film’s co-star Kajal Aggarwal who debuted with Ajay Devgn starrer “Singham”. She too reached out to the audience.
She greeted them saying, “Hi Delhi, Namaste. I am very happy to be here. I love the city, its food. It`s always a pleasure to be here.”
When Akshay was asked about his favorite team he refused to choose one saying, “I am supporting the best team, may the best one win.”
He added saying, “Hockey is an amazing game. Imagine catching a ball which is rolling at the speed of 140 kms per hr!"
