Akshay Kumar is one of the most hard-working actors in Bollywood. He is always admired for his dedication but this time the actor just went a step ahead to prove his worth.
Currently, Akshay is working on his upcoming film Good Newws which also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani. The film is helmed by Raj Mehta and he considers himself fortunate to have roped an actor who could understand the severity of the situation.
Recently, the team of Good Newws was scheduled to shoot a promotional song and Mehta revealed that his leading man Akshay Kumar had sustained a back injury; still, he managed to work under his poor health.
He was also running a fever on the night before the shoot. We weren't expecting him to show up, but surprisingly, he did and even managed to pull off the choreography set by Bosco [Martis]- Raj Mehta
He also suggested alternate dates that could allocate another date suitable for all co-stars - including Kareena Kapoor Khan, Diljit Dosanjh and Kiara Advani would have been difficult.
As soon as I announced cut, I could see that he was still in pain. I had heard numerous stories of his professionalism over his 25-year career, but to witness it first-hand was amazing.- Raj Mehta
A report in Mid-Day quoted a source saying the makers had erected an expensive set in Chandigarh for the song, which was to be filmed over three days. "Akshay had sustained a back injury a few months ago, and it was triggered during a workout session. The team deployed a physiotherapist on set. Akshay completed the shoot before schedule."
