Before starting shooting for Vipul Shah’s ‘Namaste London’, Akshay Kumar has promised his co-star Upen Patel to train him in martial arts. Currently, Akshay is busy in London shooting for Priyadarsan’s ‘Bhagam Bhaag’ with Govinda.
Kumar agreed to Upen’s request after he received a sms from him. Upen had admitted of being his fan and also said that he wanted a physique like Akshay. To this, Akshay was highly flattered. He said that he has never received such flattering messages from any of his co-stars. He jokingly said that more often his co-stars accuse him for chopping their roles.
Well, to increase your general knowledge, let me tell you…. Akshay Kumar has been professionally trained in Karate and Kung Fu and has also done a television show on martial arts for Discovery Channel. He is a fitness freak in the true sense. He said that he likes people who are sincere about working out and admits that Upen is a very fit person. Kumar also said that all Upen needs is a little guidance which can make him perfect.
Upen is highly excited about all this. He said that he generally messaged Akshay after watching ‘Phir Hera Pheri’. No doubt Upen is fit; he has always admired Akshay for his looks and his fitness and wants to be fit like him.
Patel’s family is based in London and his mother is quite fond of Kumar. Kumar has promised Upen that he will visit his place. So Upen’s mom is already very excited. Infact, she called up Upen to inquire about Akshay’s favourite dishes.
So we can see that the two hunks are busy bonding with each other. It seems as if they want to put an end to controversies even before they arise. Patel meanwhile is set to leave for South Africa to shoot for Suneel Darshan’s film.
