During a comedy show, Rohit Shetty appeared with his ‘Golmaal Again’ cast and revealed that he was Akshay Kumar’s body double for his 1994 film ‘Suhaag’. Akshay who was one of the judges of the show, jokingly recalled meeting Shetty for the first time on the sets of Suhaag as an assistant director.
To this, Shetty smiled and revealed, “During ‘Suhaag’, I was actually his (Akshay’s) body double. I even learnt his walk for it.” He went on to copy Akki’s walk on the stage and the two had a blast.
Akshay and Rohit Shetty collaborated for their first action-entertainer ‘Sooryavanshi’, released last year on the Diwali weekend. Starring big names such as Katrina Kaif with Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn’s special appearance, the film minted big figures at the Box Office starting from ₹26 crores on its opening day.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Rohit Shetty has ‘Cirkus’ as his upcoming project. Starring Ranveer Singh, Jacqueline Fernandez and Pooja Hegde, the film is said to be the remake of ‘Angoor’, inspired by William Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’.
