‘Boss’ made Akshay Kumar nostalgic

Shooting for action-comedy “Boss” was almost like going down memory lane for Bollywood’s ‘khiladi’ Akshay Kumar as he shot a major part of the movie in Bangkok and Delhi – two important cities in his life’s journey.

Akshay Kumar  grew up in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk area, and it was in Bangkok that he worked as a chef and learnt martial arts. The actor had even once become emotional while shooting for the movie, said a source close to the project’s unit.

“We were shooting for a scene in Chandni Chowk and it was hardly some 200 metres away from Akshay’s old house. That was the place where he grew up…Akshay Kumar wanted a glimpse of his old house as he hadn’t visited the place for a few years now.

“But it was impossible for him to reach his old house in Chandni Chowk in the day as he would get mobbed by the crowd. So one early morning, at 4 a.m., Akshay Kumar drove the car himself and went outside his house, stood there for 30 minutes and relived the old happy days,” said the source.

While the experience left Akshay Kumar all emotional, he has made sure “Boss” tickles the funny bone of the audiences.

Directed by Anthony D’Souza, the film also stars Mithun Chakraborty, Shiv Pandit, Aditi Rao Hydari, Danny Denzongpa, Ronit Roy and Johnny Lever.

Co-produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Cape Of Good Films and Ashwin Varde Productions, “Boss” will release in October.
