The two leading actors of producer Vipul Shah’s upcoming venture, ‘Holiday – A Soldier Is Never Off Duty’, Akshay Kumar and Sinakshi Sinha became victims of the so-called language barrier, when some of their Tamilian crew members couldn’t follow the instructions given by their Hindi-speaking colleagues. When the shooting was going-on in a desert in Jaipur, some unit members were asked to throw sand, for the required effect. Later, there were orders to stop throwing sand, but the Tamilian crew couldn’t follow the instructions as they couldn’t speak in Hindi.
Says producer Vipul Shah, “Sand got into Akki and Sonakshi’s eyes, hair and clothes. It was worse for Sonakshi, but she, Akshay and my director Murugadoss treated the situation like a comedy of errors and laughed off the whole thing. They were truly sporting. Otherwise, a situation like this could have brought the shooting to a halt.”
