Neeraj Pandey and Akshay Kumar are fast emerging as the new hit jodi in B-town. After the critically acclaimed Special 26 , the duo have teamed up yet again for their next, Baby.
Like Hollywood’s golden pair Martin Scorsese and Leonardo Di Caprio, Neeraj feels he has met his muse in Akshay. Marty and Leo have worked in several films together and all have done well at the box-office or at least, been critically acclaimed like Shutter Island, The Aviator and The Wolf of Wall Street to name a few. Although Akshay and Neeraj’s association is just one film old, the duo insist their collaboration is special.
Akshay says, “What I felt for Neeraj in Special 26 has literally tripled while working with him in Baby. I never thought this was possible as I had already put him on the highest of pedestals. Every day he asks something of me that is so refreshing that I never need to rethink on how to play my character.”
Every role in a Neeraj film, Akshay attests, is unique and “pushes me to the limits. All I have to do is follow his vision and portray the character he lays out on paper. Shooting for this man has been one of the greatest pleasures in my acting career.”
