Akshay kind hearted gesture:

The process of film-making has its share of pleasant and unpleasant memories. Producers often complain of tantrum-throwing and pricey stars, who put them through an ordeal during the making of the film. On the other hand, there are instances of stars who go out of their way to accommodate producers and don’t hesitate in sacrificing their other commitments. Akshay Kumar is a case in point. A few months ago, there were reports that Akshay had refused to work with a well-known producer-director with whom he once shared a close rapport. But Akshay’s gesture in completing his work for Kulbushan Gupta’s VIDROH speaks volumes of his professional attitude. Just recently, he adjusted his dates and completed a 10-day re-shooting of practically 40 per cent of the film, without charging a single penny for it, since the producer felt that the much-delayed film needed a fresh look. What’s noteworthy is the fact that he agreed to do it even though the post-production work and dubbing of the film were entirely complete. “I did it because I felt that it was the least I could do for Kulbushan Gupta. He had signed me when I needed him and this was the best way to repay his gesture. Besides, the subject of the film is bold and contemporary. The film deserves a right to be exhibited and its fresh look will now change its look in the distribution market,” Akshay disclosed, when asked about it.
