Akshay fined by Canadian cop? The real truth

Guess this is how the game of Chinese Whispers is played. The only difference is that this time around, despite the fact that there was no whisper whatsoever, a rumour turned into a full fledged noise. So much so that no one touched by it is overtly pleased with the turn of events.


Earlier this week it was ‘reported’ that Akshay Kumar was fined in Canada by a cop because his car had hit latter’s during the shooting of Thank You. Though this was all a part of the scene, the cop didn’t realise that and assuming that Akshay had broken law, he issued him a ticket.


“What nonsense, there was no such instance whatsoever, let aside a ticket being issued”, says a senior member from the film’s production unit, “Kahin se bhi kuch bhi khabar aa jaati hai jab overseas shooting ho rahi hoti hai. It is the work of some idle brain that has just been fed to media. There was no mishap or any fine at all. In fact we out here in Canada got to know about such ‘incident’ only after Anees Bazmee (the director) and other started getting calls from Mumbai.”


Though it is being stated that the cast and crew of Thank You was left amused with this incident, in real life no one is sounding half as amused today with this frivolous piece of information.


“How can one be”, questions the unit member, “Kuch toh sach hona chahiye? If you do put one and one together, you can still come up with eleven. But here there was nothing at all. No such scene was even being shot, let aside Akshay’s car hitting someone else’s. Aur yeh cop kahan se aaya?”


However, not just the cop’s presence was confirmed, it was also reported that he had his picture clicked with Akshay after realising his true identity as a Bollywood superstar.


Laughs our source, “This is not India where some law and order officer in uniform can possibly get a picture clicked with a celebrity during office hours and get scot-free. In Canada, you can’t expect that to happen. If at all such a picture would have been clicked, this cop would have been pronto taken to task by his senior. No one dares to get this adventurous.”


Well, that should pretty bring all speculations to rest.
