EXCLUSIVE: “Akshay Kumar is a trained photographer”- reveals Dabboo Ratnani

Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has been a regular when it comes to the Dabboo Ratnani calendar shoot and this year was no different. Talking about shooting with Akshay, Dabboo said, “Akshay and I have been shooting together since the start of my career. He has been a part of the calendar shoots right from 2001 and I shoot a lot with him. I shoot an extensive amount of all his ad campaigns, all his personal shoots, and film publicity. I have done a lot of work with Akshay. In fact, we even did some stuff for BellBottom which will come out soon. He is very spontaneous, energetic, and a lot of ‘masti’. His shoot lasts for very little time, he is very quick. So he is great fun to be with, great energy. He wakes up early morning and even I am a morning person. Sometimes my shoots are at 5-6 in the morning and we are back home by 9 in the morning. In the four-five hours, we have achieved so much while the whole country is still asleep. I think his energy is infectious and he has so much positivity.”

Dabboo also revealed that Akshay Kumar is himself a trained photographer and his perspective helps on location. “He is trained as a photographer. Before he came into the acting business, he actually assisted a photographer. So he has a lot of perspective in terms of lighting, posing and what would kind of work. It helps to have this perspective in the picture as well,” he said.
