Akshay Kumar was promoting Mission Mangal with his team, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari and Sonakshi Sinha, and director Jagan Shakti in Delhi. The actor had a press conference when a journalist’s phone started ringing. Instead of letting it ring, the actor decided to answer the call.
During the press meets, many journalists record the conversations on call. One of the journalist’s phones rang and Akshay Kumar responded to it by saying, “Hello Krishna, hum log ek press conference main hain. Main Akshay Kumar bol raha hu… thodi der main call karna.” Everyone in the audience burst into laughter.
Akshay Kumar recently became the only Indian actor to be featured in World’s 100 Highest-Paid Celebrities in Forbes’ yearly list. The actor recently revealed that god has been very kind. There were times when he was struggling, felt completely let down and refused to think ahead. He said that every time he feels down, he sees all his possessions, his residence etc which he has earned after so much hard work. He said that God has given him a lot that he doesn’t even think he has the right to feel low because there are people who don’t even have anything. If he thinks more about it, he would consider himself the most selfish person. Akshay further said that when he started in the industry, he did not even have Rs. 200 in his pocket. Now, he has a lot.
Coming back to Mission Mangal, the film is set to release on Independence Day 2019.
