Superstar Salman Khan is known to go out of his way to do special songs and cameos for friends. What he expects in return is decent footage.
Unfortunately, someone like Akshay Kumar didn’t seem to have taken that into consideration. Akki was supposed to shoot with Sallu for the title track of Fugly a few days ago, but what happened on sets was a killjoy for the producers as well as Akki, who is also a co-producer.
It’s being said that after the shoot started, Salman Khan realised that it is Akshay Kumar who hogs most of the limelight in the special song, and that probably didn’t go down well with the actor, the main attraction of the song.
“Sallu did not know about the details of the song and was briefed when he arrived on the set. Since Akshay had more screen time in the song, he coolly walked off after shooting the first stanza of the song, much to everyone's shock,” a source is quoted as saying.
Salman apparently didn’t stay for the entire shoot. It’s being said that despite the efforts made by director Kabir Sadanand, Sallu refused to shoot the rest of the song, which was centred on a lyrical exchange between Akshay and Sallu.
The makers have somehow managed to wrap up the song with Akki and the rest of the actors. Apparently, Akshay Kumar is yet to talk to Salman Khan regarding the matter.
