Akshay Kumar, the incorrigible 'flirt'

Akshay Kumar When he was single he used to flirt with pretty young things in Bollywood. Now that he's married and has a son, Akshay Kumar says he loves to flirt with something more dangerous.

It's not about the number of kisses he showers on his co-star Kareena Kapoor in Kambakkht Ishq . Nor is it about his passionate lip-lock with Hollywood hottie Denise Richards. It's about a flirtation that runs deep in Khiladi Kumar - flirting with fear.

As an actor who began his Bollywood career with action roles, Akshay loves to try out deadly stunts that pump up his adrenaline and push his physical limits further. However, Akshay had to put this love for action on backburner in the years his son Aarav was growing up. But now that Aarav is no longer a toddler, Akshay can return to his first love - stunts.




Yup, that's what he plays in 'Kambakkht Ishq' - a stuntman. Naturally, he did all his stunts, regardless of risk, himself. One of them involved jumping from the fifth floor of a building. To everyone's shock Akki decided to do the stunt without any use of cables, because he did not want his fans to feel cheated while watching the film.

In the scene shot under the supervision of Hollywood's action director Spiros Razzatos, Akshay smashes through a glass window, falls from the fifth floor and lands on cardboard boxes. The scene had him playing the body double for Brandon Routh, the 'Superman' star who has a cameo in the movie.

"I was very apprehensive. There were no cables to help Akshay if things went wrong," said director Sabbir Khan , recalling his nervousness at the time of the shoot.

But Akshay did the stunt so brilliantly that it was okayed in just one take. The superstar admits he was scared while shooting the scene, but adds that he overcame it.

"I live to feel fear, that's why I enjoy life so much. I fight fear, flirt with fear, but I don't live with it," said Akshay.

Another stunt in the film has Akshay jumping through fire on a jet ski. You can watch it all when the film releases on July 3, with paid previews on selected theatres on July 2 evening.
