Akshay Kumar pulls off a coup

Akshay Kumar has been hitting headlines lately for bonding with Shah Rukh Khan among other things and is being seen as making inroads into the SRK camp.

However, it comes as a surprise to know that the concept promo of his next production Oh My God featuring a voice over by the actor’s good friend Salman Khan will release along with his film Rowdy Rathore this Friday.

We had reported how Akshay and Shah Rukh bonded at an IPL match at Pune with SRK inviting his former archrival to Mannat for dinner. Then again, the two partied together at Prabhudheva’s Chennai bash, rounding it off with some mean moves on Rowdy’s now famous Chinta ta number.

At this juncture, Akki’s balancing act between two warring camps comes as a masterstroke. Seems the actor is sending out a clear message of neutrality; that he isn’t particularly gravitating toward either side and more importantly, is on friendly terms with both.

We can only say it’s a shrewd move on the actor’s part. Meanwhile, the concept promo is a first for the industry and was the brainchild of Ashvini Yardi of Akshay’s production house, Grazing Goat Pictures.

When contacted, she said, “The idea was to create a concept driven teaser based on the main story of the film and establish the character of its protagonist Kanjhibhai. We wanted a simple trailer which will have a mass connect and at the same time arouse curiosity.
