Jaipur is lucky for me: Sonakshi Sinha
Akshay Kumar, before even reaching Jaipur, made sure he placed an order for his favourite Rajasthani cuisine. Askhay, who was in the Pink City with his OUATIMD co-star Sonakshi Sinha, to attend an event, however, refrained from sharing the menu. “I love the local food and hence ordered for it as soon as I boarded the flight,” said Akshay, “Ab yeh mat poochna kya order kiya,” he quipped. But he did give in to the audience’s demand to mouth one of his favourite dialogues, ‘Bacchey ki jaan lega kya?’ and his trademark laugh.
Sonakshi, who was with him, added that Jaipur was a lucky charm for her. “Jaipur is lucky for me, every time I have been to this city before a film release, it has been a blockbuster. Let’s hope for the same this time,” she said, as they were leaving to attend a show organized at a city mall.
Protests by Karni Sena
Anticipating a backlash for her controversial tele series Jodha Akbar, producer Ekta Kapoor, who had accompanied Akshay and Sonakshi to the Ajmer Dargah, was missing both at the press conference and the event in a city mall. However, her absence didn’t stop activists from protesting against the producer.
As Akshay and Sona interacted with the audience and broke into a dance, a helmet was flung at them. It landed near Sonakshi’s foot and the bouncers promptly whisked them away. As the actvists chanted slogans, the police tried dispersing the protesters, only to see them trying to damage the car ferrying the stars.
