Akshay Kumar witty responds to reporter when asked how he handled ‘women’s tantrums’ on Raksha Bandhan sets

Actor Akshay Kumar had a clever answer when inquired whether he had to deal with ‘tantrums’ while filming for his forthcoming movie Raksha Bandhan with five ladies. In the movie, Akshay portrays the role of a businessman who promises to marry off his four sisters, portrayed by Sahejmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna, Sadia Khateeb, and Smrithi Srikanth, before he can wed his Gf, portrayed by Bhumi Pednekar.

At the trailer launch event for the movie on Tuesday, Akshay was questioned how he figured out to work with his five co-stars as women are known to have ‘sweet tantrums.’ Akshay said that he has never seen any of his women co-stars having tantrums.

The reporter asked Akshay, “You are the only man that can be seen in the trailer, with four sisters and Bhumi. When you film with women, they have these sweet tantrums. To kis tarike se aapko jhelne pade chaaron ke aur Bhumi ke (How did you have to tolerate these tantrums of the four sisters and Bhumi).” While Bhumi laughed, Akshay responded, “Sabse pehle tu ye bata kaunsi ladki ke saath ghumta hai tu ki tantrums hote hain (First of all tell me who are you hanging out with where she has tantrums).”

Akshay continued, “Mere ko to koi tantrum nazar nahi aaya inka. Koi sweet veet koi tantrum nahi. Mujhe to bada hi normal laga. Tune kaun se tantrum jhelein hain. Aisa koi tantrum nhi tha inlogo ke saath. Maze karne aaye the maze karke chale gaye (I didn’t see any kind of tantrums, be it sweet, from either of them. I found everything very normal. What kind of tantrums did you have to suffer. I didn’t see any tantrums with them, we were there to have fun and we did that and left).”
The movie, helmed by Aanand L Rai, will release on August 11.
