The football fever may be on in full swing but Bollywood's very own Khiladi- Akshay Kumar seems to be busy practising and playing cricket. In case you are wondering what we are talking about, well it's all about Patiala House - Akshay's big release this year in which the actor plays a cricketer. Akki recently shot for the film at some of London's historic stadiums with some of the top international cricketers. We bring you a few images of the same. Enjoy!
Akshay who is seen wearing the England cricket team's jersey plays a fast bowler who plays for England in this Nikhil Advani directed film. The actor even undertook bowling lessons from veteran Indian cricketer Balwinder Singh Sandhu to look the part. The team of Patiala House shot at some world class stadiums like The Oval and Lords in London something which no other Bollywood film unit has managed to do.

Patiala House also features a host of real life cricketers who would be seen sharing screen space with Akki. Pakistani cricketer Kamran Akmal, former English player David Gower and Balwinder Singh Sandhu are in the film.
Akki's close friend and filmmaker Vipul Shah also paid the actor a visit during his shooting stint in UK. Vipul's next release is the Akshay Kumar- Aishwarya starrer Action Replayy which hits theatres this Diwali.
Apart from shooting the cricket portions, Akki also shot for some other scenes of the film in which he is seen donning the Sikh get-up. The actor will be hoping that like his earlier release Singh Is Kinng in which he played a sardar, he once again hits jackpot with Patiala House.
