Akshay Kumar is not only shooting 12 hours a day at Universal Studio in LA for Sajid Nadiadwala's Kambakth Ishq but also stays up nights to promote his upcoming release Singh Is Kinng.
As his interviews are with the radio and print media in the UK and India, Akki has been addressing them at odd hours of the night given the eight-hour time difference between LA and the UK and the 12-and-a-half-hour time difference in India.

Says a source close to the actor, "When he has a morning shift, he does a few interviews at 8 am (LA time) before his shoot begins. And once the shoot is in progress he's doing them in between shots. If he has an evening shift, he sets up interviews at 4 am LA time before going to bed.
Sometimes his interviews happen even at 12 am and for Akshay that's late as he goes to sleep early. By morning, he's reporting at 9 am sharp for his Kambakht Ishq shoot. Being a loving husband, he doesn't neglect his duties at home. Whenever he gets time, he takes Twinkle out for dinner and some pampering. Akki is exhausted but he doesn't complain."
The actor will be in India by August 5 to promote Singh Is Kinng till its release on August 8. Which isn't a lot, considering that Aamir Khan kept aside 45 days for the promotion of Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na.
